Looks like we will get to see a new love interest for Professor X in the upcoming movie X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Today actress Jessica Chastain confirmed that she will be in the next installment of Fox's X-Men series as Lilandra of the Shi'ar Empire by posting this picture on instagram of both her and X-Men star Jame McAvoy.
Now for those of you who don't know who Liandra is she is the Majestrix of an alien race called the Shi'ar, she has a long history being on again off again one true love for Charles Xavier. With the caption that states in her post "I'm going to make you cry so hard" give us the indication that this will stay true to that one again off again relationship the two characters had in the comics.
Glad we are getting more out worldly characters in this franchise which is only going to make it grow bigger as a universe but also give them plenty of more story opportunity on the road ahead.
