Marvel: New Mutants Director Eyes Trilogy
We’re still waiting. And waiting. And… well, you get it. But The New Mutants makes its cinema debut on August 28.
And the film’s director wants more. Two more, in fact.
Somehow, Boone is hopeful that a successful box office run for The New Mutants might convince Disney to let him turn it into a franchise. Boone told SFX Magazine:
“Ultimately, after all this time, I was able to make MY New Mutants film, and I’m am proud of it. What I’m hoping for now is that it will be successful enough so the studio will allow me to complete a trilogy. I’ve got all planned out.”
It’s nice to have dreams, but at this point, I doubt Disney and Marvel Studios will be keen on starting a franchise that has roots in another comic book series that they had no part in crafting. More than likely, Marvel boss Kevin Feige has already figured out how the characters of X-Men and their spin-off comics can be utilized in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that probably won’t jibe with whatever plans Josh Boone has come up with.
Hey, all power to Mr. Boone This seems like a heck of a flick and MickeyBlog.com has spilled plenty of bytes hyping its premiere.
New Mutants In The MCU?
And back in January, I wrote discussing the possibility of The New Mutants joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I mean, there’s gotta be a way to make this happen; to include the best of the old Marvel/Fox universe in the MCU. I mean, what’s the worth of the multiverse if you can’t keep some of the X-Men?
Unfortunately, Anderton doesn’t have high hopes for the new film’s box office.
Honestly, if The New Mutants does come out in August, I can’t see the movie being a big hit. There have been diminishing returns from X-Men movies over the years, and a spin-off with more obscure characters isn’t likely to make a big splash at the box office. Leaning into the horror genre might help raise curiosity, but probably not enough to convince Disney to pick up the baton from 20th Century Fox and kickstart a whole franchise.
