Report: Disney is ‘Unimpressed’ With New Mutants

After the cosmic flop of Dark Phoenix, which caused Disney’s third quarter earnings to be lower than expected, many are wondering what it means for the final Fox X-Men release; New Mutants. Well, a new report out doesn’t bode well for its future.

According to a new report from Variety, Disney isn’t expecting much from the movie:

“Disney is optimistic that handing Fox superhero properties such as “Fantastic Four” and “X-Men” to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will improve the quality of these movies, but bumps must be smoothed over in that transition. The studio is unimpressed with “New Mutants,” an “X-Men” spinoff with a haunted-house vibe, and believes it has limited box office potential.”

If they’re already bracing themselves for its “limited box office potential”, that means they’re still looking at a theatrical release for it, as opposed to dumping it on streaming like so many people have rumored.
