With the X-Men franchise and universe constantly expanding, adding in new characters, new films, new parts of the universe that are making the world richer and more well-rounded outside the X-Men themselves. Not too long ago, director Josh Boone posted to his Instagram that the movie has gone into pre-production and now the film is set to begin production in the summer.
New Mutants is set to begin filming on June 4 in Massachusetts, presumably in Boston. Interestingly enough, while the movie is set to officially begin production, there still isn’t very much information about the film that has been released. There is no confirmation about who is going to be a part of New Mutants, with rumors about Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and James McAvoy’s possible involvement are only speculation at this point.
You can check out the production listing below.
Now that production is to officially begin, though, perhaps we’ll be seeing more information about what the general plot of the movie will be and who exactly will be in the cast. It’d be nice to see some returning faces, however, it’d also be wise for new characters to be a part of the ever-growing X-Men universe.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie
So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big-screen as soon as possible.
There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focus on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
