The Fox/Disney merger has one other casualty.
The New Mutants are a staple within the Marvel world. The younger counterparts to the X-Men consisted of Cannonball, Sunspot, Magik, Wolfsbane, Warlock, and extra. Many of the members of The New Mutants graduated to grow to be X-Men or Avengers, and the group was even led by Cable for fairly a while. Fox deliberate on bringing the group of younger mutants to the massive display this yr, however the Disney/Fox merger has throw issues right into a state of uncertainty. Dark Phoenix has already been pushed again twice because of the merger, and now it seems that The New Mutants will not even make its technique to theaters.
According to Vanity Fair, the phrase round Hollywood is that The New Mutants will probably be relegated to a streaming service. While that is removed from confirmed, it does not appear unlikely. The movie stars Game of Thrones heroine Maisie Williams and it has been marketed as a superhero horror movie. It would have been the primary of its sort, nevertheless it seems like James Gunn’s Brightburn will now take that prize (Gunn is bringing a horror movie to theaters which is a horror twist on Superman’s origin. Imagine Clark Kent was a villain as a child). Disney plans on launching their very own streaming service late in 2019, and it seems like that’s the place The New Mutants will land.
