“The Demon Bear Saga” was an amazing and terrifying tale the cemented The New Mutants as an X-Men and Comics classic.
Word broke last year that the upcoming New Mutants movie was going to center around aspects of that tale, and everyone was shook. We got a bit of a sneak into the world of New Mutants when Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants,” Heaton told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying too much — I really don’t want to give away too much what it’s about, it’s very under wraps — but it is, in terms of anything we’ve seen in the X-Men world, it definitely is a horror film. It’s scarier than anything we’ve seen in that genre.”
Heaton plays Sam Guthrie a.k.a. Cannonball (HE’S NIGH INVULNERABLE WHEN HE’S BLASTIN!) in a cast that also includes Maise Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, and Blu Hunt as Dani Moonstar.
