Although Logan was the only X-Men movie to debut in 2017, Fox has a number of films slated for 2018, including New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix - plus, it was recently announced Gambit will release in early 2019.

New Mutants director Josh Boone has posted an image on his instagram presaging the first trailer for the still-in-production film. In addition to continuing the main thread of X-Men movies, Fox has begun branching out to include spinoffs that don't necessarily fit within the central timeline. They're hormonal, they're powerful, and they're ready to wreak havoc on just about anyone who crosses them, as today's first-look teaser proves.

Watch the trailer above now. Reports have suggested Fox is looking to make a younger mark on the X-Men franchise and put its new adolescent heroes in a horror scenario. Little is known about the film as of yet, but fans do know it will see a group of mutants forced into a secret facility.


On the casting docket for The New Mutants are The Witch breakout Anya Taylor-Joy (Illyana Rasputin/Magik), Maisie Williams (Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane), Charlie Heaton (Sam Guthrie/Cannonball), Alice Braga (Dr. Cecilia Reyes), Henry Zaga (Roberto da Costa/Sunspot), and Blu Hunt (Danielle Moonstar/Mirage). Next spring, X-Men fans will see the arrival of a whole new breed of mutants in the appropriately titled New Mutants.

The New Mutants adapts the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982.
