Though it’s scheduled to land this August, The New Mutants is still shrouded in a lot of secrecy. Once a very promising installment in Fox’s apparently thriving X-Men franchise, now it threatens to send the universe out with a whimper as Disney hoovers up the studio. Reports and rumors haven’t painted an encouraging portrait of the film so far, but one new detail might just raise fans’ hopes a little bit.
According to the Twitter account New Mutants Updates, someone who viewed a test screening of the movie has revealed it features a lesbian romance between two of the superpowered kids held in the secret facility. Specifically, the star-crossed teens are Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams) and Danielle Moonstar/Mirage (Blu Hunt).
