The New Mutants director Josh Boone announced that the film is finished by sharing a brand new look at Demon Bear.

It has been a long and much-publicized road to the release of The New Mutants but the film has finally been completed. Set for release early next month, the X-Men horror film suffered numerous setbacks due to rumors of reshoots and Disney acquiring Fox. Director Josh Boone has been adamant on social media that the version of The New Mutants hitting cinemas next month is his version and his version alone. And as a special treat for fans, Boone recently dropped a never-before-seen image of Demon Bear.

Earlier this week, Josh Boone took to Instagram to share a photo of himself alongside some of the technical crew members behind the latest X-Men film. Behind the crew is a still of Demon Bear, one of the most unique villains to battle The New Mutants and X-Force in the comics. You can check out the still of Demon Bear from The New Mutants director’s Instagram below. Be sure to also read the heartfelt caption Josh Boone posted alongside the Demon Bear tease.


It isn’t the best look at Demon Bear but it’s one that’ll have to suffice as the wait for the final film in the Fox/X-Men saga is far from long. Regardless, this brief glimpse of Demon Bear’s lower face is enough to make our blood boil with terror as we continue to wait for the film’s release.
