I have zero opinion about this. I never saw the last X-Men and I don't have any desire to after I heard how bad it was. I wonder what timeline this movie will tap into.

That's neat how Maisie Williams is going to be in it since her sister in GoT was in the other one.

X-Men Spinoff The New Mutants Will Be a Horror Movie
New Mutants will be a horror movie set within the X-Men universe. No costumes. No supervillains.

How would that have even worked. She would be in the Marvel Universe as two different characters simultaneously? DD/JJ/Luke Cage and New Mutants?

Not really. MCU and X-Men universes aren't the same. She would have been working for 2 Marvel properties in 2 different universes. Just like X-men has their Quicksilver and MCU has theirs. But I agree, not everyone is as nerdy as me and don't understand that Disney owns all of Marvel, but they only own certain rights for movie characters.

Well this is a horror movie in the X-Men movie-verse and that's a TV show with no ties (I assume)
