The New Mutants movie is becoming an old story filled with delays, reshoots, and frustration
A picture is worth a thousand words and the image above I feel sums up how X-Men fans feel right about now. Rumor has it that the New Mutants movie that was was originally scheduled for release on April 13, 2018 is now supposedly to be released on August 2, 2019 and has undergone a lengthy stretch of reshooting that could possibly delay the film yet again and even see it released straight to Hulu.
“a whisper through the grapevine.” is how Scott Bechtel from Merc With A Podcast took to Twitter to share the latest goings on about the film which seems to be that Fox and Boone are struggling to come to terms on a comprehensible finished product. He believes they’re currently planning to push the film back to November, and that Fox is actually considering a Hulu release for what’s otherwise viewed as a “dead on arrival film.” It was speculated the New Mutants reshoots would begin in September 2018, which they have not and Bechtel even goes on to explained that he believes the biggest problem has been getting the cast back together and that Anya Taylor-Joy was apparently particularly frustrated at the amount of time she’d have to put into New Mutants again, understandably.
As the rumor mill keeps spinning about how and when the New Mutants will come to us what little hope seems to be Disney’s pledged that all completed Fox movies will still be released. The Disney/Fox deal should see Disney get the lions share of Fox’s film and TV empire, and is only awaiting final sign-off from international regulators. If everything go as reported, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four film rights will be handed back to Marvel Studios and an old dream of a unified Marvel film universe can see some new hope.
