For the second time in a week, it looks like a prominent Marvel superhero is making their debut in their respective cinematic universe in an Easter eggy way.

Jean Grey actress Sophie Turner has revealed a new still from X-Men: Apocalypse, featuring her, Cyclops (played by Tye Sheridan), and Dazzler... in a manner of speaking. Take a look:

That "Sounds of Light and Fury" cover comes directly from the cover to Dazzler #29 by Bill Sienkiewcz.

Dazzler has never appeared an an live-action feature, but has come close - sort of. In the early 1980s, Gary Goddard was commisioned by Marvel to write a script for a Dazzler movie with Bo Derek set to star. And in 2013, director Bryan Singer pulled an April Fool's Day prank by announcing Lady Gaga had been cast to play Dazzler in the then-upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters May 27.
