Meanwhile Maisie Williams will be playing Wolfsbane. Wolfsbane has been described as the following.
“A girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf.”
Here’s some other information we’ve learned from The Hollywood Reporter article.
“The pic will focus on the angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock.”
For those worried that Danielle Moonstar and Sunspot won’t be their ethnicity, THR article stating this news added the following.
Fox is making serious efforts to find ethnically appropriate actors, conducting wide searches for a Native American to play Moonstar and a South American for Sunspot.
So as a fan of these characters I’m proud to see that Fox is making an effort to cast actual Native and South American actors for these roles. Finally, the film is set to release April 13, 2018. Like always sound off down below with your thoughts. Do you have any actors you want to see play this group of X-Men? Until next time, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
