‘The New Mutants’ Director Reveals Storyboards Brought To Life

X-Men The New MutantsThe New Mutants is taking a departure from other X-Men movies by putting its focus on the horror genre ahead of the fact that it’s a superhero movie. Now that the trailer is out, director Josh Boone has revealed how he approached filming some of the shots present in the trailer.

Using Instagram, Boone showed off three different storyboards for shots that he would go on to film, and he put them side-by-side with the shots that were seen in the trailer itself:

All things considered, and it’s still hard to imagine that movie is being made by the guy who directed The Fault In Our StarsThe New Mutants certainly looks like it will bring something new to the table, and it seems like a risk worth taking – but whether or not said risk will bear fruit remains to be seen.

New Mutants will arrive on April 13, 2018. The movie is directed by Josh Boone and has a cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin (Magik), Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa (Sunspot), Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie (Cannonball), Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar (Mirage), and Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes.

6 Mutant Characters Who Should Appear On ‘The Gifted’

The Gifted Fox X-MenThe Gifted is Fox’s new attempt at putting the X-Men on the silver screen. While FX’s  Legion was more isolated from the rest of the mutant world, Gifted will take place in a world closer to the comic books. People know what mutants are, and due to their fear of the unknown, mutants are often ostracized and forced to hide underground.

Thematically, the show seems to be about resistance and forging new communities in the face of hatred. The show focuses on one family, but their adventures are bound to cross paths with numerous mutants as they try to build a new life for themselves. To build a proper community on a TV series, the writers need people that the audience will care about and connect with. The show will have a lot of new, original characters for fans to latch onto, but if Fox wants to play in the X-Men world, they might as well use a few established characters.
