I’m really surprised Disney would go ahead with this. They haven’t spent any money on it (except insofar as it’s an asset that was part of the Fox acquisition, and so has some nominal value in that package). They had no creative input, all rumors indicate production was a disaster, and the property currently has a clean slate for an MCU introduction. So why would they consider publishing this? What can they possibly hope to gain, unless they think it’s going to be a hit? And what could possibly make them think it’s going to be a hit?

It doesn’t make any sense to me at all.

Yeah, that’s what I was referring to when I said the rumors are that production has been a disaster. I couldn’t remember the details.

Well they spent no money on this and I'm betting they don't spend a lot to promote it. My guess is they spend a few million on it, send it out to the world and see what they make.

Yeah, I suppose that’s the reasoning. But it surprises me that they don’t see it as poisoning the well for future iterations of the NMU property.

The MCU obviously doesn't have plans to make its own New Mutants anytime soon.

If I remember the reshoots were to add Warlock to the film. Which... sounds like a disaster because it seemed like the film was done and it wasn't testing well if I remember accurately. It also was to add more horror to the film because that was the initial plan for it.

On the flip side, unless this movie massively overperforms I don't think they're getting that trilogy they wanted.

Ugh. “Disaster” sounds about right. “Our horror movie isn’t playing well, so let’s add bizarro sci-fi camp at the last minute. On a low budget. In an orphaned franchise. That’s been mishandled for 20 years.”

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
