Seems like things are gathering pace on the X-Men movie spin-off New Mutants after producer Simon Kinberg’s teases yesterday. While there’s no more actual news today, HitFix claims its sources have revealed some casting and character coups, including that Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams is set to appear.
According the rumours Williams will play Wolfsbane, while The Witch actress Anya Taylor-Joy will play Magick. The site is also reporting that James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier will make an appearance and Alexandra Shipp will be reprising her role as Storm from X-Men Apocalypse.
And (possibly) answering BUZZ’s speculation yesterday, other New Mutants due to make an appearance are Cannonball, Mirage and Sunspot – all part of the original comic line-up (along with Wolfsbane). Sunspot previously appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, played by Adan Canto; we’re guessing he won’t reprise the role but who knows?
No news on Warlock, yet, but they would only need a voice for him.
We emphasis again: all this must be filed under rumour for the moment.
