Fox announced release dates including Wolverine sequel

Fox isn't wasting any time pushing their own Marvel franchises and yet another installment of Taken. The following release dates have been made official:
  • Fantastic Four 2 will hit on July 14, 2017
  • A sequel to The Wolverine is set for March 3, 2017
  • Taken 3 has reserved January 9, 2015
  • The Secret Service has switched from March 6, 2015 to October 24, 2015. It swapped places with an untitled Vince Vaughn flick. 
  • Frankenstein, starring Daniel Radcliffe, has moved from January 16, 2015 to October 2, 2015
  • An untitled Marvel project has reserved the date of July 13, 2018

Call me crazy, but I am expecting the untitled Marvel film to be yet another X-Men movie. There would be no telling whether it will be a solo origins movie or a continuation of X-Men: Apocalypse, set for release on May 27, 2016. At least not until we see Days of Future Past this May and Fantastic Four. I would bet if a FF sequel is hitting in 2017 that we won't see those characters again the very next year. Fox just doesn't own that many Marvel properties so we have limited options here. Especially since they gave up Daredevil.
However, Fox has already hired Simon Kinberg and given him the task to create an Avengers-like movie for with the Marvel properties they own, so it could very well be an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover movie. Maybe something that takes place the same time as The Avengers, but without the other characters actively showing up.

Personally, I am still hoping for a Deadpool movie but who knows if they will ever have the guts to make it happen.
