Fox has announced that it will be releasing the next installment in the X-Men series in November 2, 2018. Dark Phoenix will be directed by Simon Kinberg, who was a writer for X-Men: The Last Stand, and was a producer for X-Men: Apocalypse, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. This will be Kinberg’s first time in the director’s chair, so we’ll have to see what he does with this addition to the X-Men saga.
Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee will all be returning for Dark Phoenix. Jessica Chastain, who has an impressive resume including The Help, The Martian, and Zero Dark Thirty, is in talks to play Shi’ar Empress Lilandra, the main villainess.
