Fox’s newest property using the X-Men franchise officially begins production with some news accompanying it as well.
New Mutants has been on my radar for a while now. I have written at least 4 articles about it and guess what? I’m not stopping anytime soon. It’s truly one of my favorite series and while it begins production today there’s some news out here as well. So the rumor is that actor James McAvoy will not be reprising his role as Professor X. Now it’s a rumor and one I will say must be complete, well words my editor won’t let me use. The other and I was sure of this in the beginning is that we will be getting a CGI Warlock in the film. I mean that was going to be the only way to represent this character as he is techno- organic and is body is almost always in a state of change. Can’t wait to see those Warlock expressions on the big screen.
Lastly this film is not going to be a typical superhero film as it is pulled from the comics where the team battled the Demon Bear who was brought forth from the dreams of Dani Moonstar to kill her. He first appeared in New Mutants #3 so I see this as a kind of fitting first opponent for them to face. New Mutants debuts April 13th, 2018 starring Charlie Heaton/Cannonball, Anya Taylor-Joy/Magik, Maisie Williams/Wolfsbane, Blu Hunt/Dani Moonstar, and Henry Zaga/Sunspot.
