CinemaCon is underway in Las Vegas and it was just revealed they will be incorporating the 20th Century Fox and Disney releases into their schedules. The 2019 release date lineup board they presented to the audience included both New Mutants and Dark Phoenix.
Considering the event is for exhibitors that seemingly confirms that New Mutants will not be coming to a streaming service as previously speculated by some. Also, Disney’s Bob Iger reiterated that more Deadpool is coming. Despite Alisha’s comment here, Ryan Reynolds has yet to officially re-sign as Deadpool.
Alan Horn: "You'll be seeing more of Deadpool in the years to come." Disney clearly has plans to keep @VancityReynolds around for the long-term.

They also showed a sizzle-reel that included Wolverine, Planet of The Apes, Kingsman, Predator, Die Hard, and Alien.
Alien and Planet of the Apes sound like they’re still in play at Disney, as they were highlighted onscreen at CinemaCon as franchises they are actively continuing to develop.

Disney just included Deadpool, Wolverine, and Kingsman in an opening sizzle reel. Wolverine turned around and we heard a Repulsor sound. Full inclusion of Fox movies in the reel. #CinemaCon

It’ll be interesting to hear future plans for the Fox franchises but it sounds like Disney is committed to keeping them going as films as the sizzle-reel would suggest.
