The next evolution of the X-franchise is crewing up. Split’s Anya Taylor-Joy has signed to play sorcerous, teleporting teen Magik while Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams is Wolfsbane, a girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her ability to turn into a wolf. Face it, we can all relate. They’re joined by Teen Wolf’s Henry Zaga as Brazilian mutant Sunspot – behold his power to unleash a blast of pure solar energy from a particularly troublesome zit – while Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton is in the frame for Cannonball. Director Josh Boone promises a markedly different tone for this iteration of the X-verse. “We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe,” he tells Entertainment Weekly. “There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.” No costumes, then? New Mutants: Nude And Dangerous opens 13 April 2018.
