It looks like we’ll be getting the X-Men spinoff movie The New Mutants sooner than expected.
Amazon Prime Video has seemingly listed a pre-order for The New Mutants for $25.99 for an HD digital version of the comic book film from director Josh Boone. A date isn’t mentioned in the entry but this would likely mean that the film is indeed heading to VOD and not directly to streaming services like Hulu or Disney+.
UPDATE: Amazon Prime Video has removed the pre-order listing and adding the following statement. This simply adds to confusion to what Disney/20th Century Studios is doing with the film’s release.
Our agreements with the content provider don’t allow purchases of this title at this time.
The film has undergone multiple release delays and Josh Boone recently confirmed that planned reshoots never took place.
