It's Official! Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams Join New Mutants Cast

It's Official! Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams Join New Mutants Cast

Anya Taylor-Joy is known for her roles in The Witch and M. Night Shyamalan's Split, both of which show her unbelievable talents. The original New Mutants comic was created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod in the "80s, and the movie version will be directed by Josh Boone". Wolfsbane struggles to embrace her lupine powers, because they come into conflict with her religious beliefs. Taylor-Joy is playing Magik, the sister of Colossus who has teleportation powers.

New Mutants will follow the wild adventures of the group of teens. Magik can teleport herself and others from one location to another by stepping into a transitional dimension known as Limbo, teleport across time as well as through space, and eventually became the sorceress supreme of Limbo in the comics.

Fox makes an official (and exciting) casting decision for the highly anticipated X-Men spinoff, New Mutants. Taylor-Joy, meanwhile, was very optimistic about taking on the Magik role in conversation with CS earlier this year. Longtime X-Men franchise produce Simon Kingberg will produce with Karen Rosenfelt. Last month, the film got the release date of April 13, 2018, less than a year from now. She has the ability to turn into a wolf.




The film is expected to begin shooting in in July.

If those names sound familiar, it's because both Williams and Taylor-Joy were rumored to be joining the film back in March of 2016, but 20th Century Fox shot down the story. Now the hunt is on to cast the remaining teenagers, which includes Moonstar, Sunspot, Mirage, Warlock, and Cannonball.
