The latest sneak peak of “The New Mutants” starring Anya Taylor-Joy is here.
On Thursday, Disney’s 20th Century Studios released a new trailer for the long-anticipated “X-Men” horror spin-off which shows Taylor-Joy in her role as Magik and armed with her glowing supernatural sword.
The film follows five teen mutants who are being held at a secret facility against their will, including “Game of Thrones”‘ Maisie Williams who portrays Rahne, known in the comics as Wolfsbane due to her werewolf shape-shifting abilities. “Another Life” actress Blu Hunt also stars in the movie as Dani who is forced to face her greatest fear through horrific apparitions.
While director Josh Boone finished “The New Mutants” last year, it was pushed back on the studio’s schedule due to Disney-Fox merger.
Some are speculating that the new teaser hints at the possibility of a new release announcement during the upcoming Comic-Con @ Home on July 23.
The Playlist predicts that one of the options could be to release it during the digital Comic-Con as a surprise. Another theory is outlet that the film might go straight to streaming on Disney+ or Hulu.
“And with Disney+ starting to offer some of the ‘X-Men’ films produced by Fox, this would be a good way to keep subscribers happy while the Marvel Studios content continues to be delayed due to the pandemic.”
In the meantime, you can catch the trailer up top and you can also catch the cast reunite for a virtual Comic-Con panel later this month. The movie’s current scheduled release date is August 28.
