That Hashtag Show says Eberhardt will play a character named ‘Luna,’ speculated to be a code name for a comics mutant such as Lorelei. Sheperd will play Jean Grey’s father.
Additionally, Evan Jonigkeit and Gregg Lowe from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” are reportedly in talks to return for the new film, reprising their roles of Toad and Ink respectively.
