The director Simon Kinberg posted a mysterious new image behind the scenes alongside Jessica Chastain – who will be the villain in the film.
According to new rumors by Jeff Sneider, editor chief of The Tracking Board, in an interview with Meet The Movie Press, the character Jessica Chastain will play in ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘ will be very important and surprising.
Sneider guarantees that Chastain will be Claudine Renko, also known as Miss. Sinister, the female version of the famous villain Mr. Sinister. In addition to possessing the same powers of Mr. Sinister, Claudine also has the rare ability to predict the future.
It is worth mentioning that everything is still rumors and new official information should come out soon.

Deadline – 20th Century Fox is doing some major shuffling of some titles for this year and 2019. The release date for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, which has been going through some speed bumps with its directors, has been pushed up from December 25 to November 2 — the original release date for the X-Men sequel Dark Phoenix. Fans of the comic book franchise will have to sit tight as that one will now open on February 14, 2019.
The adaptation of Don Winslow’s The Force was originally scheduled for March 1, 2019. That movie is still in formation, as director James Mangold will first helm the untitled Ford Vs Ferrari period film that has Matt Damon and Christian Bale circling. Mangold will direct The Force, to follow, as the director is working on a rewrite with his Logan co-writer Scott Frank. Fox has dated the Joe Cornish epic medieval adventure The Kid Who Would Be King to the March 1, 2019 slot, moving from February 14, 2019.
Fox also announced that the Roxann Dawson’s faith-based pic Breakthrough starring Chrissy Metz and Topher Grace will be released on April 12, 2019 alongside the animated feature Spies in Disguise which was originally slated for January 18, 2019.
Finally, fanboys and fangirls will also have to wait a little longer for Fox’s horror-driven adaptation of The New Mutants (whose characters exist in the X-Men comic books). Originally slated for a February 22, 2019 release date, the pic will now debut on August 2, 2019.
Dark Phoenix will now open on February 14, 2019
The Entertainment Weekly features X-Men: Dark Phoenix on their cover. Alongside all news about the movie, they have the first look of Chastain as Veranke.
Jessica plays an otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda. Chastain’s villain is quiet but brutal. “Simon and I were talking about the character and I said, ‘I keep thinking of the vet who tells you you need to put your dog down,’” says the actress of her inspiration. “There’s something very clinical about it.”
