The New Mutants has been delayed and no, this is not a piece of old news, it is happening again, for the umpteenth time, if rumors are to be believed. We all know that the acquisition of 21st Century Fox has been done and dusted behind the curtains but the official statement regarding the deal is yet to come.
There were reports that we are going to have ‘The New Mutants’ in front of us on April 13, 2018, but then it was delayed to February 22nd. But the disappointment has found its way back as it has been reported again that the date has been pushed to August 2 of this year. And this recently released update regarding this project is now in sort of danger of delayed even more.
Well, the rumors are coming from Scott Bechtel of famous Merc With a Podcast who explained in his comments that Josh Boone, the director of this project is having a lot of difficulties and there are chances that we are going to see this movie releasing on Hulu later in the fall. Some fans are fuming over the decision but some are relaxed with the fact that they have just delayed the movie and did not cancel it. The tweets are down below:
Josh Boone also stated his views about the way they’re going to bring this movie on the screen as there are chances that the movie is going to have a lot of horrible things in it and we all know that there are a lot of statements in regards of this movie being quite close to a horror movie. Boone had said last year,
“We brought it to Fox as a trilogy of films, really all based on that long run by Sienkiewicz, and kind of incorporates some stuff from later issues in the ’80s. These are all going to be horror movies, and they’re all be their own distinct kind of horror movies. This is certainly the ‘rubber-reality’ supernatural horror movie. The next one will be a completely different kind of horror movie. Our take was just going examine the horror genre through comic book movies and make each one its own distinct sort of horror film. Drawing from the big events that we love in the comics.”
We all know that the acquisition of Disney is yet to be announced officially and a lot of things are at stake regarding this because there are chances that Marvel will have full control on these projects and characters. Simon Kinberg talked about the genre of the movie and other things. He said,
“Audiences really embraced the notion of a superhero movie or a comic book movie that was, in its core, a horror film,” Kinberg explained in an interview with IGN.
Also, actress Anya Taylor-Joy who is going to portray the character of Magik in the movie talked about the re-shoots in an interview with Collider and said,
“I think we’re making the movie that we set out to make, in the beginning,” said Taylor-Joy. “That’s what we’re going to end up delivering to people. It feels like the movie we all signed up to do, which is good.”
So, now again, The New Mutants has a new release date and that is August 2, 2019. Do you think we will be able to see this movie in theaters or the rumors of it releasing on Hulu is going to be true soon? Tell us in the comments section down below about your views.
