The next X-Men film is set to focus on Jean Grey as Fox will once again be trying to adapt the “Dark Phoenix” storyline and Jessica Chastain will be joining the cast this time around. When Chastain was confirmed for the film, it was believed that she would be playing Lilandra, Empress of the Shi’ar Empire, but the actress says that’s not the case.

Jessica Chastain recently wrapped her first day of filming on the “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” set and she shared a picture from the set on Instagram. She then shared some interesting information with the fans about who she isn’t playing in the film when she left a comment saying, “He folks, want a scoop? I’m not playing Lilandra….”

You can check out a photo below.

Unfortunately she didn’t tell fans who she is playing in the film. Anyone care to guess?

“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” will open in theaters on November 2, 2018.
