      X-Men Spinoff New Mutants Reportedly Being Made Scarier Fox has officially delayed the X-Men spinoff New Mutants to 2019, and it’s apparently because the movie is being made scarier. Cowriter and director Josh Boone described New Mutants as being a “full-fledged horror movie” before he began filming the young mutants adventure last summer. Fox Studio head Stacey Snider later described the X-Men spinoff as being akin to “a haunted-house movie”, where the archetypical hormonal teenagers are instead a bunch of mutants inexperienced at using their powers and trapped in a sinister institution.The New Mutants marketing has very much positioned the film as being a horror movie (its X-Men connections aside), complete with creepy visuals and Nightmare on Elm Street-inspired imagery of bodies clawing at the protagonists through the walls of their “prison”. Boone’s film is believed to be drawing heavy inspiration from New Mutants comic book creators Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod’s Demon Bear Saga, which revolves around a wicked entity that exists only in the mind of the powerful New Mutants team member Danielle Moonstar aka. Mirage (played by Blu Hunt in Boone’s movie). Apparently though, the current version of the film isn’t quite spooky enough for Fox’s tastes, despite all that.Related: New Mutants, Deadpool 2 & Gambit Get New Release DatesA source for The Wrap is reporting that New Mutants was delayed from its original April 2018 release date to February 2019 in part because the film “isn’t scary enough” in its current form. Tracking Board is reporting something similar, namely that “word on the street” is that New Mutants did well in test screenings but not great, and Fox wants to add more scares in order to make the film even more of a full-blown horror offering.2017 was a strong year for horror both critically and commercially, with movies ranging from Jordan Peele’s awards season contender Get Out to Andrés Muschietti’s Stephen King adaptation IT, and even M. Night Shyamalan’s backdoor Unbreakable sequel Split both pleasing critics and doing big business at the global box office. Tracking Board mentions the success of Get Out and IT specifically as having motivated Fox to further tap into the current demand for horror entertainment, by upping the scare factor in New Mutants even more.The horror genre has gotten off to a good start at the box office this year, with Insidious: The Last Key performing above expectations commercially. There are lots of buzzed about horror movies arriving later in 2018 too, ranging from The Conjuring spinoff The Nun to David Gordon Green’s as-yet untitled Halloween franchise sequel/reboot. Seeing as most of these films are expected to play well with audiences and keep the horror trend going strong, there is all the more reason for Fox to want to step up its game with New Mutants.X-Men spinoffs Deadpool and Logan arguably succeeded in no small part because they went the whole nine yards, when it came to combining the world of mutants with different genre elements (raunchy action/comedy and gritty character drama, respectively). In that regard, the idea of New Mutants delving further into the world of horror sounds all the more promising. Other possible factors contributing to the movie’s ten month delay include New Mutants undergoing story revisions to better adjust it for the post-Disney/Fox purchase era of X-Men, but that’s purely speculation at the juncture.Source: The Wrap, Tracking Board

      New Mutants Star Confirms New Character is Being Added




      As Josh Boone’s New Mutants heads for reshoots, one of the movie’s leading stars confirms that the superhero horror film is definitely adding a new character.
      After Maisie Williams downplayed rumors that the X-Men spinoff is undergoing significant changes now that its release date has shifted back a year, it was reported that another player was being added to the titular mutant team as part of the reshoots. It’s not clear if New Mutants is being made “scarier” too, as was previously rumored, but if so then it could have something to do with whoever the mystery new character addition is.


      The cast have been relatively quiet on the delays, but Anya Taylor-Joy has spoken to The Playlist about her frustration over the movie’s release and inadvertently confirmed someone new is set to join New Mutants:


      I do think that there is a great responsibility to make sure the movie is done right and that we deliver the fans something that they can all feel happy about and excited about. So, I don’t think it being delayed is a bad thing because it’s definitely more important to make sure that we get it right than rushing to make a date. So, hopefully, all of these reshoots and adding of the new character that will give the fans an altogether satisfactory, wonderful product.”


      The roster of teen mutants is already reasonably stocked, but the 21-year-old unfortunately doesn’t reveal whether anyone notable from the comics will be suiting up alongside herself, Williams, and other stars like Charlie Heaton and Henry Zaga. While the new addition could simply be a minor role, the hype surrounding it suggest that it could be someone major.


      While the cast is already made up of notable New Mutants members including Wolfsbane, Magik, and Cannonball, fan favorites like Warpath and Boom-Boom are noticeably absent. Some are already guessing that the technological Warlock could be the mysterious new character, but it looks like Boone and co. are keeping their cards close to their chest at this point. There are also those holding out hope for either Patrick Stewart or James McAvoy returning to their iconic role as Charles Xavier, or even casting someone new as the Prof to help bridge the gap between the Foxverse and the MCU. Boone has already teased that he would like to add Karma and Warpath in a possible sequel, but with the Fox-Disney merger looming, that dream might never come true.
      Considering that fans would be just weeks away from New Mutants‘ original release, it isn’t hard to share Taylor-Joy’s sentiments. However, if they’re adding another piece of X-Men lore pulled straight from the comics, then surely the delay is a good thing. Adapting Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz’s acclaimed ‘Demon Bear Saga’, there is plenty for Boone to work with, but it is a case of wait and see whether New Mutants can live up to its own hype or will simply be remembered as a lackluster X-Men movie akin to Origins: Wolverine. Whatever happens, New Mutants promises to push the envelope with a genre-defining move into a new territory for comic book films.

      New Mutants Will Be ‘Full-Fledged’ Horror Movie



      The New Mutants star Charlie Heaton says the movie’s reshoots will help to shape it into a full-fledged horror film set in the X-Men universe. Fox has been having issues with their X-Men franchise of late. With plans to kickoff brand-new franchises with little known characters and Disney’s Fox deal expected to be finalized by 2019, it’s unclear what shape the X-Men property will take over the next few years. Even the series’ 2018 slate changed recently, with both New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix being delayed to 2019.
      Now, both movies are undergoing reshoots and The New Mutants seems to be changing its entire tone. It has been reported that IT‘s success helped inspire New Mutants‘ reshoots, as Fox now wants to rework the film into being more of a full-blown horror movie – something that it wasn’t before, despite what its teaser trailer suggested. As a result, New Mutants has been pushed back nearly a year and a half, in order to allow for the time needed to properly revamp the film.


      Speaking with EW, The New Mutants star Charlie Heaton (who plays Cannonball in the film) offered his assurances that the reshoots will result in a movie unlike any comic book adaptation before it:
      “It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants. It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying too much — I really don’t want to give away too much what it’s about, it’s very under wraps — but it is, in terms of anything we’ve seen in the X-Men world, it definitely is a horror film. It’s scarier than anything we’ve seen in that genre.”


      Heaton is hardly new to the horror and thriller genres. He made his name playing Jonathan in Stranger Things and can currently be seen in the film Marrowbone alongside his New Mutants costar Anya Taylor-Joy. So while The New Mutants was originally closer to The Shining, channeling IT could just prove the perfect match for the source material and its actors.
      Beyond the reshoots and the change in tone, it’s been revealed that Jon Hamm almost played Mister Sinister in The New Mutants as part of a post-credits scene that would have set up the villain for future films. While Fox would no doubt like New Mutants to become a franchise, the first installment’s rocky production has put its success into question. Not only that, it’s unknown if Marvel Studios will continue the series as-is once they regain the X-Men film rights. If nothing else though, 2019 will at least give fans the first X-Men horror film when The New Mutants arrives.

      New Mutants' Future Up To Disney, Streaming Release Still A Possibility




      Disney will now decide The New Mutants' fate, with the troubled film possibly heading for a streaming release. The Fox era of X-Men films is almost officially done. After over a year, Disney and Fox have closed the deal that will shakeup Hollywood and see all of Fox's TV and film assets be brought under the Mouse House's control. There are many implications of the deal, but the one area that has generated the most discussion is the expected reboot of the X-Men and Fantastic Four to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
      Before that day comes, Disney now has the June release of Dark Phoenix to prepare for, which will be the end of the main franchise. However, they also have Josh Boone's The New Mutants in the can, but in need of major work. The movie reportedly was going to receive massive reshoots last year that would add a brand new character, increase the horror elements of the film, and possibly overhaul up to 50 percent of the film. It was recently confirmed by producer Simon Kinberg, though, that these reshoots have yet to happen, and now that decision and the future of New Mutants rest in the hands of Disney.


      With the Disney-Fox deal now closed, THR reports that Disney execs will soon decide what to do with The New Mutants after they have a chance to see the current cut of the film. The movie currently has an August theatrical release date, but there's been plenty of rumors about The New Mutants being moved to Disney+ or Hulu. According to THR's report, this is still a possibility and it is unclear whether or not the once-desired reshoots will happen.





      The New Mutants features a great cast of rising stars like Split's Anya Taylor Joy, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams, and Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton, who are set to play Magik, Wolfsbane, and Cannonball respectively. The talent of the stars appeared to be a great match for Boone's horror take, with the previously released trailer for The New Mutants increasing the buzz around the promising low-budget superhero film. Unfortunately, the troubled production and multiple delays for The New Mutants have nearly eliminated any prior excitement for the film.


      Before the reshoots took over New Mutants' narrative, there was a growing belief that the the film could be the next great example of Fox's genre-specific approach to their mutant films. New Mutants was also going to be the
      first film in a trilogy, but will instead likely be an odd finale to Fox's X-Men legacy. If it is going to wind up on a streaming service, Hulu would appear to be the better fit if the horror tone stays intact. With only five months left before the film's current release date, it hopefully won't be too long before Disney reveals how and when The New Mutants can be seen - for those who are still interested (or just curious) to see the final product.

      New Mutants Release Date Pushed To April 2020 By Disney



      Disney's The New Mutants release date is pushed to April 2020. Twentieth Century Fox launched their X-Men movie franchise back in 2000, but it has since expanded greatly to include not only mainline films, but spinoff franchises like the Wolverine trilogy and the Deadpool series. One such spinoff is Josh Boone's The New Mutants, following the titular group of teenage mutants from the Marvel Comics. However, despite The New Mutants trailer debuting in late 2017, the movie has been pushed back a number of times.
      Initially, The New Mutants was delayed so that the filmmakers could film reshoots and, reportedly, make the movie even scarier. The New Mutantsalready had more of a horror bent that any other X-Men movie, but Fox was said to be emboldened by the success of 2017 horror movies to make it even scarier. However, the New Mutants reshoots never happened, due to the deal between Disney and Fox wherein the Mouse House acquired the latter's film and TV assets, including all in-progress X-Men movies like Dark Phoenix andNew Mutants. Now, despite The New Mutants being part of Disney's release slate at CinemaCon 2019, the studio has pushed back the film once again



      Disney revealed their updated release schedule today, announcing that The New Mutants will move from its most recent release date of Aug. 2 to April 3, 2020 - a full eight months later than expected. Currently, no other movies are scheduled for that early April release date. Previously, Warner Bros. slated itsCyborg solo movie for that window, but that film isn't part of the studio's current DC movie schedule. Further, the next Marvel Studios release arrives May 1, and another later in the year on Nov. 6.




      Next year will be the first since 2016 that Disney only releases two Marvel Cinematic Universe films, but with New Mutants now opening in April, the studio will have three Marvel movies total in 2020. New Mutants is the last of Fox's X-Men movies and despite Boone's plans for New Mutants sequels it's unlikely the series will continue. Disney is rebooting the X-Men - with the exception of Deadpool - presumably so Marvel Studios can introduce the mutants into the MCU without worrying about maintaining continuity.


      Unfortunately, that means Dark Phoenix is the final installment of the nearly two decades-old X-Men franchise, and New Mutants is poised to be a franchise non-starter. With so many delays, fans - and even the stars - began to wonder if
      New Mutants would ever release in theaters. There was some speculation Disney would forgo a theatrical release entirely and dump New Mutants on Hulu, but it appears that won't be the case. Fans interested in watching New Mutants at least now know when Disney plans to release it, though it remains to be seen if the reshoots will still take place. Given the delay, New Mutants reshoots seem likely.


      So while The New Mutants is suffering another major release date delay, hopefully it means Disney is dedicated to releasing the best movie possible. Since The New Mutants will be the last of Fox's X-Men movies, hopefully the franchise will go out with a bang.
