The last New Mutants trailer dropped on October 13, 2017, but the film was delayed numerous times. However, our sources have revealed that the new trailer will drop on January 6 2020.
This report follows the vague news that the new footage would be unveiled in ‘January,’ but now we have confirmation from our sources that it will be very early in the month on the 6th.
New Mutants’ future under Disney was uncertain following their buyout of Fox. Many presumed that the horror-themed adaptation would be dropped onto Disney+ rather than receiving a theatrical release.
However, some fans speculate that the delays are happening so that Marvel Studios may incorporate New Mutants into the MCU – this may be what Kevin Feige was referring to when he said ‘mutants’ at San Diego Comic-Con.
Nonetheless, all of that is simply speculation. There were also reports that Fox delayed the film as to prevent it from competing with the then release of Deadpool 2 but that was back on April 13 2018.
Following this delay, New Mutants underwent reshoots which were to add a new character whilst also adding more horror elements to the final cut. Apparently, the film was delayed again to avoid competing with Dark Phoenix.
The cast doesn’t know what’s happening, the director has been oddly quiet and the producer hopes that a theatrical release will finally happen and so it’s safe to say that the current state of New Mutants is a fairly muddled mess. Hopefully, the trailer will clear the air.
If this truly is still in-line with the Fox X-Men canon, then it could be the last of the Fox films, perhaps giving a better-received send-off than Dark Phoenix, unless Deadpool 3 is still in the Fox universe.
