New Mutants movie slated for Fox

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 at 1:02 PM

In a recent interview with, Fox CEO Tom Rothman suggests plans to extend the X-Men universe with a New Mutants feature film that may be in the works.

The New Mutants is spin-off series from the X-Men comic books. The New Mutants made their debut in Marvel Graphic Novel #4 in 1982 and launched their own series in 1983. Charles Xavier (Professor X) decides its time to start a new class of students at his 'School for Gifted Youth' in upstate New York. His search takes him around the globe to find his special class of teenagers with incredible abilities. The original New Mutants included Sam Guthrie (AKA Cannonball), a coal miner who generates a blast field that allows him fly, Xi'an Coy Manh (Karma), a Vietnamese girl whose ability allows her to possess a person's body, Roberto DiCosta (Sunspot) from Brazil who converts solar energy into raw strength, Danielle Moonstar (Mirage) a Cheyenne indian that can project realistic illusions into your mind, and Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane) the young Scott who can turn into a wolf. Since the original class, there's been several new additions and versions of the team. The first series ran from 1983 - 1991. The series was restarted by Marvel in 2003 with a whole new set of students.

Rothman doesn't mention any particulars about the New Mutant film during the interview. Fox already has plans for another X-Men First Class film and a Wolverine sequel are still in the works.

Red carpet at 'Think Like a Man' Premiere at Regal Atlantic Station

Romany Malco Terrence Jenkins and Michael Ealy on red carpet at Think Like A Man premiere at Regal Atlantic Station in Atlanta Georgia

The media swarmed the red carpet for the premiere of Think Like a Man at Regal Atlantic Station on Tuesday. Early walkers on the rug included Mayor Kasim Reed, V-103's Wanda Smith and Frank Ski, Judge Brenda Hatchett. But it wasn't long before cast and producers of the film arrived.

I think I rekindled my crush on Gabrielle Union watching her stroll down the carpet. There may be a disproportionate number of pics in the gallery, just saying.

Think Like A Man opens in wide release April 20, 2012.

Yeah, I'm geeked!

George Takei, Sulu from the original 'Star Trek' series made the following announcement on Facebook today:

Friends, I'm thrilled to share this news with you today. As announced at Emerald City Comicon, where I'm appearing this weekend, Paramount Pictures has green-lit a new Star Trek Movie entitled "Excelsior" in which I will play the captain. This announcement is part of Paramount Studio's 100th-year anniversary campaign. The studio has acknowledged the fan enthusiasm for this concept ever since I appeared in command of the vessel in "The Undiscovered Country." J.J. Abrams will direct, with Robert Orci again writing the screenplay.

My co-star in Allegiance, Paulo Montalban, has been cast opposite me to play the mercurial "Agha," the grandson of Khan (played by Ricardo Montalban in the Second Star Trek Movie). Also featured are Gilbert Gottfried (playing a wily Ferengi First Officer) and Lisa Lampanelli (as a Bajoran security officer).

More to come on this breaking story soon. Thanks again for the years of support, and I'll see you on the Bridge of "Excelsior."

The original Star Trek series only ran three years, but developed its cult following after it was syndicated in 1969.

    • Local band Manchester Orchestra, who provided the soundtrack, probably would have appreciated a shout-out.
