A horror movie was what they wanted to do with the recent Fantastic Four. It turned out so well!

lol obviously this would be a much better thematic fit for a darker story. I am pretty skeptical this will really be a horror movie, though Fox has been the ones lately who are most exploring going in different directions with their superhero properties

If they are doing full horror then it is a shame that Magik's origins probably won't be faithful because if you want an X-Men horror story just read her original mini where she is trapped in Limbo as a little girl and forced to kill her friends to fulfill a demonic blood ritual.

Cecelia Reyes is a great character. I'll take a break from canon to put her in the book over Stevie or Sharon. Especially if it lets us dodge the horrible 'turning people into Cheyenne' plot line from the original Demon Bear Saga.

If you look at the main cast, though, they all definitely have horror-esque backstories.

Rahne is a werewolf abused by an evangelical preacher.
Dani literally sees death coming for people and can fight to save them. She also manifests others' worst fears.
Illyana grew up in hell.
Sam's father died in a coal mining accident, and after he subsequently becomes a miner, gets trapped in a cave-in.
Roberto's girlfriend died tragically and he made a deal with a demon to bring her back.
Xian was forced to kill her psychopathic, murderous twin brother.

Karma's supposedly not in the movie but Warlock has a father trying to murder him for not wanting to be a killer himself.

This could end up being the most comics accurate X-film, at least visually...

I am torn with this decision, I just love Rosario Dawson, I really hope we get her as another X-woman some other day.

I'm actually really happy she's out and I like Rosario Dawson. I'm just tired of seeing her in superhero shows.

Edit: I'm going to rephrase what I said because I hate to focus on an actress looks. I'm just not a real big fan of this casting choice.

So is this a thing of "Yeah, she's not white, but she's not dark enough?"

Well, the thing is, like me and some other people have mentioned in other times, being latino is more about culture than about race, given that it comes from our countries being colonized by Spain and Portugal. As you can see from many latinx celebrities, we come in many colors and races (see: Cristina Aguilera, Cameron Diaz, Zoe Saldaña, America Ferrara, Oscar Isaac, Gina Torres, George Lopez, Diego Boneta)

So in most cases, we identify as both latinx, and from a particular race such as white, black, indigenous, "mixed" and so forth, so when there is a character that is afro latino and dark skinned such as Sunspot and Cecilia Reyes, it makes sense that people would want to see those both aspects reflected on screen instead of people simply casting someone latin, assuming there is a particular "default" latino look of being vaguely "tanned" people (this is coming from my understanding that neither Alice Braga or the Sunspot actor are african descendent, wich could be wrong, and the fact that they are not particularly dark skinned)

Particularly in Brazil theres a very big community of afro brazillians, who i understand would want to see a superhero who is both from their country and shares their race, reflected in the screen. I mean, there is no reason why you couldnt cast an actor who shares both those traits, and while i understand that it is a complicated issue, considering those two actors are in no way A-List who could use the exposure, and its not their fault the get dragged in a discussion about race, but the studios coud have cast darker latinos in those particular roles.

Edit: Also, this reminded me of the case of Miles Morales, who is afro latino and people actually see him more as only black, given that at first his books didnt really reflect much of his latino heritage (wich im told has improved in recent volumes). Imagine the drama Marvel would get if they were to cast someone like Henry Zaga.
