X Men Assemble. Again
Although it comes as no real surprise, 20th Century Fox have confirmed the next X Men movie, and that fact that series writer-producer Simon Kinberg is due to fill the director’s chair, as Bryan Singer steps aside.
The uncertainties in the returning cast, i.e. can they still afford Jennifer Lawrence and Micky Fass? are uncertainties no more, with both actors returning alongside James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Sophie Turner, whose Jean Grey is set to play a prominent role given that the next outing is titled X Men Dark Phoenix (check your comics.)
Upping the star wattage and villain power even further, Jessica Chastain is being lined up to take on the role of the movie’s big bad.
Filming is set to begin imminently with a November 2018 release date.
