Disney has removed the connection between New Mutants and the MCU from a newsletter released on Friday.
Just yesterday, Disney fans were surprised to see The New Mutants as an addition to the MCU thanks to a D23 newsletter. In the newsletter, Disney explicitly states the the much anticipated The New Mutants was an officially joining the ever-expanding MCU. Apparently that statement was a mistake as it has since by removed by Disney, leaving The New Mutants‘ connection to the MCU in limbo.
This left many in speculation as to what the fate of The New Mutants is. After all, the film was left on the shelf for 2 years and had many rumored reshoots that were supposedly going to the change the tone of the film. Since then, it’s been revealed that the film to be released is the same one that director Josh Boone originally envisioned. The film is to be released by Disney, which means that it could easily be tied into the MCU, but that no longer appears to be the case.
The heads of the MCU are trying their best to integrate the Fox Marvel properties with Disney’s MCU, but it turns out that The New Mutants won’t be the one to signal the amalgamation. The New Mutants still won’t be released for another four months, which means that the heads of the MCU and Disney still have time to figure out if they want the newer, spooky heroes to join the ever-expanding MCU. Only time will tell if The New Mutants will officially be apart of Disney’s MCU or if it’ll suffer the same stand-alone fate as Fox/Disney’s Dark Phoenix.
