Angelina Jolie a Possibility for X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX?
X-Men fans are already elated over all the new films slated to come out next year. New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix are gearing up for 2018 releases, and casting rumours are starting to fly. But now one unlikely name has been dropped for the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
On the podcast, Meet The Movie Press, hosts Jeff Sneider and Simon Thompson was having a discussion about Universal’s Dark Universe. During their talk, they chatted about casting for Bride of Frankenstein. Snieder then name dropped Jolie into the mix for Frankenstein’s Bride, with an unexpected twist:
“If she needs to do a big movie and if it’s not…Dark Phoenix – which I don’t think it will be – then I think she should do Bride of Frankenstein.”
Adding the Academy Award-winning actress would be a major gain for the upcoming X-Men flick. She has proved herself as an action star and as an incredible actress. Although who she could possibly play is up to fate, she would do good as any hero…or villain.
However, Sneider was asked on Twitter whether or not there would be a Wanted reunion with James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie. The host had this to say about it:
I said on the podcast that I don't think she's going to do it. But… we may get a DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY reunion instead 😉

Whether Jolie joins the X-Men universe or not seems to be a big question, but according to the tweet, it seems to imply that a Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy reunion is a stronger possibility than the more Wanted one (I couldn’t resist.). As the casting news New Mutants starts pouring in, we should hopefully have a clearer picture on Dark Phoenix casting news.
What do you think? Do you prefer Chastain to Jolie? Or do you think Jolie will take the part? Let us know down below!
