The New Mutants is the last of the X-Men movies to be produced by 20th Century Fox to be released, following 2019’s Dark Phoenix. Disney’s purchase of Fox means that the X-Men characters are now able to be used in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and those characters may be recast or disregarded entirely in future movies featuring the X-men. Since the acquisition it has been unclear what this would mean for the unreleased ‘The New Mutants’; directed by Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars); which had already faced numerous difficulties on it’s road to release.
The films is currently scheduled be released in theaters August 28th 2020 however due to Covid19 many theaters remain closed and this release date may be moved or changed to a VOD release.
