That didn’t cease these films from being tremendous profitable. Iron Man was the primary film out of the gate, premiering in 2008 to favorable opinions. Then when Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, film manufacturing was taken up a notch with the Avenger movies, and the MCU simply turned a massively worthwhile franchise.

The New Mutants was initially pitched as the primary in a trilogy however with Disney now buying Fox, all of these initiatives have been placed on maintain. Nonetheless, it appears, in the meanwhile, The New Mutants will in all probability be one of the best shot at an X-Males movie for fairly a while.
