The Fox/Disney merger has another casualty.
According to Vanity Fair, the word around Hollywood is that The New Mutants will be relegated to a streaming service. While this is far from confirmed, it doesn’t seem unlikely. The film stars Game of Thrones heroine Maisie Williams and it has been advertised as a superhero horror film. It would have been the first of its kind, but it looks like James Gunn’s Brightburn will now take that prize (Gunn is bringing a horror film to theaters which is a horror twist on Superman’s origin. Imagine Clark Kent was a villain as a child). Disney plans on launching their own streaming service late in 2019, and it looks like that is where The New Mutants will land.
