The saga of New Mutants has been a long and strange one, and now, according to Collider.com, it sounds like New Mutants will meet its release date for April, and the version of the film that is coming is apparently closer to the vision that director Josh Boone had intended
During production, the studio tried to push Boone out of the horror realm and into more traditional X-Men film tones, and reshoots were completed to bring it back to horror, and that horror version of the film is the one that is on the way.
The X-Men film franchise was at its best when it went the ballsy route, with entries like Deadpool and Logan really showing up to play. I can only hope that New Mutants can continue this tradition. If it doesn’t, who cares. It’s getting rebooted anyway, isn’t it? I just want it to be good, and I like Josh Boone, so I’m here for it.
So what do you think? Is this the right call for New Mutants? Let me know/Drop a comment down below!
