Maisie Williams addresses the New Mutants rumours PLUS Three new X-Men: Apocalypse videos

April 22nd, 2016 by Marc Comments


So a few weeks ago we reported that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams may be up for a role in the upcoming New Mutants movie.

The movie will be set in the X-Men universe and will feature a new, younger team of mutants and ir rumoured to have Fualt in Our Stars director Josh Boone attached.

It was rumoured at the time that Williams may be up for the role of Wolfsbane, a shapeshifter. However very little else was heard after that.

Now the young star herself has spoken about the rumour and it seems to us she’s being a little cagey: “I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, to be a part of the Marvel family. New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.”

What say you? With her onscreen sister in Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner the new Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, it would certainly be interesting to have Arya and Sansa Stark in the X-Men.

In related news,  a few new TV Spots/videos have appeared online for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Check them out below:

Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, the Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.

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….
