“X-Men: New Mutants” is a 2018 film of release, which should expand the X-Man universe and make it possible to subsequently release at regular intervals other films about superheroes that have not previously been presented to the audience. He has nothing to do with the upcoming X-Men series, produced by Brian Singer. The director of "Suspicious Persons", once marked the beginning of films about superheroes, in particular about X-Men, will be engaged in the creation of a pilot series. There is nothing in common with the exception of the universe, in which, in fact, the actions of both one and the other cinema develop, there is no interaction between them.
The X-Men Series
Rumors about the release of the series about popular superheroes, mutating for one reason or another, go for a very long time. Television has long lured many figures of cinema into their networks.By the way, X-Men there is the place. You don’t need to go too far - here’s a great example: “Shch.I.T. Agents”, released from Avengers, and “Defenders”, a series that united Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. In turn, they are all united Marvel. This company today feels like a fish in water: DC does nothing more than to follow the success of its direct competitor, trying to achieve a similar result. Yes, that's all to no avail! In a sense, the stories they get are other and fascinating, but something they do not attract the audience like marvelian heroes.
New film about X-Mans
Let's go back to the X-Men. At the moment, the producers responsible for the superheroes from the X-Man universe, are preparing both the film and the series. We will continue to talk about the film.
It is known that he designs the project to the delight of fans of Josh Boone. He shot back in 2012 with the tape "Stuck in Love", but gained popularity only two years later, when the film adaptation of John Green's "Blame for the Stars" came out. As you can see, in the youth cinema genre he is a master. That is why he was called to the project, which tells how mutants at a very young age are struggling with an environment that, to put it mildly, does not accept them.
Also, the public already know the names of the screenwriters: they will be Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, both, as well as the director of the future blockbuster, took part in the work on the aforementioned film “Guilty Stars”. Also joined by Nate Gwaltney.
The filming of the film itself began in March of this year.
If you delve into the essence, it turns out that the upcoming picture will be based on the comic strip series of the same name. There, with which the audience is already well acquainted with other kinokomiksami series, we will focus on students of the school of Professor X. There were many rumors about the presence in the film of James McAvoy in the role of Charles Xavier, but the hopes of the fans will not be justified. Professor Cecilia Reyes will take the place of the professor, and it will be played by American actress Rosario Dawson, who is known for her paintings “City of Sins”, “Men in Black 2” and many others.
The story of the "New Mutants"
According to Josh Boone himself, the blockbuster will be as different from the previous X-Men as possible: a mix from the horror film and youth drama awaits us, which is very intriguing.
Boone assures that now there will be no supervillains and incredible costumes.
The details of the storyline have not yet been revealed to us, but we were able to find out the overall picture: five mutants of a young age are locked up in a unit of special secrecy by force.They will have to face the destructive properties of their abilities, as always to save the world and of course themselves.

The overall style of the film will reflect the youth films of the eighties. The main idea of the producer was to implement a new movie about X-Men in the form of a trilogy, when each of the parts refers to the previous one. Parts of various comic strips were assembled and a general project was drafted. The main antigonist will be the giant Demon Bear, drawing power from the negative emotions of people and possessing tremendous power.
One of the central characters will be a werewolf who will play Macy Williams, known for the bright role of Arya Stark in the acclaimed TV series "Game of Thrones."
Also, the team of mutants will be complemented by the following heroes:
- Magic, the sister of the Colossus, previously represented in the Marvel Universe, a sorceress with the ability to teleport. Will play her Anya Taylor-Joy, who recently occupied the main role of the film "Split";
- Cannonball, the ability of which is flying. For the role of this character, New Wolfe was chosen, who played in the previously mentioned movie "Blame the Stars";
- Sanspot, which with the help of solar energy releases energy flows;
- Mirage, embodying the fears of others;
- Warlock, able to change not only the size but also the shape of its techno-organic body.
