Josh Boone Seemingly Confirms ‘New Mutants’ Lineup Rumor; Reveals Warlock

A couple months back HitFix had reported that New Mutants would include James McAvoy‘s Charles Xavier and Alexandra Shipp‘s Storm, while that has yet to be confirmed something else from that original report has.


New Mutants co-writer and presumptive director Josh Boone has posted images of what looks to be the character lineup of the film on his Instagram account. They indeed include Wolfsbane, Magik, Mirage, Sunspot, Cannonball and he even adds alien Warlock.

The latter is a new addition as the previous report from HitFix never mentioned Warlock, who in the comics was sort of the comedic relief of the team and would be our first alien character introduced.

Our assumption is that he’s giving fans an idea of what to expect lineup-wise concerning the film, as it would be odd if he was posting random images of the team. He’s posted updates about the film in the past, including announce a second completed draft of the script.
