Two new unnamed Marvel movies have reserved release dates as part of a larger schedule shake-up by 20th Century Fox, according to Variety. The studio has reportedly reserved the dates November 2, 2018 and February 14, 2019 for unspecified Marvel movies.

These two dates join several other mystery Marvel movie dates by Fox already on the books. March 2, 2018 and June 29, 2018 were already reserved by the studio, with a third - October 6, 2017 - being removed this month for a delayed Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

While Fox has staked out all four of the Marvel dates over various announcements, studios often don’t directly announce when they’re abandoned a date for an unnamed film, so the previous two dates should be considered very tentative.

That being said, Fox has four Marvel films in active development: the highly-awaited Deadpool sequel, New Mutants, X-Force, as well as the beleaguered Gambit movie. Given that the original Deadpool was released February 12, 2016 (Valentine's Day weekend), that February 14, 2019 could be the studio's attempt to mirror the release date.

The Kingsman sequel is being delayed from its originally-announced date of June 16, 2017 to October 6. No reason was given for that change.

While that movie is pushed back in this schedule shake-up by Fox, another sequel is moved forward: Alien: Covenant has been pushed up three months from August 4, 2017 to May 19, 2017.

Lastly, the studio has reserved December 21, 2018 for an unspecified movie from James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment. Variety speculates that it could be the long-in-development sequel to Avatar, which opened the same week in 2009.
