It has been no secret that many people have either flat out given up on the Josh Boone directed mutant horror film, THE NEW MUTANTS or still hope to see what was at one point a highly anticipated film.
Now Boone himself recently said that the film would be released this year and in its original version. That in itself is worth noting because it is widely known that the film underwent massive reshoots after test screenings to supposedly add more horror to the film. Also additional cast members were added to the project such as Antonio Banderas, who replaced Jon Hamm as a villain in a post credit cameo. Also reshoots were put on hold for an extended period of time due to Maisie Williams then filming schedule with GAME OF THRONES.
Well now that bit of mystery has been given some clarity with the final film in the 20th Century Fox X-Men saga has arisen. On twitter the official account of the film recently posted with this image.

Walt Disney has just released an updated slate of its upcoming film releases. this also includes the films obtain through its acquisition of 20th Century Fox films. One of the notable things is the change in some of the release dates for films that were expected to arrive in theaters sooner.

Ladies and gentlemen it is now pretty set and concrete that once taboo word of “mutant” will not be forbidden anymore, as the X-men will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed the X-Men will fall directly under the supervision of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger stated, “It only makes sense. I want tot be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know,” he went on to say, “It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.”
When Iger was asked a question regarding the merger that many people were curious about and thats the inclusion of Deadpool in the Avengers, he said, ““Kevin’s got a lot of ideas, I’m not suggesting that’s one of them. But who knows?”
This news is going to fire up many fans especially as we get closer and closer to Avengers 4. Does this mean we get a special post-credit scene? We shall see.
