The film is scheduled to be released next month after multiple delays.
Maisie Williams has praised the same-sex relationship between Rahne Sinclair / Wolfsbane (Williams) and Danielle Moonstar / Mirage (Blu Hunt) in The New Mutants, which is set to hit cinema screens next month. The star emphasised how “important” it was for same-sex relationships to be featured in films.
Speaking on the New Mutants panel at Comic-Con@Home, Maisie said: “It was really wonderful to be able to see a relationship look like this.
“In the typically quite masculine world of superheroes, it was just lovely to see these two fragile women who just protect one another and bring light out in each other, but I’m glad that the fans are so excited for it because I think it’s really important to see relationships like this.
“I think at the heart of it is just this really lovely love story. It just brings it back to reality, I think.”
Blu also revealed that she has been nervous about kissing Maisie during screen-tests, saying: “You can’t imagine how nervous I am. Like, oh, I have to go kiss Maisie Williams? It was very nerve-racking.”
