Will Jessica Chastain Play Jean Grey as Dark Phoenix in Next X-Men Movie?

June 14, 2017

It's ginger spice and everything nice.

Jessica Chastain is reportedly in talks to play Shi'ar Empress Lilandra in the next X-Men movie, THR reported. That's right; the band of mutations head to space in their 2018 outing, which will focus on the Marvel comic books' legendary Dark Phoenix saga.

The famed redhead would be a perfect shoo-in for Jean Grey and her fiery alter-ego but that role goes to Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner, who played the telepath in 2016's X-Men Apocalypse. Jennifer Lawrence will be returning as Mystique.

Shooting will commence soon in Montreal.
