  • “New Mutants” Cast Rumors Denied by Fox

Recently a few rumors about the cast and characters of “New Mutants” circulated in the media. However, Fox has denied each and every one of them.

There is so much fans are hearing about the X-Men spinoff movie “The Mutants” these days from all sorts of sources. Simon Kinberg who will be producing this movie discussed various themes and characters that will be appearing in “The Mutants” in an event last week. 

Yesterday, a report from HitFix claimed that two original characters, “Storm” and “Professor X”, are supposed to appear in the movie. Along with that the report also shared the news about new characters and the actors who were supposed to play those characters.

The report claimed that Maisie Williams from “Game of Thrones” will play the character of Wolfsbane. Anya Taylor Joy was reported to play the character of Magik.

She is famous for playing her role in “The Witch”. This report reached Fox and they instantly denied this news to Nerdist by claiming that none of these character portrayals were true. 

Well, this denial can also be stated in this way that Fox is trying to deflect the attention of reporters from this project until it has been properly announced.

There have been incidents in the past in which Fox denied rumors about the cast of a movie just to reveal everything later on. So it can be said that Fox is denying this news until it finalizes all of the cast members that are going to appear in “New Mutants”. 

Josh Boone the director of “The Fault in Our Stars” is going to be working on this movie as well. He is going to co-write the script of “The Mutants” with Knate Gwaltney.

Boone has shared earlier that the first draft of script of “The Mutants” was completed in October 2015. This movie will be produced by Lauren Shuler-Donner and Simon Kinberg.
