'New Mutants' Teaser Promises Things Will Only Get Darker

It's going to be a difficult and terrifying road for the characters of The New Mutants and, according to the film's latest promo, things are only going to get darker.

The official New Mutants Twitter account shared a new motion image on Thursday, teasing a dark and scary journey for the young mutants in the film.

As you can see in the image below, Danielle Moonstar (Blu Hunt) is lying on the ground with the snow falling down around here. The still was featured in the initial trailer for New Mutants, and was accompanied by the message, "Things Will Only Get Darker."

Those who have read the New Mutants comics know exactly what that message is referring to.

In the comics, Danielle is able to project the fears of others, which will likely be tied to a lot of the terrifying things that the characters are seeing in the trailer. However, things get even darker than that, as one of the darkest things from Danielle's mind is a dangerous villain named Demon Bear.

The horrifying creature haunted the dreams of Danielle, before attacking others that she loved. Demon Bear was one of the biggest villains of the New Mutants comics, and many of his stories with Danielle took place in the snow.

If this image is teasing anything, it's likely that Demon Bear is on his way.


The New Mutants is set to hit theaters on April 13, 2018.
