(May 2016) Due to Dylan O'Brien's injury during filming, which he sustained in March 2016, and his eventual recovery, the release date of the movie, originally slated for February 17th, 2017, was postponed to January 12th, 2018. Filming for this film was immediately halted after O'Brien was hospitalized.
Spoiler: It is hinted in the second Death Cure trailer that the film will follow Newt's original book ark. This is seen by the black veins visible on his neck, and the bags under his eyes. In the book, He begins to into a Crank due to his blood not having immunity to the flare and Thomas must kill him before he fully turns.
