Despite a recent scare over a digital preorder for the film, a theatrical release is still being planned for the upcoming X-Men film, The New Mutants.
The New Mutants is a film that will probably live in film infamy simply over how many times it has been delayed. The X-Men film was originally set to be released in April of 2018. The film was delayed by 20th Century Fox in order for the film to undergo reshoots that never happened. After the Disney acquisition of Fox, the film was set to be released in the spring of 2020. That release date was also delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic along with several other Disney films.
This has led some to believe that the film would possibly be released digitally and more than likely on Disney+. These beliefs were seemingly confirmed when the film became available for digital preorder on Amazon. As it had turned out, this was a glitch in the system as Amazon’s automated system which listed it for a preorder based on the film’s original release date. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, however, Disney still plans on giving the film a theatrical release. When this will happen, however, is currently unknown.
