The New Mutants has been in works at least since 2017 when the filming took place in Boston from: July to September and should’ve been released in April 2018.

But a lot happened since then: Disney bought FOX, which back then had the license for the X-Men Universe. The film features four members of the original New Mutants group: Cannonball, Mirage, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, with Magik being a member from the second roster.

There is also information that the acquision led to Disney pushing back the premiere date for it not to compete with Deadpool 2 (2018) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019). It is also said that the producers took this opportunity to have parts of the film reshot so that it could be scarier. The inspiration would come from the success of recent horror films such as Get Out (2017) and It (2017).

Release date: April, 3rd.

It looks dark and scary. F*ck yeah, I’m in!


The Gifted canceled

Deadline claims that “there have been no real conversations but there is a chance for The Gifted to find a new home within the Disney family” (Freeform or Hulu).

The second season of the series has just wrapped up and ended in a major cliffhanger, teasing its own ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, and thus is the cancellation a big blow to the series and its fanbase.

One of the main reasons to the decision may be that season two averaged fewer than 2 million viewers and just under a 0.6 rating, dropping 40 percent from its freshman (first season) run. Yet it’s scoring higher on Rotten Tomatoes (85% vs. 74% for Season 1). It may also be that Disney, now owning FOX, wants to change direction for some of its regained Marvel IPs and I am sure there are or will be opportunities to re-see the characters in future.

The Gifted, from writer Matt Nix, focuses on a suburban couple (Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker) whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White also star.

It’ll be fun to see what direction the X-men universe will head to in the final movie by FOX. Surely Marvel must have plans for the franchise, now that the film rights are back home, prolly with both stand- alone iterations aswell as crossovers with MCU’s other superheroes. Technically speaking, the X-Men are not superheroes, they’re mutants. There are various meetings in different forms and under different circumstances involving the two groups in Marvel’s comics.

In this trailer we find out how Jean Grey (played by Game of Thrones- star Sophie Turner) gets her alias – Phoenix.

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

In US Theaters June 7


In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Patrick Stewart is retiring from the X-Men franchise. He says that his role in the new mutand superhero movie – Logan – is the last time he portrays professor Charles Xavier. The actor made the announcement at a SiriusXM Twon Hall where he appeared alongside his costar Hugh Jackman and Logan director and co-writer James Manhold. Hugh Jackman also reconfirmed that Logan is his last appearance as mutant Wolverine.

“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie,” said Stewart. “And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”
