Dazzler is set to appear in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. EW has confirmed that the mutant character, known as a pop star in the Marvel Universe, will have a small role in the film. No one has yet been cast in the role, though the magazine specifically rules out Taylor Swift for the part. She had been rumored to play the role after posting to her social media from the X-Men: Apocalypse set.

Dazzler, real name Alison Blaire, has the mutant power to generate light. She uses it to support her music career but over the years has learned how to channel them in a variety of ways, including offensively.

Simon Kinberg will write and direct the film, which will bring back the cast of the previous film including Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Jessica Chastain is in talks to play Lilandra, the empress of the Shi’ar and the primary antagonist. It releases in theaters on November 2nd, 2018.
