RUMOR: Jessica Chastain's Villainous Role In X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX May Have Been Revealed

<font color="Red">RUMOR:</font> Jessica Chastain's Villainous Role In X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX May Have Been Revealed

Thanks to a fairly reliable industry source, Jessica Chastain's mysterious role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix may have been revealed and it's a lot more sinister than you might've been thinking. Check it out!

Jeff Sneider, of The Tracking Board, dropped two pretty major bombshells on today's episode of Meet the Movie Press, the first of which regards Jessica Chastain's mysterious role in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. (You'll hear a lot more about the second rumor later today)

According to his sources, which have a pretty solid track record, the 2x Academy Award-nominated actress isn't playing either Veranke the Skrull Queen or Shi'ar Empress Lilandra, but may, in fact, be playing classic X-Men villain Mister Sinister - well, more likely Miss Sinister if you're familiar with the comics. 

While Sneider was unable to provide further details, Chastain has previously described her character to Entertainment Weekly as "an otherworldly shapeshifter who influences Jean Grey/Phoenix for her own agenda," which is something that falls very much in line with Claudine Renko, a.k.a. Miss Sinister, a perfect genetic clone of Nathaniel Essex, whose powerset includes cellular shapeshifting, amongst other things. This would also help explain Chastain's radically different look and motivations against Jean Grey and Charles Xavier. 

Considering this is a rumor, for the time being, it'd be wise to take everything with a grain of salt. You can watch the latest episode of MTMP below, with the comments about Chastain coming in around the 8:15 mark:
