What is going on with The New Mutants? This film has been nowhere for what seems like ages, but we’ve recently learnt that it’s coming out in April this year, and we’ve now discovered that it’s going to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The story of The New Mutants is a very interesting one, and the story seems to be culminating in it coming to the cinema and now being part of the MCU, which is just insane.
The film was made by 20th Century Fox, and it should have been part of their X-Men and Deadpool universe, but Disney has now just confirmed that it’s going to be taking place in the MCU.
This report came from a recent D23 newsletter which has since been edited to remove the following bit I’m about to quote.
The newsletter spoke of the film’s second trailer and revealed that the movie would be part of the MCU.
The New Mutants is going to be part of the MCU
There’s a seriously electrifying new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it comes in the form of the latest from Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment… The New Mutants is an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital, where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
I had added a screenshot of the original newsletter below in which you can clearly see what was written.
It looks like Disney might not have wanted people to know that The New Mutants is going to be part of the MCU.
What do you make of this news? Are you excited to find out that The New Mutants is going to be part of the MCU?
