The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Feb 27, 2022

It's time for some fun while we revisit what we feel is an unfairly criticized film, and one that was skipped and forgotten a couple years back... The New Mutants. 20th Century Fox, before the merger, had big plans for this franchise, and friend of the show Brev Tanner joins us to help break down this misunderstood film. Before we talk about the movie, we break down our Top 5 casting choices for the X-Men franchises, but not including Magneto, Professor X, or Wolverine! Some of our choices may surprise you! Then it's off to talk the film! So, grab your dragon puppets, don't forget your bear necklace, and always make out in the pool... it's time for The New Mutants!
