The X-Men spinoff, The New Mutants, which has seemingly been stuck in limbo for a few years now, has finally received a new trailer in the run-up to its release later this year. Check it out below:
“20th Century Fox in association with Marvel Entertainment presents The New Mutants, 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.”
The New Mutants has been described as a horror-thriller as opposed to the typical superhero outing that you’d expect. This will be the final X-Men movie to have begun production before Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, although it is not known whether it will have ties to the older X-Men movies, the MCU or will instead be a solo outing with no ties to either.
