Confirming a casting call that popped up last week, Entertainment Weekly reports that Dazzler is set to make her big screen debut in next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Though details about who’s playing her are being kept under wraps, EW mentions that it’s not expected to be Taylor Swift, who was rumored to have a role as the character in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. However, as it turned out, Dazzler was only in the film in the form of a small easter egg that didn’t even make it into its final cut.
According to EW, Dazzler only has a very small role in Dark Phoenix. That’s all that we know about the character’s role in the film for the time being, but more should be revealed over the coming weeks, as the project is expected to begin filming this summer.
The film is being directed by Simon Kinberg, with a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Kodi-Smit McPhee, and Alexandra Shipp. Jessica Chastain is also in talks to join the project in the villainous role of Lilandra, the empress of an alien empire called the Shi’ar.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to hit theateres on November 2, 2018.
10 Superhero Teams Too Powerful For Their Own Good
This past week, those of us who are both superhero fans and basketball fans, got to see the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals, getting Kevin Durant his first championship ring. Those who criticized him joining the Warriors for the sake of the security of gaining a championship have a pretty good argument (but Lebron did the same thing when he took his talents to South Beach a few years ago). An even better reference for us superhero fans: Spider-Man joined the Avengers eventually for the security of being on a “championship team” over the years in the comics, even though he was more successful when on his own. Some would say that the Warriors were not a regular team, but a “superhero team” as they (like the Yankees) stacked their team with athletes too good for their own good.
Ok, enough about sports, but this makes you think about teams of superheroes in comics/movies that are unnecessarily overpowered. It’s to the point that some teams are just too strong for their own good. How could they be defeated when they are literally the strongest people in the world (or even the galaxy)? Some of these members of these teams are literal gods and undefeatable on their own, let alone teaming up with heroes that are equally if not more powerful than they are. Here are a few superhero teams that are just too powerful for their own good. Click Next to take a look….
