    "I have seen the Demon Bear animatic, it's pretty cool, 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 exciting." Said the actress in a statement.

    When asked about if she is hoping to join her Split co-star James McAvoy in the characteristic role of young Charles Xavier, she said, "I mean, I think James is already a part of it, isn't he?"

    This adds to the earlier reports which suggested that James McAvoy would play a pivotal part as the mentor in this new mutant movie.

    The New Mutants will be directed by The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone and is likely to be an exact adaptation of the story from Bob McLeod and Chris Claremont's 1982 comic book series of the same title.
