Fox sets 'Wolverine' and 'Fantastic Four' release dates through 2018

It’s never too early to make movie plans. Especially when you’re a studio with a billion-dollar franchise at stake. 20th Century Fox, which has only recently cast its new Fantastic Four and has another X-Men movie out this summer, has announced release dates for Fantastic Four II, the next Wolverine standalone — and a mystery third Marvel film.

The rebooted Fantastic Four, with Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Miles Teller reportedly aboard, is scheduled for June 19, 2015, but Fox has already penciled in a sequel for July 14, 2017.

Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, who stars in this May’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, will return in another standalone movie, targeted for March 3, 2017. His last solo effort, 2013′s The Wolverine, grossed $414.8 million globally. That film’s director, James Mangold, is attached to the next sequel as well. (Another X-Men all-star movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, will open May 27, 2016.) READ FULL STORY

'Fantastic Four' casting: Fox zeroes in on its final 4

It’s almost clobberin’ time. Twentieth Century Fox is in serious talks with a quartet of in-demand actors to cast its new Fantastic Four. According to The Wrap, Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, and Michael B. Jordan are close to signing on for the superhero reboot from director Josh Trank. Jordan, who worked with Trank on Chronicle, has long been rumored to play Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, but Fox declined to confirm that a deal for the Fruitvale Station actor, or the other three stars, had been reached — yet.

Teller, who starred opposite Jordan in That Awkward Moment, is considered the frontrunner for Reed Richards, a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic. Mara (House of Cards) reportedly recently auditioned for the role of Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Woman, and Bell (AMC’s upcoming series, Turn) is linked to the CG-enhanced rock-hulk, the Thing, a.k.a. Ben Grimm.

Don’t expect Fox to take too much more time to announce their superheros. Fantastic Four already has a release date of June 19, 2015.

The 'Fantastic Four' reboot has an official release date

Five years after the release of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer — which was a real movie ,and not just a nightmare you had after drinking too much Vitamin Water — Fox has announced an official release date for a Fantastic Four reboot. The film is currently slated to hit theaters on March 6, 2015. If that date holds, FF would kick off a year jam-packed with superteams: Marvel’s Avengers 2 has colonized May 2015, while Warner Bros. is racing to develop a Justice League movie for later that summer. Disney is also prepping Star Wars: Episode VII for a 2015 release, which means that 2015 will be the geekiest year in movie theaters. READ FULL STORY
