Alice Braga has joined the cast of the upcoming X-Men spin-off movie New Mutants in the role that originally went to Rosario Dawson.
It’s not clear right now why Rosario left the project, but this would have been her second Marvel role after her work in Netflix’s Luke Cage and Daredevil.
Alice will play “Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on,” according to THR. Also in the cast are Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, and Henry Zaga. New Mutantsis set to be released on April 13, 2018.
You might recognize Alice from her work in the movies Elysium, Predators, and I Am Legend. She also appears on the USA series Queen of the South.
