20th Century Fox and X-Men franchise favorite writer and producer Simon Kinberg (for better or for worse) recently spoke with That Hashtag Show at The Saturn Awards and he commented on several topics including Deadpool 2, X-Men, New Mutants, and Gambit giving some little updates!

“Uh, we’re figuring that out now. The first thing up, we’re shooting the Wolverine movie right now and we start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, then I sit down and start writing the next of the mainline X-Men movies.”

The writer & producer also commented on the status of New Mutants, confirming that Josh Boone is still directing and saying:

“a really good script and hoping to shoot that one real soon too.”

He also briefly mentioned the status of the Channing Tatum Gambit solo film saying:

“We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year.”
