A copy of A Game of Thrones, George RR Martin’s first book in the series A Song of Ice and Fire, is seen in Marvel's "The New Mutants" comic, NME has reported.

The book is seen in the arms of a sleeping Wolfsbane, a fictional superhero with the ability to transform into a wolf. The character will appear in the forthcoming movie adaptation of “The New Mutants”, portrayed by Maisie Williams, who played Arya Stark in the Game of Thrones series.

A Twentieth Century Fox film, The New Mutants was initially to be released in April 2018, with its first trailer launched in 2017. However, the release date was shifted to 2020.
