Following an update on the 20th Century Fox X-Men spinoff feature film earlier today, HitFix is reporting that three actors have already signed on to join the New Mutants cast.

The outlet claims that not only will Alexandra Shipp‘s Storm (who makes her debut in this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse) and James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier play major roles, but that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and The Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy will play Wolfsbane and Magick, respectively. What’s more, the report says that Cannonball, Mirage and Sunspot are all featured characters. Sunspot previously appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, played by Adan Canto.

Directed by The Fault in Our Stars‘ Josh Boone, New Mutants adapts the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982. Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, The New Mutants follows on a group of teenage mutants as heroes in training in the Marvel Universe.

    Didn't know this was being made, I'm skeptical but considering I liked the last two X-Men films its in a more positive way.

    My boy Cannonball possibly on the big screen, hope Thunderbird/Warpath gets in too.

    Team I would like it to at least be based around. Strong line up to cherry pick from.

    If they can keep Singer away from this, there's hope... and if McAvoy and Shipp are really on board for feature roles and not Sam Jackson once-a-season guest roles, there might actually be some solid continuity for the X-Men universe for once.

    Won't shit on this...

    Negasonic was given Cannonball's powers in the Deadpool movie. They'll need to an emphasis on his flight and invincibility to separate the two.

    Boone posted a number of images of the different team members, including:
    Magik, sister of Colossus and a powerful sorceress capable of teleporting;
    Wolfsbane, who can change into a Lycanthrope at will;
    Dani Moonstar aka Cheyenne/Mirage, who can visualize other’s thoughts, especially their fears;
    Cannonball, who can thrust himself and fly with an energy propulsion;
    Sunspot, who can absorb and channel solar radiation to both fly and create energy blasts; and
    Warlock,a techno-organic being capable of changing size and shapes.

    Basically the O5 of the New Mutants but with Warlock substituting for Xian Coy Manh/Karma and Magik added.

    (Man, they managed to both make Cannonball's power sound really dirty and not emphasize his invincibility while "thrusting himself".)

    This lin-upe seems...weird, if only because it's weird to see Warlock so prominent with Cypher mentioned nowhere at all. As lame as Doug's powers seem to most people, given how computer-oriented things are nowadays, I'm surprised he's not in the movie even if it's just as the stereotypical Hollywood (magi-)tech guy.

    I suppose it's also weird see to Warlock without getting into the whole Phalanx storyline and its horror elements as well as seeing what's presumably grown up Illyana without the Limbo-induced trauma if Magik is listed as a "powerful sorceress".

    Yeah, its wierd to have lock but no Doug.
    Hopefully, he can either be in a sequel.

    They'll get a super mixed person who is can pass for native/hispanic like the guy who played Warpath in DOFP.

    Though, I have to give them a bit of credit for Wolverine 2.
    90% of the main Japanese characters were still Japanese, barring Harada as he was played by Will Yun Lee (Korean IIRC).

    An X-men movie will film in Montreal for the third time.
    While DOFP and XMApoc filmed there and the article says the 7th film, it seems that the film is more likely to be NM.

    Official Title is: X-men: The New Mutants

    It will begin filming in Montreal starting May 2017 for a 2018 release.


    Director Josh Boone's comments:
    "We had loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had Demon Bear. It was really dark, interesting, and different from the typical X-Men stories that we had read. After I made The Fault in Our Stars, we made Fox a comic book. It walked them through a trilogy of New Mutant films that would build on each other. We used this program called Comic Life, and took all the images we had loved from the series and strung them together to show them the movie we wanted to do. We brought it to Simon and he really liked it.

    We’ve been going for the past year and a half to get it ready, and I’m about to go location scout and we have a release date now."

    No Ryan Reynolds to save this one.

    Or Wolfsbane. It's not hard to get that shit right. Take a cute chick (check!), spirit-gum fake downy hair to her face, cgi her pupils golden, paint her nose black and put quarter-inch long extension caps on her canines. There ya go. Takes less work and time to apply than Kelsey Grammar's Beast makeup or that X-2 Nightcrawler costume. She doesn't get a full-on true werewolf hybrid form until later in life. I don't expect that shit to look as awesome as the effects in movies with smaller budgets (since Marvel movies often miss the mark on easy stuff...somehow), since Rahne changes to a lesser degree in hybrid form during her stint with The New Mutants (as opposed to her just plain being a badass in X-Factor), but they should at least use their heads on this.

    Some cool yet random casting news...

    Rosario Dawson to play X-men character Dr. Cecilia Reyes

    Marvel/DC/Fox.. Rosario is playing all sides lol



    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/x-men-spinoff-new-mutants-cast-rosario-dawson-talks-star-1003192

    Dawson will play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself. The character assumes a mentor role for the group of fledgling heroes. (Last year, speculation surfaced that James McAvoy would return as mentor Professor X and that Alexandra Shipp would return as mentor figure Storm, but those characters are not in the script, according to sources, and the actors are not slated to appear in the movie.)

    I thought the Henry Zaga casting was still up in the air;I usually follow superhero hype for casting stuff and they didnt have an article on it IIRC.

    If true, that's incredibly disappointing.
    Im glad the actor is Brazilian, but as the only black character of the original group whose race does play an integral part in his character, its a slap in the face.

    sooo i didnt know this was being filmed in massachusetts. one of the guys i train jiu jitsu with whos a fireman was talking about it. he was working on the airforce base they apparently filmed a scene for.

    he said one of the last scenes involves a chick with a flaming sword flying possibly chasing a werewolf(most likely wolfsbane). Its a snowcovered scene.
