After our big November reveal of the Demon Bear animatic from 20th Century Fox‘s New Mutants
movie, we were hoping for a deluge of news on the project. Since then,
though, its been fairly quiet on that front, but today we got the chance
to speak to delightful actress (and recent BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee) Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) at the Split
junket, where she not only confirmed seeing the pre-viz but seemed to
hint that wheels are indeed turning rapidly for a 2017 start date.
“I have [seen the Demon Bear animatic], it’s pretty cool,” Taylor-Joy confirmed. “I’m
a big fan so I’d love to be a part of it. I can’t say very much, but I
would love to be a part of it. I think this year’s gonna be very
When we asked her if she hoped to reunite with her Split co-star James McAvoy as Professor X, she replied, “I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn’t he?”
While it was previously reported that McAvoy’s Professor X could play a major mentor part in The New Mutants, this all but clinches it as a done deal should the movie go forward.
The New Mutants adapts
the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982.
Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, “The New Mutants” follows on a
group of teenage mutants as heroes in training in the Marvel Universe.
Director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars)
is set to helm the feature, which will boast a script by Boone &
Knate Lee and Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber. No other official
announcements have been made, though rumors peg the time period not far
removed from the 1983 setting of X-Men: Apocalypse. Casting points toward Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as Magik, and Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) as Cannonball. Dani Moonstar aka Cheyenne/Mirage, Sunspot and Warlock will also be part of the team.
Our sources indicate the feature will be a big departure from the sci-fi-action spectacle of other X-Men
films and is instead being described as a “Stephen King meets John
Hughes”-style horror movie. A comparison that might make people think of
this summer’s hit series Stranger Things, albeit with even more super powers.
We also learned that New Mutants is being targeted for a spring 2018 release date.

The future of the main X-Men
films is now up in the air, but the franchise as a whole received an
injection of fresh, inventive spunk thanks to last year's R-rated Deadpool. That new wave of edgier, riskier Marvel material will continue with this year's R-rated Logan.
In that film, Patrick Stewart will once again reprise the role of
Charles Xavier for a story set in the near future -- one that seems to
pick up Xavier's journey at a time when he's aged considerably and isn't
in the best shape, both physically and as it pertains to his powers.
But what about the younger Xavier, who we last saw duke it out with Oscar Isaac's Apocalypse in last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.
He was portrayed pretty brilliantly by James McAvoy throughout three
films, and as those central X-Men movies look to continue on, will
McAvoy be a part of them?
When we sat down with the actor to talk about his role in M. Night Shyamalan's Split (in theaters January 20), we asked McAvoy straight up if he's still down for more X-Men movies.
Watch his response below. - video link - http://www.fandango.com/movie-news/james-mcavoy-would-love-to-do-more-x-men-movies-calls-logan-brilliant-751769
"If they offer me a really good part,
I'll be in," he said. "If it's not a very good part, then... I'll think
about it. I love playing Charles, and I've always had interesting things
to do with Charles, so if that continues then of course I'd love to
take part in it."
We also briefly asked him about Logan,
which McAvoy teased, "It's brilliant, it's brilliant -- I'm jealous I'm
not old enough to play Charles like that yet, but I was like, what a
great idea, what a brilliant idea!"
McAvoy may be playing coy, of course, as he is rumored to be reprising the role of Charles Xavier in a New Mutants movie. Also rumored for that film is his Split costar Anya Taylor-Joy, who may have let slip to Coming Soon that McAvoy is definitely a part of the film, saying, “I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn’t he?”
Is he? We'll see.
We'll have much more with McAvoy on the complexities of his terrific performance in Split as we inch closer to its January 20 release.

Another similar article:
Even though X-MEN: APOCALYPSE made a fair chunk of change at the box-office, it was still considered to be a bit of an under-performer and wasn't embraced by fans nearly as much as X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was. Fox is obviously going to keep the franchise going, but with rumblings of a franchise reboot as well as the fulfillment of Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy's three-picture contract, the future of the X-MEN series is still a mystery. One member of that trio is still keen on returning, as James McAvoy recently told Fandango that he'd love to return for more X-MEN movies, provided they offer him a really good part.
If they offer me a really good part, I'll be in. If it's not a very good part, then... I'll think about it. I love playing Charles, and I've always had interesting things to do with Charles, so if that continues then of course I'd love to take part in it.
Just yesterday we may have found out that McAvoy will indeed be returning for more X-MEN, as Anya Taylor-Joy let it slip that she "think[s] James is already a part of" NEW MUTANTS. The Josh Boone (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS) helmed spinoff stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (THE WITCH) as Magik and Nat Wolff (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS) as Cannonball. Will James McAvoy also be involved? I suppose we'll have to wait and see. Fandango also asked the actor what he thought of LOGAN, which features Patrick Stewart in the Professor X role, and McAvoy thought it was "brilliant" although he admitted that he was jealous that he wasn't old enough to play Charles Xavier.
James McAvoy's next, SPLIT, will hit theaters on January 20, 2017.
