The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone has revealed his utter excitement in regards to his upcoming X-Men film, New Mutants. The spin-off film has been in development for a while now, and recently received huge news, as a production date was settled. The film’s main villain has also been confirmed to be Demon Bear, a psychotic bear who appeared in #18 of the original series in 1984. Boone’s film has been rumoured to star The Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy, Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, and Paper Towns‘ Nat Wolff. It has also been (kinda) confirmed that X-Men: Apocalypse star, James McAvoy, will return to the role of Professor Charles Xavier in the upcoming flick. No word on how big or small his involvement will be.
The film’s director took to Instagram to reveal his excitement in a comedic manner. If you look through the individuals who liked this photo, you will find rumoured star Taylor-Joy. Boone wrote:
