Actress Halston Sage (“The Bling Ring,” “Paper Towns”) has reportedly been cast in the role of the light-emitting pop star mutant Dazzler in Simon Kinberg’s directorial debut “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” at 20th Century Fox.
Omega Underground reports the casting, saying that Sage was recently seen with the movie’s cast backstage at a Hans Zimmer concert in Montreal.
They added that X-Men stuntman Mich Todorovic shared a selfie in an Instagram story recently in which a board of cast members is included behind him. Headshots on the board include both Sage and the film’s villain Jessica Chastain.
Dazzler sings at a concert in the Dark Phoenix storyline in the comics, and the role here is only expected to be a small one. “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” is currently in production ahead of a November 2018 release.
