The X-Men: Dark Phoenix cast continues to grow as production in Montreal starts to take place. It was just announced that Dazzler will be making an appearance to the Apocalypse sequel and there are still talks that Jessica Chastain will be playing the role of Shi’ar Empire ruler, Lilandra. Now we have newcomer, Lamar Johnson, reportedly cast in a mystery role for the upcoming movie!
Johnson currently stars in the Canadian show, The Next Step, and will appear alongside Halle Berry in the upcoming thriller/drama Kings. Maybe Halle and Lamar can discuss their overwhelming joy for Fox casting another person of color in their extremely diversified franchise! I kid I kid. Either way I’m excited to see who Johnson will be playing since the studio is so keen on keeping his role under wraps, maybe a young Bishop?
Lamar Johnson will star alongside X-Men movie vets, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Tye Sheridan.
