Report: ‘The New Mutants’ delayed yet again

Things are looking bleak for this X-Men spinoff film. A new report from iHorror suggests that The New Mutants has been delayed once again. The film has been removed from its August release date for another undetermined date. This marks the third time the film has been delayed from its original release date of April 2018.

The movie was originally delayed due to script re-writes and reshoots to add a new character to the plot. Those reshoots have yet to take place and with no information on them, many are wondering if the movie will be released in theaters at all. Some reports suggest the movie will be released on a streaming service, like Hulu or Disney+ after launch.

Fox cancels X-Men series ‘The Gifted’

Fox has officially axed the live action X-Men series The Gifted after two seasons. The cancellation comes over a month after the premiere of the season 2 finale, which is now the final episode of the series. The news shouldn’t be a surprise since the series didn’t pull in strong numbers. Season 2 averaged less than 2 million viewers per episode, with average ratings below .6%, a 40% decrease from its first season average. The recent acquisition by Disney also lessen its chances at renewal.

Fox’s The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Sean Teale as Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont as Polaris/Lorna Dane, Blair Redford as Thunderbird/John Proudstar, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker, Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker and Skyler Samuels as the Frost sisters.
