Anya Taylor-Joy And Maisie Williams Confirmed For New Mutants

It's official! Anya Taylor Joy and Maisie Williams have joined the New Mutants cast. Who else will join the 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 incredible talents. The film will be directed by Josh Boone who also co-wrote script with Knate Gwaltney.

Maisie Williams, of Game of Thrones, will play Wolfsbane: "a girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf". Hmm, we wonder if someone from the studio was reading our list of New Mutants requirements.

Taylor-Joy is in the midst of a rapid career climb after the double whammy of her breakout role in The Witch, which earned the actress a BAFTA nomination, and the surprise sensation that is M.

Powers: Mystical armor, psionic shields, well-versed in sorcery, ability to teleport through her Stepping Discs and total control over her own alternate dimension, called Limno.

Here's some fun news for all you X-Men fans: Fox has finally began casting for New Mutants and revealed the initial actors who have signed on.

Taylor-Joy will be playing the part of the latter, Magik.

New Mutants has some new stars. Taylor-Joy will portray Illyana Nikolievna Alexandria Rasputina, a.k.a. Magik, while Williams will breathe life into Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane.

The X-Men universe has been in dire need of some fresh faces lately and this lineup of mutants sounds like they could definitely revive the X-Men universe.

New Mutants is due out on April 13, 2018, so we can expect the rest of that cast to come together very soon. Other characters include Cannonball, Moonstar, Sunspot, and Warlock.
