Jennifer Lawrence Coming Back For More X Men Movies?

>X-Men: Dark Phoenix will see Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy all return to the X-Mansion one more time.

The core cast of the movie – which is director Simon Kinberg's adaptation of the iconic X-Men comic story The Dark Phoenix Saga – will also bring back Nicholas Hoult as Dr Hank McCcoy (aka The Beast), according to Deadline.

These veterans of the X-Men franchise will join forces once again with Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) — all of whom were introduced in last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Just as exciting is news (via The Hollywood Reporter) that The Martian's Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the X-Men adversary Lilandra, queen of the alien species known as the Shi'ar.

Lilandra is being described in much of the press as a "villain", although that is an overly-simplistic view of the character. When Jean Grey loses control of the cosmic entity known as The Phoenix within her, it is the Shi'ar who sentence her to death in order to save the rest of the galaxy.

The Shi'ar's queen would go on to become an ally of the X-Men in later years, and would even form a romantic bond with their leader Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) in comics continuity. We'll see if the movies go down this route.

While the return of Michael Fassbender as Magneto had been tipped in May, it appeared unlikely until very recently that J-Law would reprise her role as the shape-shifter Raven Darkholme (aka Mystique).

While Lawrence herself admitted last winter that she wasn't keen to do any more X-Men movies, Dark Phoenix producer Hutch Parker nevertheless hinted in May that Mystique would somehow be involved in the new chapter.

"The current story that we're working on has that group [Magneto and Mystique] involved as well as some of the younger characters that we introduced last time," Parker teased last month.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be released on November 2, 2018.
