‘The New Mutants’ Reportedly Delayed Again – May Go Straight To HULU

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for Fox’s X-Men franchise – it does. The latest news involves The New Mutants – and following reports that X-Men: Dark Phoenix is an embarrassment – this doesn’t come as a surprise. It basically says The New Mutants is the same, and may not even be released into theaters. Yes, you read that correctly – an X-Men movie may forego a cinematic release.

The rumor comes from Scott Bechtel (co-host of Merc with a Podcast), who writes:

“Just heard a whisper through the grapevine: The New Mutants will be delayed again. Fox and Boone are really struggling coming to terms on a comprehensible and finished product. They’re looking to release it in early November. But Fox is still toying with a Hulu release in October for The New Mutants. They’re trying to decide which method would have a more returnable value for an otherwise dead on arrival film.”

It’s also said that this movie is NOT set in the same Universe as the other X-Men movies:

Yikes. Here’s hoping these movies are better than what’s being suggested – but we’re not so sure that’s the case. Many fans are just waiting this out until the X-Men debut in the MCU – which will happen soon enough.

As of right now, The New Mutants is scheduled for release on August 2nd, 2019.
