Today, the first trailer for the upcoming spinoff of the X-Men franchise, New Mutants, emerged. It takes some of the lesser known (but still incredibly powerful) mutants of the universe and basically puts them in a horror movie! Fun!
Naturally, a lot of people are curious about what this all will be, and there’s plans for this to be the start of a trilogy. Which makes you wonder what’s coming up, as well as how it’ll connect with the X-Men universe proper. Director Josh Boone talked with IGN and noted:
“I can’t … there’s some things I can’t talk about. I can just say it is connected to and a part of the X-Men universe, and will continue to be a part of the X-Men universe and will be a part of that as it opens up in the next movies and all that.”
“Every video complains online about characters that aren’t in it right now,” he explained. “I will say we’re going to introduce new characters in the next movie as well. Characters like Karma and Warlock, and all that will be in future movies.”
We’ll first have to see how the film does when it releases in theaters on April 13th, 2018.
