Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, and Kodie Smit-McPhee will all reprise their X-Men: Apocalypse roles for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, according to Deadline. Longtime X-Men producer Simon Kinberg will reportedly direct.
Jessica Chastain is reportedly in talks to play the primary villain, Queen Lilandra of the Shi'ar Empire, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Neither Deadline or THR mention the involvement of Evan Peters' Quicksilver, Lana Condor's Jubilee, Olivia Munn's Psylocke, Ben Hardy's Angel, or Lucas Till's Havok in the 2018 X-Men film. Peters' exclusion is particularly curious as he was in the final line-up of the team at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is due out in theaters November 2, 2018.
