We’re excited to see the news of famed filmmaker and #BGNPodcast alumni Gina Prince-Bythewood penned to write and direct the Sony release of Silver Sable and Black Cat which will be a spin-off film from the popular Spider-Man franchise. Gina Prince-Bythewood is no stranger to the Marvel universe, she directed the pilot episode to the impending Cloak & Dagger series scheduled to launch on the Freeform network in 2018.  The season finale of her latest series Shots Fired just wrapped this week which is a compelling take on state-sanctioned violence in a small North Carolina town.

And speaking of spinoffs, actress Rosario Dawson who we know best as Claire Temple in a series of Marvel shows including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders; is currently in talks to play Dr. Cecilia Reyes in the X-Men property New Mutants for Fox.

According to Variety, New Mutants is in pre-production and has been set for April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants.

Fox announced last month that it was dating three Marvel movies for 2018 — “New Mutants” for April 13, “Deadpool 2” for June 1, and “Dark Phoenix” for Nov. 2.

We recently chatted with Rosario Dawson during her press junket for her latest film Unforgettable and chatted about another rumored role that everyone’s been buzzing about regarding Star Wars.
