"The New Mutants" Movie Updates

Marvel Comics' "The New Mutants: Dead Souls"#1, in support of the Marvel/Fox feature "The New Mutants" opening February 22, 2019, is written by Matthew Rosenberg and illustrated by Adam Gorham, with a cover by Ryan Stegman, available March 14, 2018:

"...'The New Mutants' are launching themselves headfirst into some of the creepiest corners of the 'Marvel Universe', going on the missions no one else will. But does the team know what they are really hunting for? And what are they willing to do to get it? 

"The enigmatic 'Magik' will lead her team of 'Wolfsbane', 'Rictor', 'Boom-Boom' and 'Strong Guy', to bring them face-to-face with paranormal threats that they may not be prepared for, that might just tear them apart..."

"in 'The New Mutants' movie, held in a secret facility against their will, five new 'mutants' have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves."

"We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the 'X-Men' universe," said director Josh Boone.

"There are no costumes. There are no super-villains. We’re trying to do something very, very different." 

"We loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had 'Demon Bear'. It was really dark, interesting, and different from the typical 'X-Men' stories that we had read...

The 'Demon Bear' draws power from negative human emotion, with the abilities of teleportation and the power to corrupt human souls.
