If you’re a fan of Philip Pullman’s famous novel series “His Dark Materials,” you’re probably familiar with the ill-fated attempt to adapt the series for live-action in 2007’s “The Golden Compass.” Produced at the height of ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Narnia’ buzz in the film industry, “The Golden Compass” failed to turn into a franchise and was ultimately disappointing for fans of the novels.

‘His Dark Materials’ First Trailer: James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson Star in HBO Fantasy Series

As you may have heard, there’s something happening on HBO this coming Sunday night. As the network looks to get as many eyeballs as possible on upcoming projects, the latest tease might just fit in best with fans looking for a post-“Game of Thrones” fix.

“His Dark Materials,” the landmark Philip Pullman trilogy, forms the basis for the new HBO limited series, which follows Lyra (Dafne Keen) as she navigates a treacherous fantasy world where children are in grave danger. The series constructs a reality where humans and other living beings are connected by metaphysical bonds. As logically follows when a mystical, unexplained power is in play, the fight to control it quickly envelops everything in its path.

That includes the warring ideologies of Marisa Coulter (Ruth Wilson) and Lord Asriel (James McAvoy). When that fight starts to lead to mysterious disappearances, things creep closer to armed conflict.

The New Mutants Movie in Limbo, Says Maisie Williams

Joseph Baxter Mar 26, 2019

Fox’s X-Men spinoff movie, The New Mutants, remains up in the air, especially after Disney’s acquisition of the company.

The New Mutants movie has had things rough, and that doesn’t appear to be changing as the film heads toward its planned August release date. Indeed, the film – spotlighting Marvel Comics’ classic spinoff title about an auxiliary X-Men team of the Professor Xavier’s younger students – had been the subject of reports citing obstacles and delays, which reportedly led to reshoots. While the film finally settled on a date after being shuffled on 20th Century Fox’s release calendar, co-star Maisie Williams just dropped some (not at all encouraging) bombshells about its status.

In a lengthy Rolling Stone interview piece primarily focused on the impending conclusion of her Game of Thrones role of Arya Stark (and Sophie Turner’s role as Sansa Stark), Williams – who,

Rumour: The New Mutants reshoots would have added Logan’s X-23

Back in February of last year, 20th Century Fox announced the first of two delays for its X-Men spinoff The New Mutants, with rumours circulating that the studio would be reshooting much of director Josh Boone’s (The Fault in Our Stars) material, even going so far as to insert a new character into the film.

Fast forward a year, and said reshoots are yet to take place, with the film now seemingly in limbo following Disney’s Fox acquisition, and various reports claiming that New Mutants will be pulled from its theatrical release and dumped on the likes of Hulu or Disney+.

Well, if a rumour is to be believed, the new character that Fox had planned to incorporate Dafne Keen’s Laura Kinney/X-23 into the movie following the positive reception to her debut in Hugh Jackman’s X-Men swansong Logan.

Which X-Men Movies Are Dead Now That Disney Owns Fox?

Disney now officially owns the vast majority of media assets previously held by 21st Century Fox. This means, the X-Men and Fantastic Four character rights are Disney's and, ultimately, they will be back in the hands of those at Marvel, which is also owned by Disney. The future of the franchises and these characters are, more or less, in the hands of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige now. With that, many of the projects that were in the works at Fox prior to the merger are dead in the water.

Dark Phoenix, which is set to hit theaters in June, and The New Mutants, which may wind up just being dumped to a streaming service such as Hulu, are the last two Marvel-related movies that will be released in that version of the continuity, which dates back to the first X-Men movie from 2000. Disney will, undoubtedly, be hitting the reset
