Fox's New Mutants movie will likely feature a few familiar faces

03.31.2016

The New Mutants Josh Boone Banner

It's been awhile since we've heard anything about it, but things seem to be moving along quite nicely for Fox's NEW MUTANTS movie. The X-Men spinoff already has a director in the form of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS helmer Josh Boone, who is also co-writing the script, and producer Simon Kinberg recently gave an update on the project during an interview with IGN.

Josh Boone and his writing partner are working on the script. They're doing a really nice job of it, and it's a really cool one, because in many ways, like Deadpool was so different from the mainline X-Men movies, New Mutants… It’s maybe not as different as Deadpool, but it has its own unique, original voice to it. That's the fun for me, working in the X-Men universe, creating these sort of standalone movies that have a different vibe to them. And New Mutants has more of a YA [Young Adult] vibe to it.

As for which characters will appear in THE NEW MUTANTS, Kinberg said, “There's a very deep bench. There's a long, long list of names, and I'll tell you some of the names on that list I don't even know. That's how deep it goes.”

The producer went on to say that there's a good chance that some of the mutants from the previous X-Men flicks will also be featured in the film.

Traditionally, the New Mutants have some characters that cross over from the mainline X-Men movies. As we are going, I would say it's likely that you will see some familiar faces.

Who do you think will make up the roster of the New Mutants in the movie, and which X-Men would you like to see appear in the spinoff?

A release date hasn't been announced yet for THE NEW MUTANTS, but X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

Fox won't play it safe after all

It is rumored that the line up will include Storm, Wolfsbane, Majik,Sunspot, Canonball and Psyche. Alexandra Shipp would play Storm, Massie Williams (from Game of Thrones) would play Wolsbane and Anna Taylor Joy would play Majik with Sunspot, Canonball and Psyche not cast yet. It sounds as though this will be set in the First Class continuity which means that this will probably be set in the 90s (First Class was set in the 60s, Days of Future Past in the 70s and Apocalypse in the 80s).

That would mean that Majik would be older than her brother Colossus in the same way that Havok is older than Cyclops in the movies.

Fox will play it safe

The first New Mutants movie will probably be set around the time of the original X-Men Trilogy and we will get Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Colossus, Ice Man, Pyro, Sunspot, Warpath, Siren, Blink, Canonball, Karma, Wolfsbane, Psyche, Majik and possibly Magma, although she might be redundant now with Sunspot. In the new continuity, Mr. Sinister could have participated in the Weapon X program so he could get genetic material from Wolverine and create X-23. Other villains could be Sabretooth, Lady
The first New Mutants movie will probably be set around the time of the original X-Men Trilogy and we will get Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Colossus, Ice Man, Pyro, Sunspot, Warpath, Siren, Blink, Canonball, Karma, Wolfsbane, Psyche, Majik and possibly Magma, although she might be redundant now with Sunspot. In the new continuity, Mr. Sinister could have participated in the Weapon X program so he could get genetic material from Wolverine and create X-23. Other villains could be Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, Madrox the Multiple Man, the Juggernaut, Arclight and Callisto, although with that level of opposition you would expect the X-Men proper to get involved. They will have to keep the story simple and have the story be about rescuing X-23 from Mr. Sinister. Perhaps he was using Jason Stryker to control X-23 the way Jason Stryker was used to control people in X-Men United. If this movie comes out before the next X-Men movie then they will have to introduce a new Wolverine too. Maybe he can fight Sabretooth, who will also be played by a new actor. James McEvoy would return as Professor Xavier and there would be cameos from other X-Men.

In the sequel we could have Michael Fassbender as Magneto make an effort to work with the X-Men and New Mutants and feeling obviously uncomfortable. The government comes to arrest Magneto and the New Mutants at first want to protect him but Xavier stops them and Magneto reluctantly goes with them. This then leads to Magneto getting put on trial. Mister Sinister will show up to disrupt the trial and Magneto has to choose between taking the opportunity to escape or accepting the verdict of human justice.

The last New Mutants movie would be set in modern day and would have the characters from the first New Mutants movie being played as much older. Some of the members of the New Mutants will have left to join X-Force and they would have new recruits such as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Chamber, Husk, M, Penance, Skin, Synch and Gaia. Obviously the full title would be New Mutants: Generation X. The main plot could be that it is many years after the trial of Magneto and Magneto is being released from prison and this decision is being met with public outrage. The question becomes how best to deal with mankind hating and fearing them and if it would be better to let Magneto stay in jail. One could imagine the Sentinel program being recreated and our heroes have to fight Sentinels. When Sentinels run amok, as they always do, the public decides that having mutants live among them in peace is definitely the lesser of two evils.

Let me guess Mystique will be a prominent character in the first movie to give it a better draw. Not interested.
