File this under the category I’ll believe it when I see it released, The New Mutants seems to be taking All The Boys Love Mandy Lane approach and just keeps shifting dates around like Pam and Roy’s engagement on The Office. Disney has announced that they’ll release The New Mutants in theaters on April 3, 2020.
In the film, “five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.” It was originally set to be released way back in 2018 so take that information with however you like it. It doesn’t sound good that this will be released at all.
The cast includes Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa a.k.a Sunspot, a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power; Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath also known as “Mirage”; Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on; Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, who uses teleportation; Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball; and Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, who can turn into a wolf.
