Josh Boone on How X-Men: Apocalypse’s Failure Changed New Mutants

Josh Boone Explains How X-Men: Apocalypse Failure Changed New Mutants

20th Century Studios’ The New Mutants has undergone so many different changes, from its numerous release date shuffles to the various versions ordered by the studio. Now, in a recent interview with Slash Film, director Josh Boone revealed how the failure of X-Men: Apocalypse completely shifted his original vision of the film.

“They really did want it to be different than other stuff,” Boone said. “They really pushed us to keep it separate from X-Men stuff, even though it’s set in the X-Men universe. We had early drafts that were supposed to be in the same timeline as ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ so it was originally going to be set in the ’80s. Originally, Professor X and Storm were in it, and Storm very much played the Alice Braga role.”

“Over the course of months, a new studio head came in, they said they didn’t want any X-Men movies to take place in the past anymore, as if that was the reason that ‘Apocalypse’ was bad. [laughs] So we were put in the position where we kind of rewrote it to be set now in a nebulous [point in time], because nobody knew how the movies had turned out. ‘Dark Phoenix’ wasn’t out yet. Yeah, it’s there – they talk about Professor X and those things, but it doesn’t have cameos from anyone or anything like that.”

It’d be cool to see Disney/Marvel combine New Mutants with its plans for X-Men in the future. Who knows, maybe the long wait for Boone’s flick will ultimately pay off with amazing results! The film is currently set for an August 28, 2020 release, so we don’t have to wait much longer.
