THE NEW MUTANTS panel is moderated by Ira Madison III and brought to everyone via IGN.
Ira introduces first director Josh Boone and then the rest of the cast Maisie Williams, Anna Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt. The cast was first introduced to their characters in emoji form which can be activated via twitter using hashtags.
They are later joined by Bill Sienkiewicz, Eisner award winning artist who was responsible for the art of the characters which we have found out is heavily referenced throughout the movie. He thanks Josh Boone and the cast for their creativity.
When asked by ira about the inspiration for the film and the curse of the Demon Bear, Josh Boone said that he had finished making THE FAULT IN THEIR STARS and always loved the demon bear run in the new mutants. He had been a fan and it stuck out. He talks about how he used to sit with a stack and reading them back in his apartment in LA knowing one day he would make it.
Maisie Williams says she is in love with the fan base from the superhero roles when asked about coming from one massive franchise fan base to another.
Anna Taylor-Joy was asked about excelling at playing misunderstood characters how was it being a more domineering character and how fun was it doing the action scenes. “Yeah big time. Magik was the first character i had that stomped into a room I’ve never experienced that.”
Fans along with contests to enter to win amazing posters were treated to the AMAZING opening scene of the film itself.

This movie honestly feels as if it is being tortured when it comes to a theatrical release. THE NEW MUTANTS has once again a new release date of August 28, 2020 as announced by 20th Century Studios today.
The film which was shot back in 2017 was originally shot in 2017 was supoosed to first be released April 13, 2018, before being pushed back 10 months to Feb. 22, 2019, and later moved to Aug. 2, 2019. From there then it was supposed to release on April 3 of this year (2020) but of course COVID-19 changed that.
The Josh Boone directed film was originally set to undergo reshoots but was unable to due to Maisie Williams, GAME OF THRONES shooting schedule. There also were rumors of Jon Hamm being cast as Mr. Sinister but his role was replaced by Benecio Del Toro.
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.
According to the image On January 6th, 2020 at 6AM (more than likely Pacific time) will be getting a new and final trailer for the film. The official Twitter bio also reflects that the movie will arrive on April 3rd of the this year in theaters.
Check out the first original trailer from back in 2017 and stay tuned for updates on the film.
THE NEW MUTANTS Anya Taylor-Joy (SPLIT, GLASS), Maisie Williams (GAME OF THRONES), Charlie Heaton (STRANGER THINGS), and Alice Braga (ELYSIUM) star in the film.

After Disney blamed its third quarter loss on its 20th Century Fox acquisitions including DARK PHOENIX many found themselves wondering if THE NEW MUTANTS which itself has gone through a number of reshoots, actually be released to the public. We now may have our answer.
According to a report from Variety, Disney is highly unimpressed with John Boone’s The New Mutants, and believes it has “limited box office potential” (did they not see the aforementioned DARK PHOENIX).The film is currently set for an April 2020 theatrical release, but, as far as we know, still requires some reshoots. If this is indeed true then do not expect the mouse to enthusiastically shell out any money into having this happen.
As far as the merc with a mouth, goes Disney is still said to be “grappling” with how to integrate DEADPOOL into the MCU, and is trying to find a way for the character to “move seamlessly between AVENGERS spinoffs and bloody, profane stand-alone adventures.”
Now if you want a quick summation of what this may mean, it may be when it comes to assembling with the Avengers, Wade Wilson would be a little more reserved but when it comes to his own solo films its “No F’s Given”.
Recently Disney released their slate of films and THE NEW MUTANTS was once again pushed back until 2020. Many of us were under the belief that the film that was shot would be that which would be released because of the issue of getting the reshoots done.
Well now it seems as if those reshoots will happen and producer Simon Kinberg has given an update of sorts.
“What’s happening is we’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film and it has a new release date from Disney. That’s really it,” he said when asked for an update. “Part of it was figuring out what the reshoots were gonna be, the pick-ups, and the other part of it was getting that cast back together He goes on to say“For all of these movies, Marvel’s really brilliant at scheduling pick-ups into their budget and schedule so it’s all prepared, and we have never been that smart,” he added, seemingly confirming that the Marvel Studios team is now spearheading the creative side of things. “For us, we’re always scrambling to get these actors back together so they’re all in the same place at the same time.”
What do you all think of this? Are you still excited for the film.
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.
Most Notably this distinction goes to Fox’s THE NEW MUTANTS. The horror mutant which was originally believed to be hitting theaters sometime this year will now arrive on April 3rd, 2020. The film which had been pushed back several times and experienced delays due to reshoots had many wondering if it would ever see the light of day. Now it will indeed be seen in movie theaters or either the Disney plus streaming platform or Hulu.
Also on the schedule are many Untitled Marvel projects. Post the events of Avengers Endgame many new stories are abroad and waiting to be told. There of course are films in which we know are either in production or development from Marvel Studios. These include a solo BLACK WIDOW film starring Scarlett Johannson, THE ETERNALS with Angelina Jolie, SHANG-CHI, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 3. Other films that have been mentioned before were a BLACK PANTHER sequel and a DOCTOR STRANGE sequel.
Here are the list of slated dates so let your mind flow trying to places the films in their potential release dates.

Unfortunately it is becoming more and more common that we are hearing this but just a couple of days after releasing it’s trailer and poster letting people know to expect the latest installment in the current X-Men Universe, Dark Phoenix on February 14 of next year. Fox has just announced that the film has now been pushed back until June on 2019.
The new X-Men movie will drop on June 7, 2019. Now to compete with summer movie season. This is two months before the other mutant based feature The New Mutants is slated for August 2, 2019.
It’s going to be an interesting set of events with Fox also given the recent developments on Gambit of the basis of the film even still without a director.
Do you think that it is solely to place the film in summer blockbuster season or could reactions to the trailer play a factor?
