As the deal between Disney and 21st Century Fox draws closer to completion, the fate of Fox's pending X-Men films remains unclear. While it looks like Dark Phoenix will bring this incarnation of the X-Men's cinematic adventures to an end in theaters, its not clear when or where The New Mutants will ultimately be released, especially as the film has gone through multiple reshoots.
While fans have been confused about whether the film will be released theatrically or on a streaming service like Hulu, Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays the Russian mutant Magik, made comments that cast even more doubt on the circumstances of the film's release.
"It's coming your war at some point," Taylor-Joy said at a recent event. She was quick to reveal some glimpses of information about Magik too, "My character is sassy as f-ck, and mental and Russian and crazy, and I love her."
The Fox film was originally set to be released on April 13, 2018, but it was later pushed back to February 22, 2019. More recently, it was pushed back to August 2, 2019. As it stands, the film is still set for release in August, however, that can always change should any other issues arise—such as the need for more reshoots.
After all, reshoots were initially expected to begin in late 2018, but had been pushed to February of this year. It's unknown if they're completed, or if the schedule has been pushed yet again.
The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (Atlantis) as Magik, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) as Cannonball, Blu Hunt (The Originals) as Dani Moonstar and Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) as Sunspot. The film is scheduled to be released on Aug. 2, 2019.
