Rumors surrounding X-Men: Dark Phoenix have been running rampant for awhile now. Considering how tightlipped things have bene on the information side of things, this makes sense. Speculation happens and people latch onto anything that they hear and blow it up. One such rumor has surrounded Jessica Chastain and her potential involvement in the upcoming installment. Nothing had been confirmed or denied until today.
Jessica Chastain revealed today on her Instagram that she will be heading up to Monteral to join James McAvoy. She also tagged director Simon Kingberg, who has been linked to directing X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Although we now have confirmation that Chastain has joined the project, we do not have confirmation yet as to who she will be portraying in this next installment. Rumors have surrounded her potentially playing Lilandra Neramani, a comic book character who has been romantically linked to Professor Charles Xavier. However, nothing has been 100% confirmed about her role so she could actually be playing anyone at this point.
