I loved the Lockheed plush in the shot with young Illyana. I am hoping that the scene is part of her backstory where she is kidnapped and taken to Limbo. An early storyboard indicated we would see the real Lockheed so maybe Magik befriends him in Limbo.

It's not my type of movie, but I'm still going to see where it takes me. It might end up being brilliant.

Please tell me that is not going to be Cecelia Reyes' onscreen appearance. I was very excited for her because she is an afro Latina, very rare in cinema, and because I just love her story arc. If you can't tick either of those boxes off why bother? Now I'll just hope there's an awesome Marvel Legends new mutants line that has a comic version of her when this comes out (and maybe Magik, Dani, and Sam too? One can dream).
Yeah, that's her. There have been minor rumblings of discontent among people because of her and Roberto's castings.

Sigh. Well I can at least hope that means she might get a resurgence in the comics...but hopefully not changed into some creepy villainous lady with a much lighter skin tone and lacking her super awesome dreds.

@EMP-yeah, they do owe us one! The new Marvel Legends are awesome, and I'd love some New Mutants characters to go with the collection. And getting a Cecilia figure would make my life, since she's one of my favorite X-Men, and probably my fave D lister.

This movie was supposed to come out this year but is now being pushed back to next year.

Yeah, I saw that. Though insider talk is that they didn't want New Mutants to compete with Deadpool in certain markets, the move doesn't inspire a ton of confidence in the movie.

This movie was sandwiched between Black Panther, Infinity War and Deadpool. That's a really tough spot to be in. It was bound to be overlooked or serve as a punching bag for critics had it stayed in its original release schedule.
Now it will be near Hell Boy, Captain Marvel and Shazam. Those will be far more forgiving competitors. I really can't blame them for moving it and it could end up being beneficial in the long run.

Anyway, supposedly they will be doing reshoots to up the horror elements:
Word on the street is that after the film tested well but not great, the studio decided to actually embrace the film’s horror elements and beef up the scares in the wake of the success of It and Get Out last year.

Honestly I really hope this does well. Josh Boone clearly loves the source material so I want to see what he can do with it. I'm curious about the trilogy he pitched at Fox that reportedly impressed them so much they decided to give him a shot. I'm guessing a trilogy would be perfect to tell Illyana's story. Can you imagine Inferno in the big screen?

Well, that makes me feel a little better. If they want to go all out with the horror elements, I'm down.

Gutted. But I am a little relieved as I was worried about the tonne of huge superhero films around it.

I actually have a friend who was part of the New Mutants test screening (he attends a film school and goes to a lot of things like that). He said he wasn't impressed, but he probably would have liked it better if he already knew the characters. The most interesting thing he said was that he "didn't know it was supposed to be a horror movie until [he] went online afterwards" (he avoids all trailers and information before watching a movie). Also, he noted that people might look at it in a better light because it has a "progressive subplot". I couldn't get any specifics out of him on that. I asked him if Lockheed was in it, and he didn't know who that was. After explaining that he's "the dragon", my friend mentioned that he signed a form saying that he can't really talk about what actually happened in the film.

He jokes that he "feels guilty" about being part of what set the film back. If anyone has any really vague questions about the cut that was shown, I'd be happy to ask him.

Got more information out of him. Some major spoilers, though it's possible they might change as the film is worked on.

One is about a romantic relationship that no one really would have guessed:
Spoiler: show
Illyana and Dani become an item.
The other is about the villain(s):
Spoiler: show
Cecilia Reyes is the main antagonist, but she's supposed to be someone we're sympathetic towards. Also, there is a demon bear.
Also, about Lockheed:
Spoiler: show
Lockheed is just a puppet that Illyana carries around and talks to. She "speaks" for him.

while I think some LGBT representation is good, I always thought Illyana was asexual and think that would be even better to show in a mainstream movie. Has Illyana ever shown interest in a relationship in the comics?
Adding a character this late doesn't seem to bode well for film as is and also editing will have to be good to make it work with old stuff!

Once Louise Simonson took over New Mutants, all of the girls became rather boy crazy, including Illyana. While she never started a relationship, she was attracted to guys, just no one in the cast of New Mutants.

I haven't read all of Simonson's run, but that must not have stuck in my memory, guess I'm used to to the multiple love triangles that the other X-Men have :p
