The New Mutants Gets Two Creepy New Teasers

The X-Men franchise will soon be wading into horror territory with the release of The New Mutants, and the film’s Twitter account has released two brand new teasers introducing some of the super-powered teenagers who will be featured in the film.

We get a look at Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina/Magik, and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/ Mirage, in the two very creepy new teasers, both of which are embedded below.

The days of the current X-Men film franchise are numbered, because as soon as Disney complete their acquisition of 20th Century Fox (which should last between 12-18 months), they’re likely to reboot the X-Men within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Either that, or they’ll somehow merge the current X-Men franchise into the MCU, although that option seems pretty unlikely. It remains to be seen if or how The New Mutants will be affected by the acquisition, but we probably won’t have to wait long to find out.

Despite the roaring success of both Deadpool and Logan, The New Mutants will be aiming for a PG-13 rating instead of heading into R-rated territory. The film was directed by Stuck in Love’s Josh Boone, and also stars Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, and Alice Braga. It will open in wide release on April 13, 2018.
