Consider this when deciding whether to brave COVID to see THE NEW MUTANTS: the filmmakers couldn't even be bothered in the 3 years it sat on a shelf to spell co-creator Bob McLeod's name correctly. pic.twitter.com/gBim4oKh3g— Amazing Spider-Talk (@SupSpiderTalk) August 28, 2020
Artist Bob McLeod, who co-created the New Mutants with writer Chris Claremont, has seen the film and he is not pleased with it.
He was not a fan of the characters being introduced in a horror film. He didn't like the way the characters were designed differently than he made them, especially Roberto not being played by a dark-skinned Afro-Brazilian actor.
But the worst: they spelled his name wrong.
The film grossed $750k last night in previews and is estimating a $8-10 million weekend.
