There may be big trouble in the ever-expanding Marvel multiverse.
One of the most hotly anticipated horror movies of 2018 is The New Mutants, a spinoff of Marvel’s X-Men series directed by Josh Boone. Though superhero flicks are feeling slightly passé, this one promises to be more of a horror movie than your typical comic-book adaptation. Trailers set in an asylum have been fantastic, sporting a definite Dream Warriors vibe.

Today, however, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that The New Mutants, slated for release this April, has been delayed for almost an entire year! Though IMDB does not yet reflect any change, the trusted resource (BD) claims the new release date for the film is February 22, 2019. I’m hard-pressed to think of another single film delay that’s been this significant.
We’ll keep you posted as the situation developed. In the meantime, peep the trailer and synopsis for The New Mutants, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, and Maisie Williams.
Official Synopsis: Magik, Wolfsbane and other teenage mutants try to come to grips with their superpowers while staying at a secret facility.
