The X-Men New Mutants comic was first published in 1982 from authors Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, as well as artist Bob McLeod.
The X-Men universe has so many fascinating characters and stories which the films have barely tapped into. Hopefully New Mutants will be the launching point for some of those lesser known personalities.
Early synopsis for the film reads:
Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
The cast list includes the always wonderful Maisie Williams (Game Of Thrones) as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (The VVitch) as Magik, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) as Cannonball, Henry Zaga (Teen Wolf) as Sunspot, Blu Hunt (The Originals) as Danielle Moonstar, and Alice Braga (Queen Of The South) as Dr. Celia Reyes.
New Mutants is set to open worldwide on April 13th, 2018.
