With Disney’s acquisition of Fox, the fate of many of the studio’s Marvel films as been up in the air. One such movie is New Mutants, which is expected to arrive in theaters in the spring of 2020. Now, some new images from the set have surfaced, which seem to suggest we may see Anya Taylor-Joy don Magik’s iconic comic book look.
New Mutants stars Taylor-Joy as the hero Illyana Rasputin, Magik. With the ability to travel through dimensions, teleport, manipulate magic, and wield several mystical items, Magik is a formidable member of the New Mutants.
Well, now thanks to some recently surfaced set photos we have a new look at Taylor-Johnson as the character. Based on the image, it looks like we may see the character in her soul armor from the comics.
In the pages of Marvel Comics, Magik’s Soul Armor generates on the heroine when she wields the Soulsword. The more she uses the weapon, the more additional armor manifests. To this point, it was unclear whether the Soulsword would appear in the film, but this image seems to suggest it will play some sort of role for Taylor-Joy’s character.
