Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has responded to online rumors that she's attached to play Wolfsbane in 20th Century Fox's upcoming New Mutants film. When the rumors first came up on March 31, the studio quickly responded that the actress's casting was 'not true,' but that wouldn't preclude it from eventually being true, and the way the actress responded makes it sound like there may be some 'there' there.

“I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family,” Williams told Entertainment Weekly. “New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs. And [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.”

"I can't say much about it at all" could be interpreted to mean that she doesn't know about that potential, or rather something is preventing her from saying more about it and considering her outright endorsment of it happening, it can't be discounted as a possiblity.

In other words, the door seems left purposely open to Williams being cast.

New Mutants is currently in pre-production, with no release date set.
