Marvel fans have taken to social media to poke fun at New Mutants on the day the X-Men film was supposed to be released in theaters.
20th Century Fox’s New Mutants, a darker and relatively more horror-centric entry in the X-Men film series, was originally scheduled to be released in theaters on April 13, 2018, before being delayed until February 22, 2019. A third release date for New Mutants was later scheduled for today, August 2, 2019, before Disney pushed back the date to April 3rd of next year following its acquisition of Fox’s entertainment assets.
Now, X-Men fans have taken to social media to have some fun at the expense of New Mutants, joking about how they can’t wait to watch the film at some point today. In fact, some fans have still received notifications from various sources that mistakenly list New Mutants as a new release today.

I went to my local theater with the #NewMutants poster pulled up on my phone, demanding to see the Thursday night advance showing. They said they didn't know wth I was talking about. I frantically showed them the date, crying. Eventually security had to be called… #NewMutants

‘Spider-Man’ Concept Art Reveals Alternate Suits For Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio
New Spider-Man: Far From Home concept art reveals alternate costume designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.
Marvel fans have been clamoring to see Mysterio in a live-action film ever since the release of Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie. Nearly two decades later, Mysterio finally made his way into a Spider-Man film with the release of Marvel Studios and Sony's Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal portraying the classic Spidey foe.
While the writers incorporated elements of previous Marvel Studios films for the origin of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, this take on the character was largely faithful to the source material, especially in terms of the villain's costume design. However, new concept illustrations reveal alternate designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio suit were considered, some of which are notably different from the comic book outfit with entirely different color schemes.
