Fox has some big Marvel plans in the next few years besides “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” “Deadpool 2,” and the new X-Men spin-off, “New Mutants” as the studio has planted flags for 6 untitled Marvel Movies.

The studio has also set release dates for the Drew Goddard-penned “Bad Times at the El Royale,” its adaptation of Don Winslow’s novel “The Force,” and the animated “Nimona,” based on the comic by Noelle Stevenson.

The dates are:

“Bad Times at the El Royale”: October 5, 2018.

“The Force”: March 1, 2019.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: June 7, 2019.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: November 22, 2019.

“Nimona”: February 14, 2020.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: March 13, 2020.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: June 26, 2020.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: October 2, 2020.

UNTITLED FOX/MARVEL FILM: March 5, 2021.

In addition, the in-development animated film “Anubis,” originally set for a March 23, 2018 release, has been removed from the release schedule.

One of the six untitled Fox/Marvel films is most likely going to be for another “X-Men” movie after “Dark Phoenix.” While we don’t know what the plans are for the “Fantastic Four” characters, could the studio be using one of these dates for another installment, whether it will be a continuation of the 2015 franchise or a complete reboot? Only time will tell. Even though the “Gambit” film, starring Channing Tatum, doesn’t have a director attached right now, maybe it will be slotted for one of those dates.

The other wildcard is “X-Force.” That film has been discussed for years and “Deadpool 2” is said to set-up “X-Force.” With characters like Domino and Cable included in next year’s “Deadpool” sequel, it seems safe to assume “X-Force” will follow close behind. Fox also has plans for a third “Deadpool” to close out a trilogy. There’s also been talk about a Laura/X-23 spin-off starring Dafne Keen, the young breakout star of “Logan.”

“New Mutants” is set for release April 13, 2018, followed by “Deadpool 2” on June 1, 2018, and “Dark Phoenix” on Nov. 2, 2018.
