Hello my friends. It appears as another Stark is leaving Westeros for the land of Mutants, Singer-style. Per a report from THR, Maisie Williams has been cast alongside Anya Taylor-Joy in the eagerly-anticipated awaited X-Men: New Mutants directed by Josh Boone. Maisie Williams will channel her inner direwolf as Rahne Sinclair / Wolfsbane and Taylor-Joy is Colossus' little sister, Illyana Nikolievna Alexandria Rasputina / Magik.
I'm absolutely love the New Mutants and this casting news is pretty effing outstanding, and it only gets me pumped to see who else will sign on to the team as we also now know which Xavier students will be on the team.
Josh Boone and his long-time writing partner Knate Gwaltney (Lee) will be writing the script. I realize these guys might not have a lot of credits to their names, but the optimism levels are still high for this film.
X-Men: New Mutants has a release date of April 13, 2018, so production should get rolling soon and that means we'll get more casting announcements in the near future. No plot details were given, but it's rumored the movie will adapt the incredible Demon Bear saga from the comics. So, that's awesome. What do you think?
