No One Quite Believes New Mutants’ New Release Date Is Any More Real Than Its Previous Ones
Remember when everything stopped and we all realized that it meant another delay for New Mutants, and we all thought that maybe we’d get it on streaming? Well … that’s not the case. Yet again, New Mutants seems to be pushing for a theatrical release, and honestly picked one SO close to Wonder woman 1984 and so close to movie theaters (maybe) reopening that I just have to laugh at this point.

The studio announced that the movie would still get its theatrical release and that it’s set for August 28th, two weeks after Wonder Woman 1984‘s August 14th date. Will everything be fine by then? Literally no one can say. Well … unless you’re Doctor Strange or Dr. Manhattan, but alas, we’re humans. Still, it’s a strange choice, and it’s going to be interesting to see if the movie can keep that date.
Twitter, though, is having a field day because the original release date for this movie was in April of 2018!
Maisie Williams gonna be in her 40s by the time New Mutants is released,

JUST IN: The New Mutants, yes those New Mutants, have a new release date. It will hit theaters (maybe?) on 8/28/20.

Tweeting for posterity. Have been nursing a theory that continues to feel more true that the simulation is broken and will only continue to be until the release of New Mutants. Only then will we be okay. You heard it here first.

Everyone assumes New Mutants will eventually get dumped onto Hulu
But after everything that movie has gone through, I keep hoping it gets the dignity of a theatrical release
Even if it’s just for 1 week in 2022

Maybe the timeline will be reset when NEW MUTANTS finally comes out, what if that’s the thing that’s led us all astray!

By setting a new “release date” for New Mutants during a worldwide pandemic, my theory is they are actively encouraging the jokes

New Mutants isn’t the cultural reset we need but it’s the one we deserve

this just means movie theaters are gonna stay closed to August 29

Will New Mutants make this new release date? Honestly, who knows? Everything is up in the air. I don’t even know when I’ll be back in my apartment. So, the idea of going to a movie theater as soon as August feels like a far off dream, and if those behind New Mutants (i.e. Disney) think we’ll be ready, then … I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
