The Avengers: Infinity War trailer will arrive by the end of 2017 and the X-Men franchise’s New Mutants trailer will drop tomorrow.

Fandango’s Erik Davis reports Kevin Feige confirmed to him personally the trailer will arrive “before the end of the year.” Speculation fueled rumors claiming the trailer would arrive during the Marvel’s Inhumans premiere, but that did not happen. Frustrated fans begged the trailer drop during New York Comic Con, and that didn’t happen either. Feige simply reminded everyone to be patient.

With Thor: Ragnarok less than a month away, it’s safe to say the Infinity War trailer will arrive sometime after the film’s premiere. The two movies will be heavily intertwined and fans should have a better idea about what to expect in Infinity War after they watch Thor, making the trailer release even more epic.

As for New Mutants, the news comes from the director himself. Josh Boone posted on Instagram: “There’s Something New To Fear #tomorrow #newmutants #teaser #xmen #thenewmutants #fridaythe13th.”The photo reveals the teaser will drop at 12:01 a.m. PST.

A Friday the 13th release does not come as a surprise given the film falls in the horror genre. 20th Century Fox CEO Stacey Snider described the film as a “haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers.”

“It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention/ Cuckoo’s Nest institutional setting,” Snider told Variety. “It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers. We haven’t seen it as a superhero movie whose genre is more like The Shining than 'we’re teenagers let’s save the world.'”

Cannonball, Magik, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage and Warlock are expected to be this incarnation’s team of New Mutants. If you need a refresher on these characters, check out our roundup. For more on Avengers: Infinity War, read about how Thor impacts the MCU timeline here.
