Rogue Recast For “X-Men: Dark Phoenix”?

There’s still no director as yet announced for Fox’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” but the start date on the follow-up to “X-Men: Apocalypse” is drawing close and is reportedly gearing up to commence production in Montreal in just over a month.

No new cast members have been announced yet either, but Omega Underground has reportedly discovered some official audition videos for three actors trying for four roles in the project – Rarmian Newtown (“Dance Academy”) for both Colin and Shane, Alexa Swinton (“Billions”) for Marie, and newcomer Paul Mescal for Sam.

Those character names are likely fakes to hide the real characters, but the Alexa Swinton video has led to speculation that we may see a much younger version of Anna Paquin’s Rogue in the film.

Fox has “X-Men: The New Mutants,” “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” and “Deadpool 2” said to be on the way next year with all about to begin production over the Summer.
