X-Men: Dark Phoenix is seeking an actress to play Dazzler in a small cameo role, according to Entertainment Weekly.

EW reports that it has confirmed rumors a casting notice for Dark Phoenix included a role that bore resemblance to Alison Blair, A.K.A. the Dazzler - a mutant pop-star with the power to convert sound into dazzling light.

Dazzler was created with the intent of cross-promoting the character between comic books, music, and film, but thus far her only cinematic appearance came in a small Easter egg in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse, where a "Dazzler" album cover was shown.

According to EW, the role is a brief cameo - and it will not be portrayed by Taylor Swift, as possibly implied by an Instagram post from Jean Grey actress Sophie Turner.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is scheduled for a November 2, 2018 theatrical release.
