The Marvel Cinematic Universe released a trailer for The New Mutants, a series connected to the X-Men that adds elements of horror. The trailer got fans super excited as it was a very different concept compared to other Marvel films. 

The release date for the film was set to be on April 13th, which lands on a Friday! That really would've hyped fans up for the film, but unfortunately, it's been ​pushed back a whole 10 months. Fans of Marvel and horror films are going to have to wait a while longer, but the reason behind the delay might be worth the wait.

Anya Taylor-Joy, who stars in the film, recently confirmed a new character will be added to the lineup! She shared with ​Playlist the confirmation of the delay and her thoughts on it: “I do think that there is a great responsibility to make sure the movie is done right and that we deliver the fans something that they can all feel happy about and excited about."

“So, I don’t think it being delayed is a bad thing because it’s definitely more important to make sure that we get it right than rushing to make a date. So, hopefully, all of these reshoots and adding of the new character that will give the fans an altogether satisfactory, wonderful product," she continued. 

While this is surely exciting, the actress was also upset about the film being pushed back. "Well, the only thing that I could say, without being in trouble, is that it being delayed is disappointing, frustrating in fact."

“Because we were all very excited for it to be released on April 13th, and I don’t mean just disappointing for me, but I’m sure there are a lot of other fans that were looking forward to seeing it," she said.


Although fans will have to wait a little longer, that means that they can anticipate more from the film with the addition of this new character. Also, a rumor surrounding the film says the studio wants The New Mutants to lean towards the horror side more.

This movie will definitely have fans at the edge of their seats! Who else is excited for this one?
