Everything You Need to Know About NEW MUTANTS

After 17 years of X-Men movies, it’s about damn time for some new mutants. Specifically, the New Mutants, Marvel’s early 1980s answer to the Teen Titans. Along with Deadpool 2 and Dark Phoenix, the fan-favorite superhero team is set to make its way to the silver screen in 2018 under the direction of Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), with a bevy of talented stars like Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams, The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton, to name a few.

The film, which will be a horror-tinged film unlike anything else in the X-Men cinematic oeuvre to date, will follow the adventures of a newly minted team of mutant youths training under the auspices of Charles Xavier.

Together, according to early reports, they will have to battle back a fearsome foe, a Demon Bear, which is exactly what it sounds like… if you thought it sounded like a psychically powered entity that feeds and preys on your greatest fears and wants to murder everything that gets in its way.

While that all sounds well and good, many people are wondering: Just what sets the New Mutants apart from the X-Men, anyway? Why should they care? Where did the New Mutants come from? Well, on today’s episode of The Dan Cave, I am going to tell you everything you need to know about Marvel’s New Mutants before you see the movie.
