Last month “Game of Thrones” actress Maisie Williams was reported by HitFix as being cast as the mutant Wolfsbane in director Josh Boone’s upcoming NEW MUTANTS spin-off. 20th Century Fox quickly extinguished that rumor, telling Nerdist that it wasn’t true. Still, the actress tells Entertainment Weekly that she’d be interested in joining the film, which follows young adult mutants surviving in a world that fears and hates their kind.
“I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family,” Williams said about possibly joining the film. “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.”
In the comics, Wolfsbane is a Scottish girl who could transform into a wolf-like creature at will.
