Wolfsbane and Magik First Cast Announcements for X-Men: New Mutants

There were rumors over a year ago about the casting for Wolfsbane and Magik in the upcoming X-Men: The New Mutants and only now have those rumors been confirmed. Wolfsbane will be played by Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams and the role of Magik will be filled by Split star Anya Taylor-Joy.

The role Maisie Williams fills is Rahne Sinclair, a Scottish mutant known as Wolfsbane, that can transform into a human-wolf hybrid.

Anya Taylor-Joy will be portraying Russian mutant, Illyana Nikolievna Rasputin, who is the younger sister of Colossus. Magik has the power of teleportation that allows her to travel through space and time.

There are also rumors circulating about other cast members, but nothing has been confirmed. According to Tweets by Borys Kit from the Hollywood Reporter, earlier reports of James McAvoy and Nat Wolff are false.
