In 20th Century Studios’ The New Mutants, five teenagers with extraordinary abilities will find themselves trapped in a mysterious facility. And lurking somewhere in its halls, the Demon Bear is ready to strike. Recent teasers for the new movie have provided glimpses at the monstrous character’s upcoming live-action debut. But it looks like he’ll be toying with the young mutants, including Maisie Williams’ Rahne Sinclair, before he finally attacks.
The Demon Bear’s presence most likely plays a big role in The New Mutants’ level of psychological horror. For proof of this, look no further than this latest photo of Rahne (a.k.a. Wolfsbane) in her bedroom at the facility and wondering if she’s really alone. You can view the image via The New Mutants’ official Twitter account below.

Fortunately, Rahne is hiding her own beastly side. Comic fans will remember that her mutant power allows her to change into a wolf, a “gift” that she struggles to square with her strictly religious upbringing. Rahne will also have a romantic relationship with Blu Hunt’s Dani Moonstar/Mirage in the film.
After two years of delays, The New Mutants was finally scheduled to have its big opening in April. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic forced 20th Century Studios and its new parent company, Disney, to once again postpone its release to August 28. As this new date looms on the horizon, the future of moviegoing remains hazy. But the studios appear committed to debuting the film later this month. In fact, if a new report from Variety holds up, it could very well be the movie that brings people back to theaters in the COVID-19 era. According to the report, tickets for the film will be available starting on August 18.
