Is Fox Biting Off Too Much By Bringing Liliandra Into X-Men: Dark Phoenix?
I'm glad to see director Simon Kinberg wanting to tell more of the tale and bring the Shi'ar into it, but again I fear it may be too big for a single film.     With news the Fox is negotiating with Jessica Chastain about playing Liliandra in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie, it opens up[...]
