Hey, remember New Mutants is getting a movie? Yes, I know you've probably utterly forgotten the comic would be getting a movie adaptation from Fox, that would deal with the younger students at the Xavier Institute involving Magik, Wolfbane, Cannonballs (quiet I know his real name. Just that I like the way Deadpool called him better), Sunspot, and Mirage. Here let me remind you with this trailer we got for the movie back on October 13, 2017 (yes it's been TWO YEARS):
So yeah, the movie was going for a more supernatural and horror theme. Wait-- what the hell? Antonio Banderas is credited in this movie?! WHAT THE HELL?! When the hell did that happen?! WHEN?! Seriously, I think the stuff going on around this movie is scary enough!
So. A few weeks ago, podcaster Scott Bechtel (co-host of Merc with a Podcast) tweeted this out about the movie.
Just heard a whisper through the grapevine. #newmutants will be delayed again. Fox & Boone are really struggling coming to terms on a comprehensible and finish product. They're looking to release it in early November. But...— Scott Bechtel (@ZOMBIEHIGHX23) January 11, 2019
Fox is still toying with a Hulu release in October for #newmutants. They're trying to decide which method would have a more returnable value for an otherwise dead on arrival film.— Scott Bechtel (@ZOMBIEHIGHX23) January 11, 2019
I come bearing news again regarding #newmutants Had to wait a week on this but I finally got word it's true. New Mutants will not be set in the in the same universe as the other X-Men films (DoFP, Deadpool, Dark Phoenix). The movie is on it's own now (like Legion and Gifted)— Scott Bechtel (@ZOMBIEHIGHX23) January 12, 2019
Prior version had ties, but what Fox is going with is almost being scrubbed clean. It was so bad how much the film was being distant from the other films they almost cut out the word "mutant" in film despite it being in the title. #newmutants— Scott Bechtel (@ZOMBIEHIGHX23) January 12, 2019
Actually my source is close to the project. I just picked that gif cause it's funny.— Scott Bechtel (@ZOMBIEHIGHX23) January 12, 2019
With a response time that puts me to shame, the internet has been slowly posting articles on this and well, here we are now with me posting an article on this. Of course, this is a podcaster that this entirely hinges on with absolutely no concrete information other than his word. But then again, given how hampered this movie has become. This just seems natural unnatural for such a fate to befall this film.
And the fact that suddenly you now remember there's an actual movie about the New Mutants that has Antonio Banderas in the movie for some reason. Seriously, who the heck will Antonio Banderas play? If he's voicing the Demon Bear that will be the most sensuous exotic sounding demonic bear ever put to film. ... I want to see this.
New Mutants will won't ever arrive in Hulu theaters April 2018 February 22nd August 2nd, 2019.
