The New Mutants

After years of production delays and questions about its existence, the latest instalment in Marvel Comics franchise The New Mutants is officially set for theatrical release in the USA next month.

The New Mutants is an upcoming American action-horror film in the superhero genre, based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name and distributed by 20th Century Studios.

Fox initially planned to develop the film back in 2015, with the goal of going into production in 2016 and releasing the feature in 2018. But in early 2018 Fox decided to delay the film’s release to February 2019. Fox reportedly didn’t want Deadpool 2 and New Mutants to compete with one another in May. Then, after being delayed again in February 2019, The New Mutants was confirmed to be released on April 3rd, 2020 but due to the pandemic, it was pushed back to August 28th 2020.
