The movie might feature Illyana's soul armor. Dammit, now I really want to see this.
A c-costume resembling the comics? Say it isn't so Fox!
Here's something weird:
The latest cut of The New Mutants has no references to the other X-Men movies.
Apparently it's in case Kevin Feige wants to consider the movie as a part of the MCU...
Huh. I mean, if the film makes money, they probably could bring it in to the MCU, like Deadpool. Deadpool had references to the Fox X-Men films, but they were pretty minimal and could thus be ignored; with New Mutants, even the trailers didn't show anything X-Men related (and included things like "Do you know what a mutant is?"), so it might have been easier to cut things related to the Fox X-Men movies.
Assuming The New Mutants does make dough:
Illyana moving on to be an apprentice to Doctor Strange, anyone?
A movie with Strange, Scarlet Witch, and Illyana would be awesome.
There's an X-Men comic that was released last year called What If? Magik Became the Sorcerer Supreme and it was very good.
Hey, guess what? This movie is still coming to theaters this April!
New Mutants artist and co-creator Bill Sienkiewicz said to Kevin Smith on the latter's Fatman Beyond podcast that Josh Boone showed him a new trailer and has nothing to say but good things about it.
Apparently we might see this trailer sometime next month.

Hmm. Interesting. Maybe they delayed the film because they wanted to keep working on the VFX? Now there's an interesting thought: because this film didn't have a rigid date when it had to come out (it being the last of the Fox X-Men films), it could delay and take as much time as it needed to complete the visual effects, unlike some of the MCU films and, uh, Cats.
I'm glad it's coming out in theaters (two years after it was supposed to), because the first trailer looked awesome.

Is the movie still the same?
That's what we don't know. If rumors/speculations are true they might have altered it to fit into the MCU.
If that's true, what does it mean? No more R-rating? The horror aspect downplayed, if not completely erased? Will they remove the kiss between Wolfsbane and Dani? That's all wait and see.
I kinda wonder what this means for the actors. I'm sure it's gonna be a bit of a mess negotiating with them since probably some of them have already signed into other things (particularly Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams) trying to sign them into 6-7 movies -assuming they even want to- like most MCU actors do is gonna be a hassle. I also imagine that will factor on whether or not they will include this into the MCU.
(I do think we can live without this Sunspot and cast a actual black Brazilian actor instead.)

Yeah, it was reported that "it would feature a LGBT couple", being Wolfsbane and Dani, but later reports indicated that it was a kiss during a spin the bottle game, not a actual relationship.
Also, yeah, I agree and I don't think they'll make it fit within the MCU, I find those rumors and speculations to be mostly wishful thinking.

Well, that's definitely two characters who weren't LGBT in the comics. But I guess if you cut out the actual LGBT characters, like Karma and (probably) Magik, and still want to include LGBT characters, those are ones you can pick.
Seems like something that will likely be cut sadly.
I mean, if they don't care about the Chinese market for this one, maybe not.
China didn’t censor The Rise of Skywalker. It’s all in Disney’s hands.
Give us a LGBT main character, dammit.
Now I'm just looking forward to the potential Doctor Aphra Disney+ show.
New trailer coming January 6!

Furthermore, this will be Josh Boone's version of the movie coming to theaters, not the version Fox wanted him to make after IT: Chapter One caught the world by storm.
According to the director, the movie has ALWAYS been rated PG-13.
The trailer is coming tomorrow, 01-06-20, 6am.
New Mutants new trailer.
Seems that they are indeed keeping the Rahne/Dani romance, and it seems that is indeed more than them just kissing for a game.
Illyana looks really cool too.
If they get Magik right I don't even care if the rest of the movie is trash. I hope it's established that her sword and armor are magical and not part of her mutant power.
Wait, the doctor is supposed to be Cecilia Reyes?
If the cast of Sunspot wasn't enough, they just straight up erased one of the most prominent black latinas in comics.
Fuck this movie.
