There’s been a lot of speculation centered around New Mutants and whether or not it will be released. The film was supposed to release way back in April of 2018; however, it has been pushed back several times, officially landing on April 3, 2020. The Fox/Disney merger had a bit to do with the delay but reports have said that Fox wasn’t happy with the end result. Josh Boone planned reshoots in September 2018 to make the film more “scarier” but nothing has seemed to come out since.
Over the last month, New Mutants began getting more attention and offered a new trailer, which would be released after the New Year. The film will indeed be released under the Disney banner; however, no word on if it will lead to an MCU X-Men or if it will be a one-off film.
Director Josh Boone has confirmed over Instagram that the new trailer will be released next week, January 6th.
All we can hope now is that they fixed their problems, got everyone on the same page, and geared up to put out a good film. No word on if Disney stepped in to the production.
