20th Century Fox’s The New Mutants is probably stuck in a time loop or something because the last movie set in the studio’s X-Men cinematic universe has now received yet another new release date; 28 August 2020.
This marks the fifth release date for The New Mutants after its original release date over two years ago in early 2018, to its most recent 3 April 2020 release date. The movie was then postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; until now, that is.
It’s unclear if this new release date for The New Mutants (via The Hollywood Reporter) will still hold true by the time we reach August, but perhaps we’ll finally be able to see these young mutants in action.
It stars Anya Taylor-Joy as fan-favourite Russian mutant Illyana Rasputin or Magik, Game Of Thrones’ Maisie Williams as the shapeshifter werewolf Rahne Sinclair or Wolfsbane, Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie or Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa or Sunspot, and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar or Mirage.
This movie will technically be the last of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men movies, now that Disney and Marvel Studios has regained access to the X-Men IP. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
