Anya Taylor-Joy confirms new character in The New Mutants
With The New Mutants being delayed from April 13, 2018 to February 14, 2019, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Thoroughbreds) confirmed in an interview with The Playlist that there will be a new character added to the movie along with the reshoots.
Taylor-Joy is part of the ensemble cast of young stars that will portray the misfit mutants in the teen horror movie. According to the interview, she expressed frustration with the delays.
“Well, the only thing that I could say, without being in trouble, is that it being delayed is disappointing, frustrating in fact.”
She did show optimism for the changes being made to the film, dropping the confirmation about a new character being added to the movie.
“I do think that there is a great responsibility to make sure the movie is done right and that we deliver the fans something that they can all feel happy about and excited about. So, I don’t think it being delayed is a bad thing because it’s definitely more important to make sure that we get it right than rushing to make a date. So, hopefully, all of these reshoots and adding of the new character that will give the fans an altogether satisfactory, wonderful product.”
Rumors point to the new character being Warlock, a shapeshifting alien that was part of the core team in the comics.
The New Mutants also stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Blu Hunt (The Originals), Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why, Teen Wolf) and Alice Braga (City of God, Queen of the South).
