NEW MUTANTS: Alice Braga to replace Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rosario Dawson will no longer play Dr. Cecilia Reyes in director Josh Boone’s NEW MUTANTS spin-off, which takes place in the X-Men universe.

A reason for her departure has not been given.

She will now be played by Brazil-born Alice Braga, who stars in USA’s “Queen of the South.”

In the comics, Reyes is a Puerto Rican mutant who has the ability to form bio-force fields around her body when attacked.

In the film, she is said to be a mentor of sorts for the young group of mutants, which include Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy), Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Sunspot (Henry Zaga), Cannonball (Charlie Heaton) and Dani Moonstar (Blu Hunt).

“Nee Mutants” begins production next month in Boston for a April 13, 2018 theatrical release.
