In addition to Apocalypse, Deadpool, Wolverine 3, X-Force and Gambit – we are getting the New Mutants!
As a long time fan of the Uncanny X-Cast, I’ve been hoping for a New Mutants film for the longest time!
That list was made way back in 2009, so none of those actors are probably eligible to play teenagers, as only Tom Welling is capable of not aging in a span of six years.
My idea cast of characters would to be to have all nine of the characters. With a real emphasis on making Dani Moonstar, Illyana Rasputin and Doug Ramsey – the stars of the film. The less Sunspot and Magma, the better but I can only imagine that Susnpot and Cannonball are going to lead the film.
I’m really hoping not too many Non-members make up the cast of the film, especially not the characters that would eventually make up X-Force. Since X-Force would have come out first, I imagine that shouldn’t be a threat. If it was the other way around, I could see the films having an innocent beginning and then graduating them to a harsher reality strike team. Let’s hope it doesn’t go in that direction!
The article states that we are at least three or four years away from production, so it may fall through.
