EXCLUSIVE: The Reboot's Brotherhood!
VSGuide has just caught wind that the producers have finally released the new roster for the Brotherhood of Mutant Sovereignty. First the we notice is the absence of Toad -- and the addition of another member.
"We decided that it needed to be equal. There are technically six X-MEN if you count Spider-Girl, plus Professor Xavier. Magneto is basically the Professor Xavier of the group, meaning six other members were needed," the creator explains to us, "We may have plans for Toad in the future, but for right now we've dropped him and added two completely new members."
The roster, and the cast list, are as follows --
Sir Ian McKellen will be reprising his role as Erik Lensherr / Magneto.
Rebecca Romijn will be replacing Evangeline Lilly in the role of Raven Darkholme / Mystique.
Ben Barnes will be reprising his role as William Maximoff / Crimson Warlock.
Brea Grant will be reprising her role as Petra Maximoff / Quicksilver.
Thomas Dekker will be reprising his role as Lance Alvers / Avalanche.
Jadyn Wong was cast to play the same character for the 12th episode of the original season, but the episode will not come to air. She will join the rebooted cast as Jiang-Li Tsao / Pyro.
Pink will be joining the cast as Tabitha Smith / Boomer.
The producers have not yet released a date for when the current season will close up, but hope to be airing the reboot by this summer. Series creator Aimee Nicole promises updates as soon as possible!
