It has long been rumored that Jessica Chastain would be portraying the Empress of the Shi'ar Liliandra, especially after she confirmed her appearance in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. But alas, that is not to be, according to the actress in a deleted Instagram post, which she said:

"Hey folks, want a scoop? Im not playing Lilandra....."



It's only a matter of time before her character's identity is revealed. Unless she's throwing us a curveball to confuse us and she really is Lilandra.

Set to open Nov. 2, 2018, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Ship as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Chastain still most likely as Lilandra, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
