black mold on plaster

small area of black mold on plaster - how do i remove it before tiling over that area? Do I have to take out all the plaster or can I clean it with bleach and kilz?
Also - there is some black mold on the wood around the spicket of the bathtub after removing the tile I see it, how do I remove that?

How about a picture of this area.
There never should have been plaster or wood anywhere near a bathtub faucet.
All that plaster needs to go and tile board used instead then sealed with red guard before tile goes up.

Gut the bathroom. You may need mold remediation. You need to be sure the mold hasn't taken over before you just cover it up. It will grow on your new tile.
