The New Mutants: James McAvoy at the casting?

While promoting Split, the 20-year-old was asked about 20th Century Fox's upcoming X-Men spin-off New Mutants, a title she has been linked to in recent months. No casting has been officially announced (though there are plenty of rumors swirling about), and while an animatic unveiled Demon Bear as the big villain, plot details remain pretty scarce otherwise.

James McAvoy has undertaken a gargantuan task by playing the role of a man grappling with 23 split personalities in M. Night Shyamalan's newest cinematic entry, Split. She was first asked about her own role, but then asked about whether she hopes to reunite with current co-star McAvoy in New Mutants. Legion is getting ready to take the small screen by storm on FX, and news is starting to pick up regarding another long-rumored adaptation - Josh Boone's New Mutants.

The most interesting thing she revealed? Anya is to play the New Mutant Magik, who in the comics is the younger sister of Colossus.

X-Men: Apocalypse was the third and final film included in the contract signed by Lawrence, Fassbender, McAvoy and Hoult.

Browns clinch No. 1 pick in 2017 National Football League draft
But first, they had to make it through the game against the Browns (1-15) without suffering any other major injuries. The defeat, however, did not deter team owner Jimmy Haslam from saying the program will work if given more time .

Taylor-Joy managed to remain coy as to her involvement in the movie however, casually stating: "I'm a big fan so I'd love to be a part of it". I cannot say too much, but I would love to be part of it. "I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn't he?". One of these actresses is Anya Taylor-Joy, who just sounded off about the movie. This is assuming that X-Men: The New Mutants will follow up on the 80s setting of Apocalypse, quite possibly giving us the first truly 90s X-Men film that could tap into the franchise's explosive popularity during that decade.

Hopefully, that means we'll be hearing a lot more about New Mutants this year, with Taylor-Joy's involvement, as she was excellent in The Witch. "I think this year's gonna be very exciting". While it was pretty obvious considering the fact that the team is consisted of Xavier's graduates, we weren't exactly sure whether or not Foxwas going to bring McAvoy back.

Nat Wolff (The Fault In Our Stars) is said to be in talks to play Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball too.
