If you aren’t familiar with The New Mutants you soon will be, because director Josh Boone  The Fault In Our Stars ) has officially announced the start of pre production in the best way possible, with cake.


During the course of its run The New Mutants has spawned two of Marvel’s best characters in Cable and Deadpool. They both appeared late in Vol. 1 of the series which centred around teenage mutants in training. While it is not yet known if both Cable and Deadpool will make an appearance in the film, it is rumoured that James McAvoy will be reprising his role as Professor X, and is slated to be released in the spring of 2018.

What do you think of The New Mutants making their way onto the big screen? Is it a smart move by Fox introducing more X-Men into an already crowded and confusing universe? Or is a bit of fresh blood what the franchise needs to move forward?
