The entire subtext of director Josh Boone’s New Mutants movie has been using mutant powers as a metaphor for the maturation process — and all of the dangerous new impulses (and potential consequences) that come with it. However, the story of the New Mutants team coming together will presumably include a nice message about youth embracing their power.

It’s a nice and timely message — but it also means we’ll get some awesome X-Men movie spectacle in the process.
New Mutants is still scheduled for release on August 28th. For now.
