New Mutants Casts Maisie Williams And Anna-Taylor Joy

Anya Taylor-Joy, the star of The Witch and Split, and Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams have signed on to star in the ensemble young adult superhero movie being directed by Josh Boone. "Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock". This film centers around a comic based on a group of mutants still in training, later volumes of the comic had the group associated as Xavier's students.

Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the world of Westeros, joined the X-Men universe past year when she appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse as telepath Jean Grey. As her name is that of a plant considered by most superstitions to be poisonous to werewolves, it will be interesting to see how her inner conflicts will be resolved. Williams, known for her role as Arya Stark on the HBO hit Game of Thrones, will portray Wolfsbane, a lycanthrope struggling to reconcile her powers with her religious beliefs. She has the ability to turn into a wolf.

Taylor-Joy has been cast as Magik, a Russian teen who can travel through time and space with the aid of teleportation discs.

These are only two members of the team though - one that's expected to be comprised of other heroes like Danielle Moonstar, Sunspot and Cannonball - so more major casting announcements are sure to be our way.

Director Josh Boone confirmed the choice on Thursday when he posted concept art of Williams as Wolfsbane on Twitter. The series is notable for being the first spin-off of the X-Men comics. Last month, the film got the release date of April 13, 2018, less than a year from now.
