The last member of the main team for The New Mutants has been cast with the announcement of Blu Hunt playing Danielle Moonstar. Hunt is a relative new actress, who appeared in a handful of episodes of The Originals. Moonstar is a Native American, with the power to create illusions drawn from the fears and desires of a person's mind. The plot is rumored to be based around the Demon Bear storyline, of which Moonstar plays a central role.

Hunt joins the already announced Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik. Actors Charlie Heaton and Rosario Dawson are currently in negotiations for Cannonball and Dr. Cecilia Reyes, respectively.

Zaga's casting has garnered controversy, with some claiming the Brazilian-born actor is too light-skinned for the part. If the same critics feel similar to Hunt's casting, who is part Native American, we're in for a fun weekend.

The New Mutants, which was recently revealed to be a horror film by director Josh Boone, is set to release April 13, 2018.
