With news earlier today confirming that Disney has moved New Mutants to a release date of April 2020, it’s seeming more and more likely that Josh Boone’s film starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga may never actually seem the light of day. The film was originally slated to come out in April 2018, but has been repeatedly pushed back and has now been officially pushed back a full two years.
Doomsday Clock is a comic book series by Geoff “Jeff” Johns and Gary Frank, spinning out of DC Rebirth, an unauthorized sequel to Watchmen created without the consent of its original creators, designed to bring the Watchmen characters into the DCU (and possibly blame the Nu52 reboot on Doctor Manhattan). But though the first issue of Doomsday Clock came out in November of 2017, and the twelfth was expected in December 2018, the comic was soon made bi-monthly… and then, something less than bi-monthly, with later issues repeatedly pushed back, pushed back, and pushed back again. Readers are still waiting for Doomsday Clock #10, which is supposedly set to hit stores on May 29th. Doomsday Clock #11 has a release date of August. There is no announced release date for Doomsday Clock #12.
