Josh Boone, the director of Fox’s upcoming New Mutants movie, has posted some concept art to Instagram that imagines Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, otherwise known as Wolfsbane, drawn by Ashley R. Guillory. It’s hard to tell the difference anymore between what is and is not an official casting announcement, and, yes, that’s all of our fault here in the entertainment media, but the official entertainment journalism handbook is telling us this is not official, and must be considered a rumor. We’re lobbying to change the rules, but that’s where we stand right now. To date, there have been no official casting announcements for the movie, which has no release date.
Still, the rumor does come right from the director of the film, so on the grand scale of clickbait karma, this one ranks pretty low.
