New Mutants teaser trailer release date CONFIRMED with Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams

The hugely anticipated spin-off from the X-Men franchise is about to give fans their first sneak peek.

New Mutants is the latest Marvel comicbook adaptation to hit the big screen bt will have a decidedly younger and fresher feel.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams will take centre stage as the lupine Wolfsbane – clearly there is a shaggy theme in her career.

Fans have been desperately hoping that someof the major X-Men stars will also make an appearance but the filmmakers have been keeping casting and plot details under very tight wraps.

Boone released a teaser for the teaser trailer on his Instagram today.

The main image is a plain black background with the time 12.01am.

All it says is one Friday the 13th themed phrase with a series of cryptic hashtags: “There’s Something New To Fear #tomorrow #newmutants #teaser #xmen #thenewmutants #fridaythe13th.”

What does it mean?

Put it all together and it is clear that the new teaser trailer will arrive just after midnight tomorrow. However it will be US Pacific Standard Time, which means 8.01am in the UK. 

Brit star Williams will play a girl called Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), who has the ability to transform into a wolf or an intermediate half-human, half-wolf state at will, while retaining her human intelligence and awareness.

Wolfsbane is one of the key players in The New Mutants, who often operate separately from the main X-Men and have their own story arcs in the comic books. As well as shape-shifting, in some versions of the comics she is also bulletproof and virtually inpenetrable.

The upcoming Marvel movie has also confirmed the casting of Anya Taylor-Joy as Illya Rasputin, aka Magik. Marvel artist Phil Noto posted the first image of Williams and Taylor-Joy.

The main cast of New Mutants also includes Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball (Charlie Heaton) and Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga). 

Despite early indications otherwise, the latest reports say that James McAvoy will not reprise his role as Professor X, after all.

All be revealed tomorrow…
