Jessica Chastain in negotiations for villainous role in DARK PHOENIX

Jessica Chastain Dark Phoenix

Jessica Chastain Dark Phoenix

Last week, reports emerged that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will finally embrace the cosmic side of Marvel's mutant heroes. Though the character isn't quite as villainous as we'd like to think, as she had a loving relationship with Charles Xavier and sought help from Xavier and his X-Men to help her defeat her evil brother in the comics.

Kinberg was previously rumored to be making his directorial debut onX-Men: Dark Phoenix, though when asked about the matter at the time he would only say such rumors were premature. He is also producing with Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the main villain, Shi'ar Empress Lilandra.

At the same time, Fox is getting the band together one more time and has closed deals with Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult to return to the franchise after their original three-picture deals expired.

US Senators Back Legislation Strengthening Russia Sanctions
Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, said last week that the Senate ought to give Trump " more time" before pushing sanctions. It would affect "key sectors of Russia's economy, including mining, metals, shipping and railways".

Shipp, Sheridan and Smit-McPhee all debuted in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse as Storm, Cyclops and Nightcrawler respectively.

X-Men: The Dark Phoenix will be a direct sequel to last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Even if you consider yourself a loyal disciple of Fox's lucrative mutant franchise, the X-Men lore can be hard to parse. He was a producer on 2011's X-Men: First Class, 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and the writer of Days of Future Past and Apocalypse.

Who's Returning To Face The Dreaded Dark Phoenix? This all just happened, but they've formalized Simon Kinberg as director, and set a release date of Friday, November 2, 2018. The film will based on the Dark Phoenix Saga, which Fox attempted to tell with X-Men: The Last Stand but that was not well-received by fans and critics. The Dark Phoenix Saga is one of the most widely-appreciated storylines in the comics, and it deserves a well-executed trip to the screen.
