Jessica Chastain was rumored for a role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix in June, with whispers of the role being Lilandra, Empress of the Shi'ar and ex-wife of Charles Xavier. Chastain took to Instagram to confirm her appearance in the film. While she didn't confirm her role, her playful ribbing with Charles Xavier actor James McAvoy is another connection to Lilandra.
