After a D23 newsletter was released with the movie’s second trailer, the news broke out about The New Mutants.
UPDATE: Disney has removed the sentence describing that The New Mutants is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
The D23 newsletter revealed, “There’s a seriously electrifying new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it comes in the form of the latest from Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment… The New Mutants is 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 friends will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.”
The process for the movie was delayed, originally set to release on April 13, 2018. It seems the delay may be due to Disney and Century Fox trying to figure out how to connect The New Mutants with the MCU.
As of right now, no further information has been given as to what expect from this entry into the MCU. However, Phase 4 for the cinematic universe is looking to expand into new territory, with a focus on unique movies that we haven’t seen within the MCU.
Not to mention that The New Mutants is an original spin-off from the X-Men universe created by Century Fox. Meaning this could open the door for future cameos and appearances from characters already established from the X-Men universe. Fans have also long desired to see an Avengers vs. X-Men adaptation onto the big screen.
