I’m so out of touch that I didn’t realize I was supposed to be expecting the first trailer for The New Mutants film, out in April 2018.
Thanks to 20th Century FOX for hosting their own video.
I saw this was an option to view yesterday but didn’t have the time to watch it, where I was at. So I looked up any information about the trailer, before hand, so I would know what to look for.
I found Kevin Melrose’s article on the Comic Book Resources.
Nothing ground breaking that you couldn’t get from watching it yourself. Besides knowing how the actors and where you may have recognized them from, which is pretty handy.
I hadn’t realized Charlie Heaton was cast as Cannonball, off of his successful appearance in Stranger Things.
What got me all types of excited was Chris Brown’s comment on that article about young Illyana’s plush friend.
Could that be Lockheed!?! At the very least, enough of a representation so if they do hint some sort of winter time mindscape, that the plush animal can become “real” and be a cat sized flying dragon named, Lockheed.
We watched the trailer and I had to keep rewinding it on Youtube as I kept missing the exact second so that my wife could see the plush friend.
It is a microsecond within the 1:40 second mark. I saw the “There is Something” and “New” so many times!
This morning, while drinking my V8, like an adult, I was thinking about how exciting it would be to finally getting Lockheed on screen. Magik and Lockheed, finally being represented in film, is going to be amazing!
April 13, 2018, I’m getting pretty pump!
What helps is that we’re talking about taking Walker Dennis to movies now. Our plan is to see Disney’s Coco and see how that goes. The Alex Foundation partners with Cinemark 8 to have these special Sensory Friendly screenings and we feel those would be a great way to slowly introduce him to the movie going experience.
Apparently, this is supposed to kick off an entire trilogy of horror films. Which I imagine the next one, that is supposed to have Warlock and Karma in it, will take place in Legion’s mind, another horror element. Be awesome if they could get Dan Stevens to be in that film, maybe commit a season to setting up that film. Two franchises, who wouldn’t want that!?! They’ll want to include Rachel Heller too, I know I want that.
Josh Boon, who directs the film, and co-wrote it with Knate Lee, is influenced by the Bill Sienkiewicz’s run on New Mutants, written (of course) by Chris Claremeont. The article sites the run as being from 18 – 31, and 35 – 38.
What would the third film be? They can’t go to Asgard, unless they can!?! FOX should give Disney the Fantastic Four rights so FOX can borrow Asgard, then the three main New Mutants storylines could be properly represented.
No, they won’t go to Asgard, they will probably go to Limbo, the fourth storyline the New Mutants do. “Crazy teen hi-jinks” would probably be the fifth one, where they fight the teen rival team of the Hellions.
Legion is supposed to come back in February, I have to renew our subscription to FX, by then.
2018 is going to be a big X-Year!
February – Legion Season 2
April – New Mutants
June – Deadpool 2
November – Dark Phoenix
Plus, Gifted second half of the season, should be airing still. We’re caught up on all three episodes and it is pretty good. I keep thinking about how Natalie Alyn Lind was Dana on The Goldbergs, Adam’s first girlfriend. Apparently, she was on Gotham too. A show that I think about catching up on. But who has the time for all of these shows? I’ve been impress that we’re keeping up as good as we are. Waking up early to get The Voice and Dancing with the Stars out of the way, has really helped.
Gifted is only ten episodes, so it may be done by December. We’re actually at the ten weeks before the end of the year mark, and those are going to go fast, so yeah, all the episodes should have aired by the end of the year, unless they delay a few to get into January. Though they only have to air seven more, so that would give them time to air all of them before Christmas, when television watching goes down. Well, besides the highly anticipated Doctor Who Christmas episode and various other Christmas themed episodes, specials and movies.
Let’s hope that Marvel can get behind this gravy train and release some actual product! I’ll straight by two Lockheed plush animals, just give me the opportunity already!
Heck, they put Lockheed on anything, I’m buying that nonsense. Then, Dani can bring that version of him outside of Illyana’s head and boom! Lockheed is in existence in the film proper. So easy to write!
Then, of course, we have to get Lockheed and Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde together and have the most fun film of all time! Get Anya Taylor-Joy (who looks great as Magik) for a buddy movie for the ages!
I Googled “Anya Taylor Joy Ellen Page Lockheed” and found this website –
Alex Wong wrote an article for Inverse, talking about the connection too.
I was hoping to see some fun fan art that put those actresses together. Did you know that Taylor-Joy is 21 and Page is 30? I didn’t until I looked it up. Ellen Page still looks super young so they can still buddy it up in that film. It’ll be awesome, do it FOX! Do it!
