There are so many superhero movies in various stages of production at this point that it’s easy to forget about one or two currently in the works. Indeed, I’ll admit a little absent-mindedness when it comes to Josh Boone’s forthcoming New Mutants.
Granted, the film is still in the early stages of pre-production, but it’s nevertheless one of 20th Century Fox’s top priorities, and while Boone and his team have mostly remained quiet on the upcoming flick, the director revealed some intriguing artwork on his official Twitter page this weekend, which ultimately confirms a little bit of casting news.
In the recent Tweet, Boone showed off Wolfsbane as played by Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who’s been rumored to be involved in the project for some time now.

Of course, this photo doesn’t give us everything we need to know, and there’s nothing to say that this will even be the character’s final look in the film, but it is, nevertheless, one of our first peeks into what Boone has in store for us. Based on his past track record, one assumes that this upcoming X-Men spinoff will be different than anything The Fault in Our Stars director has made to date, and with filming set to get underway later this year, we should learn a bit more about it very soon.
Right now, we’re just hoping the film’s more in the vein of Days of Future Past or Deadpool rather than X-Men: Origins: Wolverine or Fantastic Four. When it comes to superhero movies, Fox is known for their successes and failures equally. Something tells us this one will turn out alright, though.
Tell us, are you looking forward to Josh Boone’s New Mutants? If so, what are your thoughts regarding Williams’ soon-to-be official (we assume) casting? Let us know in the usual place.
