Josh Boone has just posted several “New Mutants” photos online. Could these be the characters he intend to use in his upcoming movie?
According to Cinema Blend, this could be the “obvious implication” of Boone’s posts. However, the director did not really confirm anything. He merely posted these photos with hashtags denoting the characters’ names. Collider, meanwhile, suggests the movie might at least include Magik, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Warlock.
It isn’t clear if these are really all the characters Boone will include in the movie. However, his Instagram posts did capture the attention of a lot of die-hard fans. Some of them have started suggesting characters they want to see on the big screen. “[Please] add Karma…It would be awesome to have an important Asian superhero on the big screen. [And] she’s great rep for the LGBT community,” one fan wrote.
Others have taken to suggesting actors Boone can cast for the movie. One actress whose name cropped up in the comments is Maisie Williams. Williams is known for her role in “Game of Thrones.” Will she cross over fandoms and join “New Mutants” as well? It must be noted that these are just fan suggestions. No official word as of yet to confirm this. Stay tuned for updates.
“New Mutants” will be an adaptation of the Marvel comic book series by Bob McLeod and Chris Claremont. A release date for this movie has yet to be confirmed. Meanwhile, the movie’s director has three other film projects lined up right now. Boone is set to direct two Stephen King classics, “The Stand” and “Revival.” He will also direct a reboot of Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles.”
