Rumor: New Mutants Push Back or Headed for Hulu
Last would have been a great year for X-Men movies… Well kinda. We were hoping to get Dark Phoenix as well as New Mutants but that was kinda brushed aside because of the merger. But now things are moving for X-Men Dark Phoenix but that can’t be said for New Mutants.
According to rumors, the New Mutants movie directed by Josh Boone was slated for February 22nd release date in the US but could be pushed back to August 2019 because of problems between Boone and 20th Century Fox for the final cut.
And it gets worse.
The rumor that was shared on twitter by Scott Bechtel of Merc with a Podcast is that if things don’t get ironed out, the New Mutants movie could be released on Hulu instead.
If the rumor pushes through the Hulu release will be dated October. A lot later than the intended release date.
The rumor also called the project a “dead on arrival” film which kinda hurts considering it had a fresh take on mutants, putting them in a horror movie instead.
Lets see what happens till then. Hopefully we get both a good cut of the movie and a better release date. Honestly, the February 22nd release date won’t work anymore here too because that would be in a few weeks and marketing hasn’t even moved for the title.
