    That's more like it. Putting a deeper emphasis on Jean.

    8/2: Chastain took to instagram to confirm her role in Dark Phoenix and jab at McAvoy a little.

    8/7: Kota Eberhardt has been cast as a supporting character codenamed "Luna", "female, mid-late 20s, open to all ethnicities. Beautiful, could possibly have a severe look. Luna is intense and exudes a sense of power. Although she is a commanding presence, she is also slightly unhinged." Scott Shepherd joins as as Dr. John Grey, father of Jean Grey. Evan Jonigkeit, who played Toad, and Gregg Lowe, who played Ink, are in talks to reprise their roles.

    It may be Deathbird. Even though I read she may have a rights issue, I can only hope it's her.

    Jean's dad is a doctor? Interesting...

    I wonder what their going to do with Toad and Ink. In Genosha with Magneto o_O?
    I do wonder if they're going to introduce another antagonist in the Shi'ar so Lilandra can migrate into an ally of the X-Men...

    If this is truly fleshing out her character, I do wonder if they'll get into Mastermind at all. Like I said before though, Hellfire Club would make a good sequel. Eventually, they'll have to address Cable, Sinister, and Jean's clone.

    He was a history professor in the comics. And incidentally

    Indeed, I'm curious if they're going with Genosha and how -- as the exploitative regime or straight to Magneto in charge but would that be adding another storyline to inflate the movie.

    That might stall until X-Force.

    Or she could be Cerise since she and Kurt were romantically involved in the comics.

    She's got the right look for Allison :).

    In a concerning statement, Kinberg asserts that the film will be grounded and "not too intergalactic."

    Frankly, while it's admirable that he wants to make sure the human element shines through, I hate this statement, and it encompasses everything wrong with FOX. The Phoenix Saga is one of the biggest cosmic events in Marvel, period. Trying to ground it is a facepalm moment.

    I sometimes wonder how Deadpool was allowed to be so comic book-y.

    I mean, if they still go very cosmic while still keeping the human element of what Jean's going through along with the other X-Men, that's fine :).

    I just want my comic-accurate Phoenix Force and Shi'ar Imperial Guard :D.

    Trust me, if they go very cosmic, but keep in the human drama that X-Men is known for, I'll be a happy camper. But his comments "not too galactic", has me worried that they'll half-bake it, and instead of "very" cosmic, we get "mild" cosmic.

    Anyway, Kinberg should know better than anyone that we already had a grounded Phoenix movie. :p

    Yeah, I need the Shi'ar to look like actual aliens, and not people with tattoos.

    If this is the first part of an actual trilogy, then I would not expect it to be that cosmic just yet. However, it's something we'll have to see. Seems they'll definitely give us a full backstory and development of Jean, if they're smart this can have legs. We know about Mastermind, Hellfire Club, and eventually Mr. Sinister. At this point we don't know how the relationship between the Shi'ar and Earth is at all if any. Is Jean in trouble for just having the Phoenix force in her?

    I think that's why the Shi'ar come after her. I don't think she's gone Dark Phoenix yet.

    The last thing I was worried about was the completion of Mystique's story.

    Yeah, really. I think maybe the only two things left to see is her becoming villainous and possibly owning up to being Kurt's mom.

    Well, at least we might finally get some kind of conclusion with her character here :sweat:.

    And maybe, just maybe, they'll finally confirm she's Nigthcrawler's mother :p.
