In this awesome new art you’ll see New Mutants characters (originally intended to be part of the now-defunct Fox X-Men universe) Magik (Glass’ Anya Taylor-Joy), Wolfsbane (GoT’s Maisie Williams), Cannonball (Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton), Sunspot (The Stand’s Henry Zaga), and Mirage (The Originals’ Blu Hunt).
The New Mutants not only represents the last gasp of Fox’s X-Men shared universe, but it also tonally stands apart from the rest of the franchise as a horror movie, with no costumes or real supervillains. The poster itself gives off a darker, edgier vibe as well, with the heroes’ skulls being revealed inside the title font.
If you’d like a deeper dive into this mutant team, the Soulsword, and antagonist the Demon Bear, then check out our exploration of this darker, grimmer X-Men film.
A few weeks back, the Disney website incorrectly called The New Mutants a “seriously electrifying new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe” – which, of course, it is not. It’s not part of the MCU, though it is a new Fox Marvel movie to be released since Disney’s acquisition of the studio.
While promoting the new trailer’s release, director Josh Boone confirmed that this was the original version of the movie that he shot for Fox, despite the Disney acquisition.
