new mutants trilogy

The New Mutants director Josh Boone is nothing if not efficient, beginning production for his X-Men spin-off film earlier this summer, releasing a trailer last week, and now revealing that the horror-inspired superhero movie is the first in a planned trilogy.

In the superhero genre, where films are planned years in advance, this is nothing new. But Boone’s pitch for a New Mutants trilogy revolves less around plot ideas than it does genre ideas — with each New Mutants movie taking around a different horror subgenre. So if you’re not on board with the Nightmare on Elm Street meets Stranger Things supernatural horror of the trailer, don’t worry: you’ll have plenty to look forward to.

Deadpool 2 Release Date

This year, 20th Century Fox has three films set within the X-Men film universe heading into production. There’s the highly anticipated Deadpool 2 following up last year’s runaway R-rated hit, the X-Men spin-off The New Mutants from The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone, and the next installment of the primary mutant franchise, reportedly titled X-Men: Supernova, and likely directed by Simon Kinberg, who is also producing all of them.

Since Simon Kinberg is the common thread between all of these films, it should come as no surprise that he’s in the know regarding the development of each them. The producer is currently making the rounds promoting Logan (which he also produced), he’s been fielding a lot of questions about the future of the X-Men universe. Though he wasn’t able to give any major details away, he did confirm that 20th Century Fox is aiming to have both The New Mutants and Deadpool 2 in theaters in 2018. Read More »
