At the tail-end of April, Omega Underground uncovered a string of potential X-Men: Dark Phoenix audition tapes labelled Teen Spirit (film’s working title). The biggest one to catch our attention was from young actress Alexa Swinton, best known from the series Billions. In the tape, she reveals production would take place in Canada (shoots this summer in Montreal) and revealed her character was named Marie (Rogue’s first name in the films).
Swinton’s representatives asked us to remove the video and we did upon request.
Her role and if she’s landed the part has yet to be confirmed but we’ve found something interesting today on Twitter.
Exactly seven days from we posted information of Swinton’s audition, she posted this image on her family’s official Twitter account. In the photo, Alexa is posing with the Phoenix Saga comic at New York City’s Midtown Comics celebrating Free Comic Book Day. This definitely adds more fuel to the fire.
Dark Phoenix is set for release on November 2nd, 2018.
