Dazzler confirmed for ‘X-Men Dark Phoenix’ for a small appearance

Fans of the X-Men comic books will be pleased to learn that Dazzler will finally be joining the cinematic X-Men universe in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the new X-Men sequel that will be directed by Simon Kinberg.

Entertainment Weekly promises that Dazzler will indeed appear in the ’90s-set, Jean Grey-centered sequel, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, stating that the character will “pop up but only in a small role” and as of right now, there is “no plan” to cast Taylor Swift in that role.

Taylor Swift?

Yes, that Taylor Swift.

It seems that singer/actress was rumored to be secretly cast to play Dazzler in a cameo in Apocalypse. Swift fans the world over were crushed to discover that wasn’t the case.


Cameos in the X-Men films have meant nothing about extended roles in future films. In fact, Bryan Singer’s cameos became irritating Easter Eggs instead of setting future projects.

Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Alexander Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee are all set to return and reprise their respective role from the previous new X-Men film.

Jessica Chastain has been hired to play the film’s villain.


X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters on November 2, 2018.
