Filming is now underway on the next main X-Men film, subtitled Dark Phoenix. The bulk of the cast from the First Class trilogy are coming back, along with new additions such as Jessica Chastain’s Lilandra. Now, a new report suggests that four more characters are joining the cast – two are new, while we’ve met the other two before.
According to That Hashtag Show, actors Kota Eberhardt and Scott Shepherd have joined the X-Men universe. Eberhardt plays a character currently known as Luna, described as “…intense and exudes a sense of power. Although she is a commanding presence, she is also slightly unhinged.” Meanwhile, Shepherd plays Dr. John Grey, the father of Jean Grey.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is scheduled to hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018. The 13th installment of the X-Men series stars Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Simon Kinberg writes and directs.
