So the movie that most thought would never see the light of day, has suddenly shown signs of life!
After the acquisition of Fox by Disney, The New Mutants seemed almost destined for the scrap heap. It had been rumored to be plagued with no shortage of trouble. The former leaders at the previously independent Fox owned 20th Century Fox, kept pushing the film’s release date further and further back. This of course fueled speculation that it must have been a terrible train wreck of a film. For a film that was originally supposed to release in April 2018, for it to never even be on the 2019 schedule was pretty grim outlook, given that Fox was about to change hands. I mean it was subject to supposed reshoots, then came the rumors that Disney was unimpressed with it, going to ship it to Disney+, then to Hulu and no one could tell what the hell was going on!
Yet here we are in 2020, and the 2nd trailer is here! Not only that, but a release date too: April 3rd 2020; 10 days shy of its release date from 2 years ago! Better late than never eh?
But WHAT A TRAILER! I’m not sure what I expected but this wasn’t it! This looks cool! Keeping up with the horror vibe of the classic Chris Claremont ‘The Demon Bear‘ story line seems to give us the most unique take on Marvel’s Merry Mutants yet. Early money is on Illyana Rasputin (Anya Joy Taylor) becoming the breakout star of the film based on this trailer, because she looks all kinds of awesome.
