It doesn't take a seer to recognize that super hero movies have exploded in the past decade, but 'The New Mutants' is an upcoming film that has found a novel way to explore the genre, despite how many movies have come before it. The film, which will be set in Marvel's X-Men universe, will fall under the category of horror -- a massive stylistic jump from the other super hero movies in Marvel's stable.

Most super hero movies stick close to the model set up by the comic books that inspired them. They're light, with bloodless violence and fun action that makes them suitable for kids. Movies like 'Deadpool' and 'Logan' strayed slightly from that formula, offering up R-rated fare, but those films are still either comedy or action in terms of genre. The New Mutants brings an interesting, heretofore unseen spin on superpowers.
