Fox Schedule Fantastic Four, Give The 3D Treatment To Apes, X-Men And Percy Jackson

We already knew that The Wolverine was being post converted to 3D for its release but if there was any doubt, 20th Century Fox’s press release of yesterday evening can clear that up for you.

Also set for 3D exhibition if not necessarily production are the subsequent X-Men film, Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

There’s been talk going around that Days of Future Past might shot in 48fps 3D but, far from this being official, it all stems from a single tweet Bryan Singer made after the World Premiere of The Hobbit:

So don’t bank on that just yet.

What was on Fox’s official press release was a title and opening date for the new Fantastic Four film. They’ve slotted it in on March 6th, 2015 and will be calling it, plainly and simply, The Fantastic Four.

I suppose they could have ditched the The.

March is quite an unexpected release date for a licensed superhero picture. Perhaps they’re not planning to go all-out tentpole on us. Perhaps director Josh Trank is set to deliver something just a little smaller?

Or perhaps Fox are just trying to get in, get out before the Summer of 2015 and arrival of the second Avengers, the next Star Wars, and if Warner Bros. can sort themselves out, Justice League.
