The release of Josh Boone‘s (The Fault in Our Stars) adaptation of Marvel Comics’ The New Mutants has been delayed by script changes, the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney and the novel coronavirus. But if the new Comic-Con@Home 2020 virtual panel discussion about the movie is to be believed, the last “Mutant-verse” movie from Fox will finally be hitting theaters later this summer. Check out the full Comic-Con@Home 2020 video at the bottom or just watch the following clip to see new footage from The New Mutants.
The New Mutants was directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee.
