Fox has another X-men movie “Dark Phoenix” in the works, and word on the street is that Jessica Chastain may be cast as the villain in it. Why are we so excited about this news? Well, Chastain is known for her roles in Zero Dark Thirty, The Martian, & Interstellar. In case you still don’t remember just who she is, first we’ve included a picture for you below, but also remember that she’s always portrays somewhat of a quiet, brooding & intelligent character. So we’re pretty excited because she would make an excellent and formidable villain. She’s proven herself in space, and now we can’t wait to see her prove herself in the X-Men universe too.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will star Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, and Nicholas Hoult again. It centers around the telepathic Jean Grey, Turner, and the feared Phoenix force. Chastain would play Lilandra, the head of an alien empire called Shi’ar. Dark Phoenix is meant to release in November 2, 2018, and will begin shooting in Montreal soon.
