Yep, it’s official. Jessica Chastain will oppose the X-Men in Dark Phoenix, which is currently in production in Montreal. The actress shared two Instagrams of herself and James McAvoy, a.k.a. Charles Xavier, from what’s probably The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’s red carpet and a screencap from that movie itself. She won’t say who she’s playing in Dark Phoenix, but we might know already.
So, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the world is a pretty scary place right now. Millions of Americans are worried about the future of their healthcare; millions more are struggling under the weight of college debt. North Korea is threatening nuclear attacks on our country. No matter your political alignment, there’s at least a dozen horrifying news stories competing for your attention ever single day. In times like these, even stupid little news stories can be a welcome break from the monotony of horror spitting out of our Twitter feed.
