The Justice League and Avengers have done a great deal to keep attention away from the X-Men, but 20th Century Fox has not forgotten the mutants. Thanks to a new update, fans learned New Mutants is in its final week of filming, and director Josh Boone shared a new logo for the film as well.
Taking to Instagram, Boone shared a photo with fans about the X-Men feature. The director posted a picture of a film slate from set. “Last weeks shooting,” Boone captioned the photo, but fans were too busy looking at the slate’s updated New Mutants logo.
As you can see, the update logo is a throwback to classic X-Men lettering. The black-and-white logo simply reads “The New Mutants” in block letters, but there is a bit of color to it. After all, it is pretty hard to miss the giant blood stained splattered across the logo.
The clapperboard also features another interesting detail. A lone figure can be seen standing in a snowy landscape under the night sky. The figure has their back turned to onlookers, but fans can see there is a trail of blood behind the person.
If you are not familiar with New Mutants, then you should know the film will be a scarier one. 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. The gang will discover their powers whilst imprisoned, but they will be forced to use their mutations to save themselves from the location.
Of course, fans know several heroes who will appear in New Mutants. Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot, Mirage, and Cecilia Reyes will all feature in the film. As for its villain, New Mutants is said to use the Demon Bear as its antagonist, and the character has been associated with wintery excursions before. That is, before the Demon Bear mauled its victims and all.
