A new behind-the-scenes photo from Fox’s X-Men spin-off The New Mutants has surfaced online, showing Anya Taylor-Joy with Magik’s soul armor from the comics.
The fate of Fox’s X-Men spin-off The New Mutants is currently unclear. Initially scheduled to hit theaters in April 2018, The New Mutants has been pushed back three times as the project is set to undergo significant reshoots in order to make it a full-fledged horror flick. The New Mutants is expected to finally arrive in theaters in the spring of 2020 although Disney, which acquired 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets including the rights to the X-Men franchise after the project was shot, is reportedly unimpressed with its current state.
While it may be a while before we see anything official from The New Mutants, a new behind-the-scenes photo gives fans a fresh look at Anya Taylor-Joy’s Magik, including what appears to be her metal arm. You can check out the photo featuring Anya Taylor-Joy’s Magik below.
