The New Mutants Movie Details
The New Mutants Trailer

This is a movie that has a scheduled release date of 28 August 2020. This is going to be the thirteenth movie that will join the X men universe. The plot of the movie is centered around the struggle that five mutants have to go through to save themselves and own up to the sins of their pasts. Going in a direction contrary to the popular X men movies this movie is more horror than action. This would be the first movie in this cinematic universe that goes into the horror genre. The cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, and Blu Hunt.

The primary idea of the story is that five new mutants who do not have complete control of their powers are confined in a facility to protect the world from them. The movie was originally supposed to release in 2018 but it faced some issues that led to delays. It was then rescheduled for 2019 and then they had to reschedule it again to 2020. One of the reasons for these delays was that there was some confusion about how much of the horror genre they were going to inculcate into the movie.

Originally intended as a PG 13 movie the changes made later on with the re-shoots made the movie a completely horror based film which would not be suited for the crowd originally intended for the movie. Although the movie now has a set date for release there is still speculation that such a project that has been plagued with issues could be pushed back further. No matter when the movie releases it is sure to delight the fans with a new and refreshing take on the superhero genre.

Untitled Kitty Pryde Movie | Release Date TBA

This is another movie that has only recently gone from being a rumor to an actual X-men upcoming movie. There have been rumors going on for a long time that Deadpool director Tim Miller was going to be working on a standalone movie featuring Kitty Pryde. There were even rumors that Brian Michael Bendis was working on adapting a Kitty Pryde comic into a script for this standalone movie. All of this was actually confirmed by Brain Michael Bendis when he revealed on Twitter that he was actually in the process of creating a script for the standalone movie.

This would no doubt make quite a lot of comic book fans happy. This is because in the past Kitty Pryde only had a minor role in the X men movies with the character being sidelined due to bigger comic book characters being focused on. However, many people have been fans of the Kitty Pryde comics and would have loved to see her have a more significant role in movies.

The movies state currently seems to work well based on the upcoming merger between Fox and Disney. The movie at the current rate should not be ready for filming till after the merger. This makes sure that it does not end up as a project that is scrapped because of the merger. This can also make merging the X men universe with the larger Marvel Comic Universe a real possibility. This is something that fans have eagerly been waiting for. The casting is still in doubt but many speculate that the obvious choice for the lead role would be Ellen Page who has previously played the role in two X men movies.
