New Mutants co-creator Bob McLeod has slammed the upcoming film for ‘white-washing’ and spelling his identify flawed.
The artist created the unique comics alongside Chris Claremont.
With the film, directed by Josh Boone, about to hit cinemas, Bob admitted he was ‘disenchanted’ with sure points, particularly the characters’ appearances.
Bob wrote in an announcement on Fb: ‘I used to be very excited after I heard they have been making a New Mutants film. I assumed making it right into a horror film was maybe an attention-grabbing thought, however by no means how the characters needs to be launched to the general public at massive.
‘However, hey, my characters in a film! I by no means would have thought that may really occur. However then, I used to be disenchanted once they didn’t give Dani braids, though I like Blu Hunt. I used to be disenchanted when Rahne wasn’t a redhead with spiky hair, though I like Maisie Williams.
‘I used to be disenchanted that Sam isn’t tall and gawky, though I do like Charlie Heaton. However primarily I used to be very disenchanted that Roberto isn’t brief and dark-skinned. One more instance of Hollywood white-washing. There’s simply no excuse.

‘So mainly, #JoshBoone erased all the pieces I contributed to the best way the characters look. And now, the film has come out ultimately, and apparently they’ve credited somebody named Bob Macleod as co-creator.
‘They couldn’t even be bothered to test the spelling of my identify someday within the final three years. And that may’t be mounted. That might be on the film eternally. I feel I’m achieved with this film.’
