Report: Maisie Williams Cast in the X-Men New Mutants Movie
Is Arya Stark joining her sister in the X-Men universe? Rumor has it that Maisie Williams has been cast as one of the first three New Mutants, along with up-and-coming actress Anya Taylor-Joy and Alexandra Shipp, reprising her role as Storm.

According to the report from Hitfix, Williams has been cast as Wolfsbane, while Taylor-Joy has been tapped for Magik (which seems fitting, considering she's best known for starring in The Witch). Wolfsbane is essentially a werewolf, as she has the ability to turn into a wolf or enter a transitional state between human and wolf. Magik is Colossus' younger sister, who has the ability to teleport.

Hitfix also claimed that Cannonball, Sunspot, and Mirage will complete the roster, which means a fairly traditional line-up. Although, we would be very surprised if the final line-up didn't also include Negasonic Teenage Warhead, especially since Simon Kinberg said we would seeing "familiar faces" from the movies. He could have just meant Storm, I suppose, but then why was Negasonic Teenage Warhead wearing a New Mutants costume?

There's no official release date for the New Mutants movie, which will be directed by Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone, but it is rumored to be the untitled X-Men film coming out on June 13, 2018.
