“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” New Mutants Revealed?

A massive casting call for approximately sixteen lead and supporting characters in Simon Kinberg’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” has gone online and seemingly confirmed roles for some fan-favorite characters in the 1991-set follow-up to “X-Men: Apocalypse”.

That Hashtag Show announced the character breakdown news which comes just days after Fox confirmed Kinberg as director, multiple major returning cast members, and talks with Jessica Chastain to play the villain.

The character’s real identities are hidden via pseudonyms, but the show speculates the list of mutants will include Sunfire, Dazzler, Monet, Mimic, Rogue, Karl Lykos/Sauron, Mastermind and members of the Hellfire Club and the Shi’ar Imperial Guard.

This follows on from reports on both Project Casting and Omega Underground earlier this week that suggests Karma and Warlock will play roles in Josh Boone’s “X-Men: The New Mutants” spin-off film.
