We still have no real clue as to whom Jessica Chastain will be portraying in X-Men:Dark Phoenix. The fires burns deep to figure out how the Academy Award nominated actress fits into the X-Men franchise.
Now the first and obvious choice was with this one going into the Dark Phoenix saga, Chastain would be portraying Queen Lilandra of the Shi’ar Empire. Chastain has since denied that. But what we do know is that she is supposed to be playing a mysterious shape-shifter. Of course this gives a bunch of possibilities, one being that she is one of the shape-shifting aliens known as Skrull.
Here’s where it gets kind of weird because the Skrulls aren’t in the Dark Phoenix story and they are potentially set to be involved in one of the next couple of Avengers films. but that for the moment is neither here nor there. But currently Chastain’s character name is being Smith. Now of course this is a dummy name to keep people from finding out and we probably wont fully know until we get either a teaser or a full trailer.
X-men:Dark Phoenix is scheduled to hit theaters November 2nd!
