Deadpool and Logan certainly opened up the floodgates for the folks over at Fox. It has recently become very clear that they’ve focused their energy too much on the X-Men themselves, and not on the other characters that surround the mythology.

In addition to Deadpool and X-Force, Fox is looking to pave new ground with The New Mutants. Speaking with HeyUGuys, actress Anya Taylor-Joy discussed the film, and how much the film’s director, Josh Boone, loves the source material.

“I think the nicest thing about it is that Josh Boone is just such a fan of the comics, and he really loves them so much, that he’s really interested in just making sure we do the comics justice for the people who love the characters. We all feel so lucky to be such incredibly loved characters. So whilst it’s definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won’t be disappointed. We definitely kept all the important bits in there.”

The New Mutants is definitely a project to keep an eye on, as it’s the one that’s seemingly changed the most. When it was first pitched to fans, it was done so as a YA-focused film — which was surprising since one could describe X-Men: First Class as that.

However, since then, the film’s done a 180, and has more recently been described as a fully-fledged horror movie. No costumes, no capes, just teens and blood.
