    Well I am glad to see Fox announce this as it actually finally gives some idea what they're doing with the X-Men franchise. Granted we know that they're making Deadpool and Gambit but with X-Men Apocalypse being the finale of the prequel Trilogy and the 2017 March X-Flick that marks the last time Hugh Jackman is going to play Wolverine we need some fresh new blood or at least some idea what's going to happen with the new cast. And I think this answers that: we can have new mutants being guided by the old guard if the original New Mutants are based on new recruits. Since honestly we've seen bits of that in other X-Men movies but it would be good to get more of a focus on that for one of them.

    Great to finally have confirmation that Fox going forward with expanding their live-action universe :).

    New Mutants are awesome, and I hope we get to see the classic roster in this. I wonder if it'll take place in the present day, and if we might see some of the present-day X-Men in cameos? I recall that rumor about Kelsey Grammar coming back as Beast for something like this, which would be pretty awesome :D.

    Even better if they get Patrick Stewart to come back as Xavier ;).

    A little funny that we'll be seeing a movie that likely focuses on the next generation of X-Men when we're pretty much getting that in Apocalypse as well, just in radically different periods of time.This might also give us a better idea of what the present day of the X-Men universe looks like aside from the glimpse we saw at the end of DoFP, depending on how they handle it :cool:.

    This is a film, not a TV show.

    Great, been waiting for this. I have doubts they will go with the classic line-up which I loved so much. Some of them like Wolfsbane and Warlock would be great to see on screen. However, having both this and X-Force in the pipeline is intriguing, as this one should debut before. Couple of ways this can go:

    -It will really just be New Mutants in name only and be X-Men 5 with the team introduced in Apocalypse.
    -It will be a completely new group of mutants, chosen by producers.
    -It will be a proper adaptation of the comic, with characters from original NM and modern NM.

    We can have New Mutants be kinda like what First Class tried to do, X-Force can bridge the two. Heck, X-Force already has Deadpool and Psylocke. BTW, glad to see it looks like Kinberg is FOX's Feige.

    Not sure I like the director, but a New Mutants film is a good idea. I love how FOX is finally expanding it's universe with films like this, Deadpool and X-Force.

    I want to see Ellen Page to return as Kitty Pryde so she can be the leader.

    Those books look very clean and recently purchased. When I think lifelong X-Men fan, I think wore out comic books, not neat hardbound collections.

    Seems he will use at least some of the original characters from that book. Haven't seen Boone's films, but no reason to cast sudden doubt on him.

    I don't think a year was ever said - just 'a couple years from now' but I've seen 2017 and 2018 floated around.

    People are saying a Deadpool Sequel will probably take FF2's place but they don't have any scripts for either of those.

    Reports have been Wolverine 3 for March 3, 2017, the Fantastic Four sequel on July 14, 2017, and a mystery Marvel film arriving on July 13, 2018. That was never confirmed to be this or X-Force.

    X-Force was basically a spin off of New Mutants, maybe Fox wants to make Cable and Deadpool team up movie then make X-Force the big crossover.

    If they're taking a brake with the original line up then this must be the 2018 movie.

    Fox still treats the X-Men movies as generic action movies (aside from Deadpool obviously) hopefully the ladder will lead to a push into the opposite direction.
    I seriously wonder what the plan for the movie is though, what is the team line up, and could this lead to the Cable and Deadpool team up the same way the comics did.
