X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to be released next November, and the cast is finally starting to come together, with details about where we can expect the story to go. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Jessica Chastain is in final talks to play Lilandra, leader of the Shi’ar Empire.

The trade is reporting that Lilandra is the film’s primary antagonist, so it looks like we can expect the X-Men to go cosmic, as well. An interesting thought, but with such a hit-and-miss record on Earth, we’ll see how well the film can do off-planet from a storytelling perspective.
