A piece of concept art and new details about the upcoming Fox Studios Josh Boone-directed New Mutants movie has hit the net.
Coming Soon posted the following New Mutants storyboard art revealing the villain of the movie to be Demon Bear, "a giant bear with immense strength that draws his power from negative human emotion. The beast is also capable of teleportation and corrupting souls."
They are also stating the New Mutants movie will be different than the previous sc-fi aspects of the X-Men films and will be more like a “Stephen King meets John Hughes”-style horror movie.
It's further said the New Mutants movie might be released Spring of 2018 and that Nat Wolff (who starred in Boone’s The Fault in Our Stars) is being eyed for the mutant Cannonball.
Other casting rumors surrounding New Mutants include Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane and Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as Magik.
