Men spin-off New Mutants casts Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams

After a year of those rumors, her casting for the X-Men spinoff movie New Mutants has finally been confirmed, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Thankfully, Fox went back on their word on Thursday and announced that both Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy from The Witch will be joining the film slated for April 13, 2018.

New Mutants is looking to begin production in July on a script written by Boone and Knate Gwaltney. Taylor-Joy will play Magik, a sorceress born Illyana Nikolievna Rasputin who can teleport through time and space, and who is the sister of pre-existing X-hero Colossus.

10 people shot during memorial for earlier Chicago death
The month before, an 8-year-old girl was shot in the arm while attending a vigil for a 14-year-old friend shot earlier. Police said 26-year-old Daniel Cordova, a gang member, was shot and killed at 4:30 a.m.

Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, the comic series introduced a new crop of mutant characters born with special powers. As her name suggests, Magik has powers of sorcery and teleportation. She has the ability to turn into a wolf.

Williams is best known for her role as Arya Stark on HBO's Game Of Thrones. Taylor-Joy, meanwhile, was very optimistic about taking on the Magik role in conversation with CS earlier this year.

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. Furthermore, Fox is also searching for "ethnically appropriate actors to play the Native American Moonstar and the South American Sunspot". The feature is expected to be a departure from the sci-fi-action spectacle of other X-Men films and is instead being described as a "Stephen King meets John Hughes"-style horror movie".
