Re: X-MEN: First Class sequel (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release) ‘The Hobbit 3′ Scheduled For July 18, 2014 I have to say, this was a real dick movie by Warners. They are a bunch of bullies. What chance does X-men have against the final Hobbit movie and final part of the LOTR saga? Hobbit 3 would have done great ANY TIME of the year! FOX won't want to play chicken by having their movie still be released on the same date. The question now is, where are they now going to move this thing to on the calender?
