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.

She won’t say who she’s playing in Dark Phoenix, but we might know already.
Oh, that this was true. Normally, it's nice to pretend that late night "flashbacks" like this are real -- sure, Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Fallon totally made a soap opera together! -- but this new entry into the subgenre of chat show skits is so weird, so strange, so great that we can only wish it were true. Wish along with us.
