Today at CinemaCon saw Disney promote the Fox Studios X-Men New Mutants movie, leading to speculation the flick may indeed get a theatrical release.
During the panel, Disney indicated that New Mutants is still part of its 2019 release schedule, and a Dolby Vision release slate indicated that New Mutants is imminent.

There has been rumor and speculation that New Mutants wouldn’t get a theatrical release as it has been said that following the Disney acquisition of Fox Studios, New Mutants might be released on the HULU streaming service. Recently saw it stated that the movie won’t undergo reshoots, and Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays Illyana Rasputin / Magik, recently said she had no idea about the film’s release. Maisie Williams also said she had no idea what was going on and hoped her character would one day share screen time with Game of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey.
