NEW MUTANTS | Team Lineup And Writers Revealed

The New Mutants is a X-Men spin-off centered around a group of teenaged mutant superheroes-in-training. The movie will be based on the early ’80s run by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the team in the film will be made up of “Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock.”

The film will reportedly be written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the duo responsible for writing the “Fault in the Stars” screenplay.


A Brazilian mutant, Sunspot possesses the ability to absorb and channel solar power. He is idealistic and impulsive, but is considered a close friend of many of his teammates.

Danielle Moonstar

Moonstar originally possessed the psionic/psychic ability to telepathically create illusions of her opponents' fears or wishes. She later developed a wide range of psionic and energy manipulation powers.


Cannonball is a mutant who uses the ability to fly at jet speeds while encased in an impenetrable force field.


Magik is the younger sister of  X-Man Colossus. Her natural mutant power is the ability to teleport. She also is a capable sorceress.


Wolfsbane possesses the ability to transform into a wolf or into a transitional state somewhere between human and wolf. She has honed her powers to shift between human and wolf characteristics but must keep her feral instincts at bay when she does.


A young alien with a body that can assume any shape, he was commonly used for visual gags and fish-out-of-water humor.
