The "X-Men" are just going to have to wait.

20th Century Fox is shuffling around several of its films, including its next two "X-Men"-related installments. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" has been pushed back from Nov. 2, 2018 to Feb. 14, 2019.

Taking that Nov. 2 slot is Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody," which was set to bow on Christmas.

And now that Valentine's Day is taken, that pushes the medieval epic "The Kid Who Would Be King" back two weeks to March 1.

The studio is also delaying its "X-Men" horror-themed spinoff "The New Mutants" from its original date of Feb. 22, 2019 to Aug. 2, 2019.

James Mangold's cop thriller "The Force" is no longer slated for March 1, but will open at some undetermined time later.

It's unclear why 20th Century Fox is making these moves. Perhaps they feel they've got enough "X-Men" this year, with "Deadpool 2" opening in May. Or this could be some consequence of Disney's acquisition of Fox.
