This past week, Fox Released a new trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix Movie, which is due to be released this summer in cinemas, which will be after the Disney purchase is complete, but there is also another Marvel movie currently under production by Fox, The New Mutants.
However The New Mutants has suffered major problems, it’s been delayed twice, it was originally going to be released in April 2018, then moved to February 2019, before moving to August 2019.
Yet we haven’t seen anything on this movie since the original teaser trailer was released in October 2017, before the Disney purchase was announced. The movie was due to have reshoots but those haven’t been filmed yet. And those reshoots were apparently needed to reshoot half the film and no reshoots have yet been scheduled.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s possible that The New Mutants could end up released on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ or on Hulu, rather than heading to cinemas.
However personally I don’t think the movie looks “Family Friendly” for Disney+. I could see a New Mutants head to Hulu, as Disney might not want to spend any money on promoting or for reshoots, on a Marvel movie they wouldn’t have made. And it looks like Fox also didn’t want to put any more money into the film.
With the current release date still being scheduled for August, it might just be released to Hulu ahead of Disney+’s Launch. Or simply it might never be released at all.
Do you think The New Mutants should be on Disney+ ?
