Men: Dark Phoenix Reshoots to Run Two and a Half Weeks

X-Men Dark Phoenix Header

Both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants have been surrounded by controversy and rumor as of late, as it's been reported both movies are to undergo major reshoots, with rumors from a Fox Studios leaker even offering they have been canceled because of the Fox Studios and Disney merger.

According to a recent report, 20th Century Fox's reshoots for X-Men sequel Dark Phoenix are a bit more extensive than we initially believed. So much so that it was dubious considering two of the key cast members, James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain, are now shooting It: Chapter Two until November, and the release date for X-Men: Dark Phoenix is in February. The film is indeed going back for additional photography in Montreal, but it's only scheduled to last two and a half weeks.

Our sources tell us that the additional photography will involve some additional action in the film's third act, a couple of new scenes, and adding some shots for existing scenes.

This again connects with previous press releases that said the delay was at least in part due to talent's schedule, which made the original November 2 window impossible.

Moreover, it's unsurprising that these reshoots are necessary in the first place, seeing as how some of Dark Phoenix's key players have also been busy with other projects.

It's unclear which actors, exactly, are involved in the additional photography, but both Chastain and James McAvoy are now in the midst of shooting IT Chapter Two and Turner only recently wrapped the final season of Game of Thrones, so those three actors playing major characters have been/are tied up for quite some time.

Similarly, McAvoy and Chastain are shooting the second It movie, as adult Bill and Beverly, until November for Warner Bros.

Though Fox has done a good job at keeping most of the issues with X-Men: Dark Phoenix a secret, it has been incredibly clear that the movie has a decent number of problems.
