After Disney blamed its third quarter loss on its 20th Century Fox acquisitions including DARK PHOENIX many found themselves wondering if THE NEW MUTANTS which itself has gone through a number of reshoots, actually be released to the public. We now may have our answer.
According to a report from Variety, Disney is highly unimpressed with John Boone’s The New Mutants, and believes it has “limited box office potential” (did they not see the aforementioned DARK PHOENIX).The film is currently set for an April 2020 theatrical release, but, as far as we know, still requires some reshoots. If this is indeed true then do not expect the mouse to enthusiastically shell out any money into having this happen.
As far as the merc with a mouth, goes Disney is still said to be “grappling” with how to integrate DEADPOOL into the MCU, and is trying to find a way for the character to “move seamlessly between AVENGERS spinoffs and bloody, profane stand-alone adventures.”
Now if you want a quick summation of what this may mean, it may be when it comes to assembling with the Avengers, Wade Wilson would be a little more reserved but when it comes to his own solo films its “No F’s Given”.
Recently Disney released their slate of films and THE NEW MUTANTS was once again pushed back until 2020. Many of us were under the belief that the film that was shot would be that which would be released because of the issue of getting the reshoots done.
Well now it seems as if those reshoots will happen and producer Simon Kinberg has given an update of sorts.
“What’s happening is we’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film and it has a new release date from Disney. That’s really it,” he said when asked for an update. “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 He goes on to say“For all of these movies, Marvel’s really brilliant at scheduling pick-ups into their budget and schedule so it’s all prepared, and we have never been that smart,” he added, seemingly confirming that the Marvel Studios team is now spearheading the creative side of things. “For us, we’re always scrambling to get these actors back together so they’re all in the same place at the same time.”
What do you all think of this? Are you still excited for the film.
Walt Disney has just released an updated slate of its upcoming film releases. this also includes the films obtain through its acquisition of 20th Century Fox films. One of the notable things is the change in some of the release dates for films that were expected to arrive in theaters sooner.
Most Notably this distinction goes to Fox’s THE NEW MUTANTS. The horror mutant which was originally believed to be hitting theaters sometime this year will now arrive on April 3rd, 2020. The film which had been pushed back several times and experienced delays due to reshoots had many wondering if it would ever see the light of day. Now it will indeed be seen in movie theaters or either the Disney plus streaming platform or Hulu.
Also on the schedule are many Untitled Marvel projects. Post the events of Avengers Endgame many new stories are abroad and waiting to be told. There of course are films in which we know are either in production or development from Marvel Studios. These include a solo BLACK WIDOW film starring Scarlett Johannson, THE ETERNALS with Angelina Jolie, SHANG-CHI, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 3. Other films that have been mentioned before were a BLACK PANTHER sequel and a DOCTOR STRANGE sequel.
Here are the list of slated dates so let your mind flow trying to places the films in their potential release dates.

Unfortunately it is becoming more and more common that we are hearing this but just a couple of days after releasing it’s trailer and poster letting people know to expect the latest installment in the current X-Men Universe, Dark Phoenix on February 14 of next year. Fox has just announced that the film has now been pushed back until June on 2019.
The new X-Men movie will drop on June 7, 2019. Now to compete with summer movie season. This is two months before the other mutant based feature The New Mutants is slated for August 2, 2019.
It’s going to be an interesting set of events with Fox also given the recent developments on Gambit of the basis of the film even still without a director.
Do you think that it is solely to place the film in summer blockbuster season or could reactions to the trailer play a factor?
This is according to Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton who plays Cannonball.
Now when The New Mutants was first announced it was somewhat implied that it would take on the horror elements this making it a horror film and even take on the rated R rating. But that was dispelled and then it was said it would take on the rated PG-13 rating. Next came both the push backs and reshoots has delayed the film to February of 2019. However, Heaton gives somewhat of a confirmation that we are a full-fledged horror movie.
“It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants. It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying too much — I really don’t want to give away too much what it’s about, it’s very under wraps — but it is, in terms of anything we’ve seen in the X-Men world, it definitely is a horror film. It’s scarier than anything we’ve seen in that genre.”
This is definitely good news for fans who were looking forward to being scared in theaters. But also we can’t fully be sure this film may actually hit theaters. With the impending finalization of the Fox/Disney deal, this movie may go straight to the Disney streaming site or even straight to DVD/Blu-Ray or digital download.
But let not dwell too much on that. Heaton gives us some insight as to what we can expect from his character Cannonball: “Sam comes from Kentucky, and he’s kind of a working-class boy, and he has the ability to project himself through the sky like a cannonball.”
Ok then. We’re potentially going to see abilities as well on display as we should. Are you still excited for The New Mutants? Give us your thoughts.
Now this may be a good or bad thing but the word around the campfire is that the reason in which 20th Century Fox’s The New Mutants is being delayed again is because supposedly a little over 50% of the movie is having to be re-shot.
The teenage mutant film was already pushed back by 10 months in January, from April 13, 2018 to Feb. 22, 2019, purportedly to ratchet up the horror elements, and to add another character. But NOW from news broke on Tuesday that The New Mutants will move again, Aug. 2, 2019.
Now According to Collider, director JoshBoone delivered a new cut of the film, but Fox executives expressed that they want more additional photography, to make sure that the mutant horror film has its own distinct and unique vibe similar to how both way Deadpool and Logan are. The article goes on to further say more than 50 percent of the film could end up being reshot, which again is to bring a new or multiple characters into the story.
