According to The Tracking Board, The New Mutants was delayed by nearly a year earlier this year and has since been delayed again to an August 2, 2019 release date. The film was originally set to be PG-13, but the success of Warner Bros.’ Stephen King adaptation IT made the studio reconsider the amount of scares in the film, and allowed for director Josh Boone to add more. The site also says that there was set to be a post-credit scene for the film, which would have been an addendum to X-Men: Apocalypse’s “Essex Corpoartion” tease, and would have featured Mad Men star Jon Hamm as the villain Mister Sinister. That scene has since been scrapped and Tracking Board reveals that the film’s post-credit scene will now feature a different villain, reported to be played by Antonio Banderas. The film is set to star Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, and Alice Braga.
