Would it come out after First Class 3 and what about X4? How about FC3 is X4 and that can be in the 90s and start New Mutants in the 00s.

Expect an announcement this Summer. When Rotham was asked about directors who avoided the question.

Fox has all these superhero films what they doing? I wish they announce something more than a title. Then have the project sit there for years.

So will be looking at 13-18 year old mutants?

In which point of the timeline can we expect this to be set? After the final scene of DOFP? Could Patrick Stewart's Xavier still be around for this?

 

Exciting times to be an X-Men fan.

No clue. We're still wondering when Wolverine 3 will be set.

 

Are people thinking Gambit is going to take place around Apocalypse times? Or will it perhaps take place in the "present" that we saw at the end of DOFP. Which I suppose may get further muddied by whether or not Apocalypse messes around with the timeline.

 

New Mutants could take place in the happy DOFP future, where the school is up and running. Or it could take place right after Apocalypse, with Scott and Jean and everyone else basically joining the New Mutants team too. They'd really be just about the right age for New Mutants. It's funny, the movie could be called New Mutants, but it could star half of the original X-Men.

I don't know about that, because it's being remarked that this is a spin off and not a main entry in the series. I'm guessing any film starring Storm&Co will have "X-Men" in the title.

It may be a spin-off but New Mutants was always about a younger batch of mutant students at Xavier's. So I wouldn't be surprised if the younger crew of Apocalypse end up being the protagonists here.

I hope they set the movie  in the early 90s.

I agree about Dani Monster and Magik.

The authors only real point with Rictor is cause he's gay. If the story isn't important to use Rictor than using him is pointless. The author want's to make a socio-political point and I've worn thin of such things at this point. 

 

I'd say Cannonball, Wolfsbane and Boom-Boom are more integral to New Mutants lore. Get them plus bring in a young Warpath, Blink & Sunspot who featured in XM:DofP and you'v got a lineup. That way the audience sees a younger version of a few they've already seen + these new ones. 

Depending on if Domino appears in Deadpool you could even put a young Domino on the maybe pile of appearances.

I'm glad this seems to be making progress. The way Fox is going with their X-Men movies, I wouldn't be surprised to see them try to get this for 2017.

The original New Mutants were an uncharacteristically female-heavy team. I liked that there wasn't a "token female" (like it's become the norm in superhero team movies) and in fact, women tended to outnumber men in the team. I hope that they keep it that way for the film.
