An alleged leak claims to spoil the plot of the upcoming New Mutants film.
The leak, seen below, was posted to 4Chan and begins by detailing the various powers that the New Mutants members have.
It reads, “Five mutant teenagers – Danielle Moonstar (Blu Hunt), who can create illusions; Ilyana Rasputin (Anya Taylor-Joy), who can open portals to the hellish dimension Limbo; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who can transform into a wolf; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who can fly at supersonic speeds; and Roberto Da Costa (Henry Zaga), who can absorb and manipulate energy.”
This isn’t new information, most fans of the comics will recognize the members of the New Mutants and their individual abilities.
It then details that they “are captured and taken to a psychiatric hospital managed by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga), who claims to want to help them control their powers and reintegrate into society.”
Again, this too isn’t new information, anyone who has watched the trailers has probably picked up on this. In fact, the official description from Twentieth Century Studios even claims this.
The official description reads, “Rahne Sinclair (Williams), Illyana Rasputin (Taylor-Joy), Sam Guthrie (Heaton) and Roberto da Costa (Zaga) are four young mutants being held in an isolated hospital for psychiatric monitoring.”
It continues, “Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Braga),believing the teenagers are a danger both to themselves and to society as a whole, keeps a close eye on them as she struggles to teach them how to rein in their mutant abilities. When newcomer Danielle “Dani” Moonstar (Hunt) joins the other patients in the facility, strange occurrences begin to take place.
The description concludes, “The hospital’s patients are plagued by hallucinations and flashbacks, and their new mutant abilities—and their friendships—will be tested as they battle to try to make it out alive.”
The cast of the film would echo this description in a newly released video clip breaking down the film in 60 seconds.
The leak then alleges “The New Mutants experience visions of their greatest fears – Dani’s father was murdered by a supernatural entity known as “Demon Bear”, Illyana was a child sex slave, Rahne was accused of being a demon and nearly executed by her religious community, Sam caused a fatal accident at the mine where he worked, and Roberto accidentally burned his girlfriend.”
It continues, “They attempt to leave, only to realize that they are prisoners and that Dr. Reyes is collecting and experimenting on their DNA and plans to kill them afterwards. They attempt to fight, but Dr. Reyes overpowers them and reveals herself a mutant capable of projecting force fields. She prepares to kill them when Demon Bear arrives and devours her.”
This appears to be new information. We don’t really know much about Dr. Reyes. However, we do know in the trailers that the New Mutants are trapped in the facility by a a force field.
With Reyes eaten by the Demon Bear, the leak then details the New Mutants face off against the Demon Bear, “The New Mutants learn that Demon Bear is creature from Limbo manipulating Dani into creating illusions of their fears to feed off their psychic energy. They overcome their demons, Dani frees herself from Demon Bear’s influence, and Illyana ventures into Limbo to retrieve a powerful “Soulsworld”, which she uses to destroy Demon Bear once and for all.”
This part has also been hinted at in the trailers. We’ve seen Ilyana go into what appears to be Limbo to achieve her sword. We’ve also seen the team facing off against the Demon Bear.
In fact, the most recent teaser trailer shows Ilyana using her soulsword to not only fight the Demon Bear, but also some kind of zombie-like creatures.
Not only does the most recent teaser showcase Magik fighting the Demon Bear, but an official clip also reveals that the Demon Bear is hunting Dani because that is what she fears.
Finally, the alleged leak concludes, “The New Mutants then flee before authorities arrive to investigate the hospital’s destruction, vowing to stay together and protect each other from whoever comes after them.”
The New Mutants is expected to arrive in theaters on August 28, 2020.
