Disney Unimpressed With Fox's 'X-Men' Spin-Off 'New Mutants'

Within Variety's lengthy new article about Disney's disappointment with 20th Century Fox and their slate of movies since the company acquired the venerated Hollywood studio is an item that will be of note to X-Men fans.

Unsubstantiated rumors have suggested Disney may decide to skip New Mutants' theatrical release altogether and put the film on their new Disney+ streaming service - a decision that would make a lot of sense.

Disney is optimistic that handing Fox superhero properties such as "Fantastic Four" and "X-Men" to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will improve the quality of these movies, but bumps must be smoothed over in that transition. The studio is unimpressed with "New Mutants", an "X-Men" spinoff with a haunted-house vibe, and believes it has limited box office potential. These films - most notably Dark Phoenix, Stuber, and The Art of Racing in the Rain - have amounted to one albatross after another for the entertainment megalith, with each release seemingly flopping harder than the previous one.

Based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name, the upcoming X-Men film centers on five young mutants who are just discovering their abilities while being held in a secret facility against their will.

Now scheduled for release on April 3, 2020, New Mutants previously suffered several delays pushing it back nearly two years from its original planned April, 2018 release date. Stay tuned for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.

Directed by Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars), New Mutants stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin / Magik, Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair / Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie / Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa / Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar / Mirage, and Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes. For now that is.
