    I guess this is already official given by the recent news.:ilv:

    I don't really care about the actress, though I like that she looks the part. I am just excited to see Dr. Reyes outside of the comic books. Such an underused powerhouse.

    Cecilia Reyes is a dark-skinned black woman. I have nothing against this actress (or Rosario Dawson), but neither looks anything like Cecilia Reyes. This is another example of the X-movie universe exercising colourism in casting roles for black women. The most obvious and aggravating is, of course, Storm. Is it too much to ask to see representation for dark-skinned black women?

    They are going to be all over the place in Black Panther.

    It does makes me really sad. The whitewashing in this cast was a huge disappointment for me. I thought they'd make things right with New Mutants. But Fox has always been highly superficial when it comes to minorities really.

    And about Storm, Lupita was my dream cast <3

    Well for starters, this wouldn't happen if Rosario Dawson Temple didn't turn down the role.

    Ugh. Why they did they make a psychotic, abusive and creepy doctor?

    Cecilia Reyes is nothing like that in the comics! Geez Josh Boone!

    I didn't see anything in that trailer to show she was psychotic or abusive. She was creepy, but I think that's misdirection.

    Umm did you miss the shot of her injecting Magik in her neck and Magik was on the floor screaming? They are totally making her the head of the hospital.

    Why Reyes looks like Moonstar mother?

    They could choose other actress. Watching trailer I didn't know it's Moonstar or Reyes in some fast flash scenes.
    Also it looks like bad mother. Reminds me Stryker and his son situation.

    I just hope Cecilia isn't pure evil in this. Like if they wanted a female villain, they could have used Selene or the other female villains out there in the comics.

    I said this before, I'd rather Cecilia in a TV Show. I like her story as a sucessful doctor that had to hide that she was a mutant to not jeopardize her career. I think she would fit perfectly in The Gifted.

    I've had a crush on Alice Braga for a while so she can do no wrong in my eyes.

    Plus since she's a good actress, I don't have to worry.

    Definitely. She's never been that essential to the X-Men so utilizing her in a TV show would have been fine with me just like they are doing now with Blink and Thunderbird. While I wish I could say Sage too but so far Sage is an extra in that show.

    Dr. Reyes is worth checking for her power display alone.

    Her characterization was terrible. Though I did like how her powers looks like in the film. I hope the MCU will utilize her in the movies someday.

    They ruined Cecilia Reyes in this movie. There's no way two ways about it.

    For one thing, she was a black Puerto Rican in the comics. Also, she was not an evil villain

    Mystique is a heroic X-Man that is beloved by her fellow mutants and Cecilia Reyes is a villain.

    I enjoyed moments in the Fox X-Men films but these sort of changes to the source material make me happy the franchise is now out of their hands.

    Just read some of the older posts and the first trailer was very telling of her role,huh.

    Also, I wonder why they didn't bother to release any promotional pics for her and Demon Bear, its not like they weren't present in the trailers/tv spots.

    I dont know who this woman was but she was not Cecilia Reyes. Braga should have played an original creation
