Fox’s long-delayed film The New Mutants is set to have a new trailer drop in January (the first in nearly three years) and according to a source that has seen the trailer, the film has received the “blessings of Marvel.”
Bill Sienkiewicz recently appeared on an episode of Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin’s podcast, Fatman Beyond. During the episode, he mentioned that he has seen the newest trailer for The New Mutants and describes it as a film that looks and feels more like Marvel’s established tone, but not necessarily that it’s tied to the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also brings up how the film’s changed since the Disney/Fox deal was finalized.
You can read what Bill Sienkiewicz said about the newest trailer for The New Mutants down below:
“I don’t know if I’m even allowed to mention any of this, but I will say that the New Mutants film, if you’ve heard anything about it the last couple years… two days ago, I heard from Josh Boone, the director. And he sent me a new trailer. They’ve been working on it, and it is phenomenal. I got chills. It looks like, because of the whole Disney-Fox merger, takeover, whatever … it’s got the blessings of Marvel. And it feels more Marvel in terms of what they’re doing, but also the horror elements of the film are in place.”
Despite speculation that The New Mutants will be re-purposed to fit into the canon of the MCU, it seems highly unlikely given that the film was previously shot before Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox when the previous cinematic iteration of the X-Men were still prominent in the film landscape. Either way, we will finally be getting our first new look at the upcoming film after nearly three years.
The New Mutants features 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.
The film is directed by Josh Boone and produced by Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, and Lauren Shuler Donner, with a screenplay by Boone and Knate Lee. It is also the last X-Men movie produced by 20th Century Fox, as Marvel Studios are working on integrating Mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The New Mutants will be released on April 3, 2020. Stay tuned for the latest news on the movie.
