Did the New Mutants Director Just Reveal the Movie Line-Up?
We've been hearing rumors about the intended line-up for the New Mutants movie for some time, and now director Josh Boone might have finally given us some answers. Last night, he released a series of images of different members of the comics team, and finished up with a group image of Magik, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Sunspot, and Cannonball:

It seems very likely that this is the actual New Mutants team, not only because Boone would know that fans would interpret his posts that way, but because Magik and Wolfsbane have already been heavily rumored. According to a recent report, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams has been cast as Wolfsbane, while The Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy has been (funnily enough) cast as Magik. Although this line-up doesn't technically confirm Williams and Taylor-Joy's casting, it's looking pretty likely that it's true, especially since Williams herself has all but confirmed it

It's also great to see that the gender distribution is so balanced. The above roster includes three women and two men, which would be great anyway, but it will likely be an exact 1:1 ratio. Right after posting that group photo, Boone posted a picture of Warlock, an extraterrestrial New Mutants team member who is often used for fish-out-of-water humor, and would likely serve as the Drax-style comic relief:
