If you managed to stay up untill 12:01 on the east coast you were treated to the debut of the first trailer for the newest film in the FoX-Men Cinematic Universe, The New Mutants. I tried, but lost the battle against the Sandman. The film features almost the entire original line-up of the very first New Mutants, except team leader Karma has been switched out for the little sister of Colossus, Magik. Director Josh Boone is basing this horror story inspired trilogy on Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz’s dark arc of New Mutants #18-31 and 35-38 which will include the Demon Bear and take place in the present. The big outlier to me is Mirage, who may be the unwilling source of the haunted assylum.
Staring Maisie Williams as Rhane Siclair/Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, The New Mutants arrives in theatres April 13th, 2018.
