With Josh Boone’s The New Mutants finally heading to theaters in April, fans have finally got a look at Demon Bear, the X-Men villain plaguing the team.

With the latest trailer for The New Mutants arriving online, a clearer look at the classic X-Men villain Demon Bear has been revealed. When it was revealed that The New Mutants was adapting The Demon Bear Saga for the film, fans were initially concerned as to how he’d look on screen. But the impressive latest trailer for The New Mutants delivers a quick look at what to expect from the villain.

The best shot of the X-Men villain Demon Bear appears right at the end of the trailer as Anya Taylor-Joy’s Magik battles him alongside Lockheed. Lockheed can be seen to the left, blasting the black warped figure. But the shot of Demon Bear proves that director Josh Boone wants to deliver a comic accurate version of the villain, with glowing red eyes and snarling jaws. Demon Bear first appeared back in The New Mutants #18. Take a look at Demon Bear below from The New Mutants trailer.
