Are we getting a Game of Thrones reunion for X-Men spinoff New Mutants?

Could we be seeing a Game of Thrones reunion in the X-Men spinoff New Mutants?

A tweet from director Josh Boone suggests that Sophie Turner will join Maisie Williams after he shared a photo of some art depicting Maisie as Rahne Sinclair, aka shapeshifting mutant Wolfsbane.

Previously, Boone promised “some familiar faces” in New Mutants, which would also seem to lend weight to the rumours that Alexandra Shipp and James McAvoy will return as their X-Men: Apocalypse characters Storm and Professor X.

New Mutants is yet to receive an official release date, although Fox has earmarked both November 2018 and February 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
