A Critically Panned X-Men Film Is Dominating Disney+ Today

The New Mutants

Disney+ has quite an impressive library of Marvel movies on its service and since Disney’s acquisition of Fox, the X-Men films have been available also. While it isn’t the most beloved Marvel film, one X-Men-based movie is dominating the streaming service right now and that is The New Mutants.

After suffering multiple delays, The New Mutants finally launched in 2020 and offered a different take on the traditional X-Men story. In this film, five mutants are being held in a hospital facility against their will. After discovering some dark secrets of what is truly going on within the facility the team attempts to use their powers to command an escape.

The film has quite a familiar cast for streaming and TV enthusiasts starring Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, The Queen’s Gambit’s Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton among others.

Upon launching, The New Mutants was slammed by critics garnering just a 36 percent Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes, though audiences favored it slightly more with the audience score currently sitting at 56 percent.

While it may not be the best account of X-Men characters to hit screens, If you’re a superhero fan looking for something a little different this weekend then why not check out The New Mutants which is free to stream with a Disney+ membership.

    Not on Disney+, it’s on HBO MAX

    1. Sladey69says:

      Read that sentence back again: free to stream with a Disney+ membership🤦‍♂️

      1. Dougsays:

        Some movies on Disney+ cost extra even with a subscription

      2. Sheldonsays:

        Not on Disney plus, what do they block certain states?

    2. Dougsays:

      It is on Disney

      1. dominiclymansays:

        I get paid more than $90 to $100 per hour for working online. I heard about this job 3 months ago and after joining this I have earned easily $10k from this without having online working skills . Simply give it a shot on

        the accompanying site…..__𝐖𝐰𝐰.𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬.𝐜𝐨𝐦

      2. Tasssays:

        It absolutely is not

  2. Almsays:

    Full of “woke” anti white garbage. I like how they had a white person make a racist comment to a minority, then edited out the part where she made a racist comment. Trash

    1. Mikesays:

      Shut up hows that

    2. The Rocksays:

      @Alm Well, no one cares really because the movie itself was so bad that nobody saw it.

    3. Your a jackass…woke isnt anti white…it’s anti racism

      1. Nope! Being “woke” is just an extension of critical race theory. Under CTR only whites can be racist.

      2. Kermitsays:

        Right, but your is spelled you’re……… Lends towards credibility.

      3. Rangersays:

        Ok so you’d be cool with a white guy doing a show called dear black people it’s patently true perfectly acceptable to be racist so long as you hate white people you can either make a pretty good career of it you don’t believe me just ask Eddie Murphy Katt Williams Martin Lawrence Charlemagne Dave Chappelle oh yeah and the chick from dear white people really I could go on for hours and hours don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that African Americans don’t have a genuine beef but the woke movement is decidedly anti-white though I didn’t really see anything in this movie that was patently racist the white girl who was harassing the Native American wasn’t doing it because she was Native American she was doing it because she was a b**** a crazy b**** at that

    4. Me too..I'm awake!says:

      Yes u are trash

    5. ComeOnBunnysays:

      If you think the movie is anti-white it is because you are projecting. The movie is far from woke as in the comics Cecilia and Roberto are black. The Vietnamese lesbian who was leader of the New Mutants isn’t in the film at all. Also Illyana was the best character in the film racist remarks and all.

    6. Greysays:

      Absolutely agree 1000% sick of all this white washing of films and society. Not supporting this trash.

    7. Trump is a moronsays:

      How can anything be anti white? We whites take whatever we want away from minorities and there is nothing anyone can call us to shame us. You’re a wuss if you feel discriminated against you Nancy boy.

      1. Tired of the hatesays:

        Wow…as racist and homophobic as can be. Your comment is what is wrong with the left, it’s everyone else’s fault. Pathetic. Being woke is another way to say anti-white. That being said not everyone white is racist or everyone black is a fill in the blank. Racism and bigotry is stupid and a terrible waste of breath. I don’t have to be ” woke ” to know that. Hate comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. You know that just from your comment. Less Hate and more talk. BTW the movie was pretty good. Every show and movie now days has woke and anti white messages, as well as let’s fix it ourselves messages. Just turn off your which ever side you are leaning and just watch.

    8. Gamersays:

      You’re really showing off your brain cells if you think “woke” is actually a thing. Yikes y’all are everywhere. Get some education please

    9. Woke🤣 Man you ignorant people are so embarrassing

    10. It’s meant to show racism is all in the mind; many forget that before African individuals were “held as slaves”, Israelites, Chinese and many other cultures were found to hold slaves and worst of all were forced to work themselves to death, not given homes and quite literally treated worse than animals.

  3. The Strangersays:

    I saw it and thought it was really cool

    1. Munkeyfusays:

      One of my favorite comic book teams, movie wasn’t half bad. No movie will ever follow the books, ever. Two different things altogether movies can’t be the books books can never have cgi and all the other cool stuff we like in movies. Oh and the dumb fuck anti-white nonsense person. Ummm, just be thankful all the other people on this planet with a bit more melatonin in their skin don’t treat us “white folk” as bad as we treat everyone else. And Critical Race Theory is not what you describe it to be. Stop watching YouTube videos thinking its fact and realize it was put there by someone as fucking stupid as yourself. Now go play in the road

    2. Sheldonsays:

      I’m sorry for your head injury, God bless and Good Luck

  4. 144says:

    The movie sucked. Seems like X-Men needs to step it up

  5. #wevegotthisclickbaitedsays:

    Home of the Click-Bait, the title says “A Critically Panned X-Men Film Is Dominating Disney+” but the article just gives info about the release we already knew, how is it “dominating Disney+”

    1. Avalonsays:

      Agreed… this is hardly what I’d call an “X-men” film.
      Total clickbait.

  6. OmegaHuntersays:

    It’s not on Disney +. It’s on HBO Max right now for the time being.

    1. Dougsays:

      I just saw it on Disney+

      1. Darknesssays:

        Oh really that’s not true, since I’ve been searching for it on Disney plus everyday and still not on there

  7. Billsays:

    Movie was awful. I wasted a piece of my life

    1. Sméagolsays:

      I agree 💯%. One of the worst films I’ve ever seen. I wish I had more hands, so I could give it 4 thumbs down. 👎👎

  8. Bartolosays:

    No research went into this article. Shameful.

  9. Vibesays:

    It wasn’t terrible, but it felt like it was missing an entire third act. Also, Mr. Galloway, skilled researcher of Rotten Tomatoes, fyi the movie currently streams on HBOMax, not Disney+. Guess that journalism degree is really paying off. 🙄

    1. Duckiesays:

      It is indeed on Disney+, I watched it, and I don’t even HAVE HBO Max.

      1. Coyotesays:

        Where do you live? I ask because I’m on Disney+ right now and it isn’t on here.

  10. Nah, the movie was terrible. I watched it. It’s probably getting a lot of views because everyone is telling their friends how god awful it is and they’re like “it can’t be that bad, I gotta see this” and then after watching it they’re like yep – it was the bad. Then they tell someone else and the cycle repeats.

    1. *that

  11. Bibsays:

    Not on the service yet

  12. Grimmsays:

    It wasn’t a bad film. I enjoyed it a hell of alot more than Dark Pheonix!!

  13. Grimmsays:

    It wasn’t a bad film. In fact, I thought it was a helluva lot better than Dark Pheonix!!

  14. Mwtsays:

    It’s was garbage…. u can’t compare this movie with the other xmen movies this one just sucked all togather

  15. Joesays:

    Thanks for the heads up guys. I’ll be sure to avoid it.

  16. Jasonsays:

    Saw it, was actually way better than I was expecting

    1. Realistsays:

      Not sure how that’s possible, unless you were expecting the video from The Ring, where you die after watching it! Otherwise, it’s f-ing terrible and can’t get exceed expectations…

  17. Campersays:

    Woke movies suck. Guess I’m racist

    1. No you’re just stupid

    2. And ignorant

  18. White boysays:

    I don’t know what Disney plus you’re talkin about, but the one that I have does not have this show. Nice try, but no points this round morons.

    1. Dougsays:

      I just saw it on Disney

      1. Sheldonsays:

        Just looked, not on Disney plus US, unless their blocking certain states

  19. I read the comics did u?says:

    Do any of you know who the “new mutants” are? Do any of u actually READ the comics? This movie got all of that right. Stop listening to ur stupid comic movie friends who think they know comic stuff and actually read the source material. Movie is pretty damn good.

    1. Bleuleperchaunsays:

      I read the comics its my favorite team once they become x-force and they did not get a thing right. Missing one major character turning two gay that are not. Adding lockheed to this team and not Katie ok. It was was formed by Charles Xavier not Mister sinister. WTF did you think they got right. This article got more right then that movie.

      1. Neilsays:

        Who is Katie? If you mean Kitty Pryde, she wasn’t in the New Mutants (but I agree that neither was Lockheed). It was a shame that they didn’t expand it more to include more characters, but I thought it hit the spirit of the comic well (especially the Demon Bear storyline).
        Making 2 of the characters gay was fine, though a bit cheesily done.
        I loved it, personally.

  20. Pookiesays:

    The movie sucked. And you asses need to be awake. Denying the truth stops you from changing. People do not like the truth because it brings their fuckups to light. Stop fucking up and problem solved

  21. Patricksays:

    Its not on Disney plus. “We got this covered” is crap.

  22. Patricksays:

    Its not on Disney plus. We got this covered is crap.

  23. Greysays:

    Once is enough. I’ll pass.

  24. Bucksays:

    New mutants isn’t on Disney plus. This is a garbage article

  25. Captainsays:

    Movie is atrocious

  26. Henrysays:

    I have Disney Plus and The New Mutants is nowherw to be found. Are you certain your info is for real?

  27. An-Dsays:

    It’s ‘dominating’ on the platform now because, if you actually watched the movie, instead of listening to idiots who didn’t watch the movie, it was actually pretty good.
    Idiots have too much to say about things they know nothing about, people have been boycotting the film years before it was released.
    Stop letting others make your decisions, think for yourself.

  28. Lando Tuckersays:

    Any comments with the word ‘woke’….just yeee-aawnn. Or, ‘blah blah Disney blah blah political correctness blah blah blah cancel culture blah blah,’ You feel that way, and other people do, good for you and them, but also no-one else cares. So, why waste time on messageboards for a brand and product you hate when you could be more happily engaged watching Hannity?

    Instead, maybe talk about the movie. And/or the platform that it’s on: maybe even be helpful to geekdom? Please see below.

    Disney+ in the UK, is horrible and over-priced
    Flat, it’s £7 per month. And then you pony up an additional £19.99 for first run movies (e.g. Black Widow). I wish someone had told ME that before I subscribed to the House of Global Monopoly Capitalism. Sorry, I meant House of Mouse.

    As New Mutants is not a D+ premiere (in the UK, it was a first run on Sky and – I think – Amazon Prime) there should NOT be any additional charge. Shouldn’t.

    I really liked New Mutants. If you know the comic, it’s pretty goddamn faithful, and unlike every Fox X-Men movie after first class, it stood on its own nicely. It’s not perfect. It will always be seen as ‘another bad pre-MCU X-Men movie’, because many critics judged New Mutants by how bad Fox’s X-Men films had got. It’s not Avengers: Infinity War or Batman: Dark Knight Rises and it has clearly been produced and reimagined to death. Director’s name should be listed as Allan Smythee. BUT!! I still really enjoyed it. All the actors are very good and give an effective and committed performance. If you know early 1980’s Marvel, you probably know how good, and how revolutionary New Mutants was (up to around#50) especially with Bill Sienkiwicz’s absolutely insane, form-destroying, surrealist artwork and Chris Claremont’s tight-as-a-drum narrative.

    The film doesn’t crap over that, and it works at the level it works at. That maybe tautology, but New Mutants has been really unfairly treated. It won’t change your life, but unlike, say Aquaman, Shazam, Venom, Deadpool 2 it won’t kill your day.

  29. Cuckholdsays:

    The article is a lie saying its on disney+

  30. Darknesssays:

    I have a Disney plus membership and it’s not on Disney plus.

  31. Rangersays:

    This movie is not on Disney Plus it’s on HBO Max so clearly somebody is either lying a or f****** moron quite possibly both
