It sounds like Rosario Dawson is ready for another superhero project.
The actress is in talks to star in the X-Men spinoff film "New Mutants," Variety reports. MCU fans are already very familiar with her thanks to her work as Claire Temple in multiple Marvel series for Netflix. In "New Mutants," however, she would play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a character who serves as a mentor for young mutants.
The film is apparently going to be a horror flick centering on teenage superheroes. The cast includes "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy ("Split"). Directed by Josh Boone, it is intended to be very different from other Marvel movies.
Distinct as the movie will be from the studio's other projects, we hope to see more of Dawson in the MCU. She's been a staple of Netflix's Marvel series, including the most recent, "Iron Fist," which debuted on the streamer in March. The cross-over series "The Defenders" premieres this summer.
Assuming Dawson takes the part, we'll see her in "New Mutants" when it opens on April 13, 2018. Here's hoping!
