The New Mutants Movie | Marvel Fans thought it would never be released
Many thought the film will never see the light of day.
The New Mutants movie saw the release of a new trailer a couple of days ago and it comes almost two years after the first teaser. The Josh Boone film that also stars Game of Throne’s Arya Stark(Maisie Williams) was delayed for several reasons. Some Marvel fans thought that the film about young X-Men will never see the light of day. It now has an April 2020 release date.
Why was The New Mutants movie delayed?
The New Mutants movie’s first trailer was released back in October 2017 and since then fans have been speculating its future. The two-year silence gave birth to different ideas and one of them had to do with the film’s cancellation.
“The film is not going to hit the big screen ever”. That is what many Marvel fans started thinking. Emily Murray (UK based film journalist) also shares the concerns regarding The New Mutants movie.
I think some fans probably thought they might not see the film, especially on the big screen. I personally thought it might end up on Disney+ with all the constant delays, but it would have been a lot of money to throw down the drain if it didn’t get released at all.
She also adds that when the first trailer of The New Mutants was released people naturally wanted to know more about it but the silence killed the buzz.
It’s been two years since the first New Mutants trailer and you have anticipation when you release a trailer. But if there’s nothing more for two years, of course, excitement’s going to dampen.
The New Mutants movie was troubled with constant reshoots and that resulted in its delay. According to some reports, the Josh Boone movie wasn’t scary enough for Fox bosses. Reshoots were done to add more scares to the Sci-Fi/horror flick.
X-Men screenwriter Simon Kinberg was seen saying this back about The New Mutants back in 2019.
We’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film. Part of it was figuring out what the reshoots were gonna be, the pick-ups, and the other part of it was getting that cast back together.
What is this Young X-Men movie about?
The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams (GOT), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) and Anna Taylor-Joy (The Witch). The story revolves around five young mutants who are trapped in a secret facility. The young superheroes discover their hidden powers as they attempt to escape from the facility.
