Meet Mirage, Wolfsbane and Sunspot in The New Mutants character featurettes

With The New Mutants finally coming to theaters after literally years of delays, there's a massive story in Vulture about some of the reasons why the final X-Men movie from 20th Century Fox (now part of Disney) took so long to finish. This week, we already learned about one version of the movie where Storm from the X-Men played the role of the New Mutants' "sadistic jailer" in the film, and now Entertainment Weekly has a description of the first draft of the movie, which is full of new, fascinating details. The film was first green-lit back in 2015, with The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone tapped to direct the X-Men-adjacent project.

McLeod's statement about the movie started off with his excitement that characters he co-created and designed would be in a movie. "I thought making it into a horror movie was perhaps an interesting idea, but not at all how the characters should be introduced to the public at large".

Google extends its work-from-home policy for employees until summer 2021
Many firms have floated aggressive timetables to get people back into the office, but Google is apparently embracing remote work. As The Wall Street Journal reports , last week Google CEO Sundar Pichai held a debate with Google's other top executives.

McLeod also added his voice to what's become a common criticism of the film in the lead-up to its release: The casting of Roberto DaCosta, aka Sunspot, as a light-skinned character, rather than the dark-skinned Afro-Brazilian person he's depicted as in the comics. "Yet another example of Hollywood white-washing". After assembling an impressive cast of up-and-coming talent including Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Boone actually got the would-be superhero horror flick before cameras in 2017, with The New Mutants originally eyeing a 2018 release. "There's just no excuse".

"So basically, #JoshBoone erased everything I contributed to the way the characters look". "They couldn't even be bothered to check the spelling of my name sometime in the last three years". That will be on the movie forever. (There's the whole matter of there are no movie theaters open in the entire state where I live.) But if the early reviews are to be believed, it sure looks like the movie itself is a lot less interesting than it's long and tortured production, which spanned years, a big corporate merger, and countless versions. There's not a whole lot of options at the moment if you're a cinephile jonesing to sit in a theater again after most cinemas have been shuttered for almost 6 months. When unusual occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
