The New Mutants fans are just hoping that they get some kind of release in 2020 at this point. People had the movie trending on Twitter because of a DiscussingFilm poll about all the movies that have been pushed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, New Mutants is different in that regard because it’s release woes stretch back further than this year. In fact, there were fans at the tail end of 2019 advocating for an early release as well. With Warner Bros. moving a lot of its slate back last week, other fans are running scared that the same fate could be waiting for their favorite franchises. However, New Mutants fans have been living in a bit of chaos for a while now. They just want some kind of a resolution whether it comes on Hulu, Disney+, or in theaters.
Earlier in the year, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld told Inverse about the murmurs surrounding test screenings of the film. From his friends’ accounts, that first cut of the film thrilled audiences. New Mutants fans should be pretty psyched that the theatrical version doesn’t differ much from that test screening footage.

“That New Mutants movie was shot before Deadpool 2. Next week is two years since Deadpool 2 came out. New Mutants was shot before, and I don’t know what the hell happened, dude. Now it’s on Amazon for pre-order? Just give it to us,” Liefeld observed. “Here’s the truth: my friends saw a test screening, and I couldn’t attend that day. I would have been able to sneak in. They loved it. Here’s what I know: all my friends who saw New Mutants in December of 2017 loved it. They loved it.”
“They were describing it to me, they said a couple of special effects weren’t done, but they loved it. Then it got taken off the schedule, and then Disney happened, but I hear it’s great,” he added. “Here’s the deal: do you really want to go back and sit in the theater? I’m a giant movie nerd, and it’s gonna be a long time. I do not miss it… I’m not going to a theater where you can sneeze on me. I think we’ve all gotten a little agoraphobic.”

Come on everyone
If you took New Mutants it would still get delayed.
Give me Tenet, WW84, and then No Time to Die but I’m tempted to take Candyman or Black Widow https://t.co/y7PnATimWt— David Albiani (@david_albiani) June 24, 2020
An idea people have been calling for
Studios, y'all would make so much more money if you went day-and-date with some of these films.@MarvelStudios NEW MUTANTS? You really won't pull the trigger on that one to test? You'll be applauded for giving fans at-home access *and* make more $$$ than August theatrical-only.— Steve Norwood (@norwoodeyesays) June 25, 2020
