Deadpool 2, Avatar 2, 3, 4 & 5, New X-Men Movies Release Dates

avatar movie

The release dates for a number of upcoming Fox films have been released.

I sure hope you liked Avatar because the team has just announced the release dates for its upcoming sequels. All four of them. Additionally, Fox has revealed the release dates for Deadpool 2, and its two upcoming X-Men projects: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants.

Here are all the dates:

  • Avatar 2 - December 18, 2020
  • Avatar 3 - December 17, 2021
  • Avatar 4 - December 20, 2024
  • Avatar 5 - December 19, 2025
  • Deadpool 2 - June 1, 2018
  • Dark Phoenix - November 2, 2018
  • The New Mutants - April 13, 2018

"So we're not making Avatar 2," said director James Cameron. "We're making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It's an epic undertaking. It's not unlike building the Three Gorges dam. (Laughs) So I know where I'm going to be for the next eight years of my life." All four movies are reportedly being filmed at the same time.

Good news, everyone! The MCU is no longer going to be the butt-monkey of every hipster, now that they can return their attention to the single most over-hated movie of all time.

One wonders how many of those release dates will be accurate.

Avatar 5 - December 19, 2025? The mole people might take over by then and declare that day a holiday for cinema staff.

Notice that the Avatar sequels are all coming out in the Christmas season after episode 9 is supposed to have finished up the sequel trilogy. Pure coincidence I'm sure.

Who gives a shit about Avatar? I'm interested in this New X-Men thing. Will they have Dafne Keene in it? That's something legitimately new that I want to see.

Why is the movie scene slowly sounding like it's becoming absolute shit, run by people who don't actually wanna make good movies? Sounds familiar compared to another industry, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

-Deadpool 2: Bleh
-Dark Phoenix: Meh
-New Mutants: Followup to Logan with Laura and co.? If so, my 'giving a shit' meter just spiked.

Myself, and everyone else who made it one of the highest grossing movies ever.

That said, I can't see this ending well. Filing all these films back to back, the delays, the fact that (IMO) the original never needed a sequel, etc.

Avatar 2: The Unobtanium Wars!!
Avatar 3: Revenge Of The Na'vi!!!

Avatar 4: A New Avatar!
Avatar 5: The Humans Strike Back!!
Avatar 6: The Return of the RDA!!!

Avatar 7: The Eywa Awakens!
Avatar 8: The Last Avatar(s)!!

Wow, Avatar 2 in 2020? I seriously wish I knew what was going on behind the scenes.

Eh, wow. I mean Avatar was really pretty but I didn't leave the theater wishing for more of it. It also had as classic of a ending as you can get: good guys win, bad guys get their butt kicked, guy gets back together with girl after temporary break up, etc. So to make not 1, not 2 for a trilogy, but FOUR more movies? Big NTY. Maybe a sequel or even a trilogy just to see how it ends but 5? That just makes me not want to get back on that boat at all, especially when the first ride was already good enough.

Sweet, 4 more Dances With Wolves movies? Colour me excited!

Avatar is a good movie. James Cameron has never disappointed me.

So Avatar is going to be the new Christmas triloigy ish (don't know what you called a five) since the Hobbit Triliogy then?

While I got an idea what The New Mutants will be about but what about Dark Phoenix? That will take place after Days of the Future Past?

I wonder what movies J.C will totally not ripoff to make these additional movies?

You know, if he folded the Aliens and Terminator franchise in to Avatar, I would watch it.

I could possibly see him getting one one Avatar movie out out of the premise he set up in the first one. I honestly have no clue how he plans to fill 4 more. Something about underwater?

008Zulu:

That wouldn't be possible given the backstories/histories/worldbuilding of the three settings.

I can get behind Deadpool 2. The first movie was fun.

Avatar not so much. To me it was just a fancy retelling of the tale of Pocahontas in the first place which then got supplemented with highly questionable preaching about capitalism.

"Avatar 5". Just- revolting.

I'm not certain Avatar 1 really even justified its own existence, 5 does have a prayer.

Avatar was only a novelty with the nice CGI and good 3D. The story sucked ass, it was full of nonsense that they tried to present as being otherwise, the setting/world of the story was as if made by a 12 year old.

The sequels are not going to have the novelty quality, it's going to have to stand on its story, which considering what I just said about the setting, isn't going to be good.

Hawki:

The Terminator backstory has essentially become very expense toilet paper, so I don't think they'd have a problem.

Good enough for Avatar fucking 5 to have a release date already?

Lots of people give a shit about X-Men. X-Men is one of, if not the most (besides maybe Spider-Man) Marvel properties. I only am less enthused about the X-Men movies cause its not MCU, and they like to take more liberties than MCU does with the source.

If they ever remake Back to the Future (It will happen eventually, I am sure) I hope instead of "Jaws 19" its "Avatar 48"

Wow, I'll be 40 by the time Avatar 5 comes out. That's just weird to think about.

And while I really liked Avatar, I have to wonder how... 4 more movies? Probably more planets, space battles, the Navi fighting alongside the humans against a bigger threat, other advanced aliens, a Starcraft movie featuring the Navi? and so on, but still, that's a lot of movies. The Avatar Cinematic Universe!

Saelune:

Don't you jinx it, damn it!

Robert Zemeckis is fighting a fight. He promised that he will fight everything and everyone who wants to remake Back to the Future. Share your Energy with him!

OT: Meh, couldn't give less of a damn about "Worse Pocahontas" 2-5, Deadpool 2 I'll watch at least once, not expecting much from X-men movies, but after Logan who knows?

They've supposedly been planning Avatar 2 for years now, I'll believe its actually happening when I see it

Why are there more Avatar movies? The first one isn't as bad as people make it out to be, but that movie left no real opening for a sequel, nor did it really need one (let alone four).

Besides, we all know that the only reason the first one was a big success was because of how impressive the CGI was. But between 2009 and now, everyone become so completely numb to the stuff that I imagine there's nothing the new movies could do to impress anyone.

Deadpool 2. Hope it's good, we don't want another Iron Man situation on our hands (Great start, godawful sequels).

And more fucking X-Men movies...

Oh it gets better rumour has it the bad guy in the next Avatar movie is the same bad guy from the first one, you know the guy who very very clearly DIED at the end of the first movie.

I am with you on this one though Avatar had a nice closed loop in it's presentation and certainly didn't leave me wanting to know more.

Deadpool 2 yeah, loved the first.

Xmen, no idea, I get the impression the franchise has lost all direction, maybe I read the info wrong but is that TWO Xmen movies in one year?

Technically, that would be everyone who saw it. I can only speak for myself here, but I saw it, and it was pretty bland. I was more interested in figuring out why a planet covered in plants barely had any oxygen.

So the fate of a franchise, to tell a better Phoenix story than that abortion with Famke Janssen, lies on the shoulders of Sansa Stark - Sophie Turner. Dunno how I feel about that. She was ok as Jean in the last flick. I'll admit, seeing her really explode at the end was one of my favorite movie moments, ever. But this next one is gonna be her movie for good or ill. No side story, no "mutant cure", just lets watch Jean Grey go mad with power! No pressure. But I still haven't finished Legion yet - maybe the peculiar brain bug that David has will bear hidden fruit in an Onslaught to come.

I found District 9 to be the superior movie compared to Avatar.

But I am amazed you liked Avatar. At the risk of putting words in your mouth I thought you are the kind of movie person that would write the movie off as one big CGI fest.

It's an alien planet - those plants don't have to follow the same biological rules as ours do. So they can indeed produce some other gas than oxygen. And the other lifeforms might breath that gas instead of oxygen.
Doesn't seem like too hard of a concept to me.

Unlike the concept of FIVE movies on a yearly release. Two more? Okay, maybe a bit rushed but "two-part trilogy" isn't listed on TV Tropes for no reason, that's somewhat common. Three? Maybe stretching it a bit but more believable if more than 12 months are between them. Which they aren't right now. Four? Nope. That doesn't sound like it's going to work out.

Naldan:
Wow, Avatar 2 in 2020? I seriously wish I knew what was going on behind the scenes.

"Let's wait for new Star Wars trilogy to wrap up" - that in a nutshell.

I couldn't care less about Avatar. But I won't hate. There's always the possibility that they can make something interesting in the sequels. Just because I'm not interested doesn't mean I'm not open minded about it.

Its not because there is little Oxygen present, it's to do with the mix of gases in Pandoras atmosphere. There's way more CO2 present, so we can't breath it. Biologically that's sound, if the CO2 to O2 ratio is too high then Oxygen can't bind to Hemoglobin because CO2 has a higher affinity. Free Oxygen definitely exists as a relatively high component of Pandora's atmosphere, because otherwise all the fires wouldn't burn.

OT

FIVE Avitar Films!? What fresh hell is this?

I remember there being jokes about there being a bunch of Avatar sequels, and I think I saw those release dates in a recently RLM video, but I didn't believe it.
I can understand maybe having a trilogy, but five? FIVE?

...Who am I kidding? In this time of cinematic universes? People will happily eat down TWENTY movies. It just shouldn't even be a surprise at this point.

Why do I even care? I still have old movies to catch up on, let alone shit that ain't even out yet.
