November 21, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Variety reports that Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) is in talks to join the cast of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off. She will play the female lead but no other plot details have been revealed. Channing Tatum will play the titular mutant, who has the ability to control kinetic energy. This allows him to turn anything into an explosive projectile. He also uses a bo staff as a weapon. Before his time in the X-Men, he was part of the Thieves Guild.

The film will be directed by Gore Verbinski. It arrives on February 14, 2019. This will be the first solo film for the character which previously appeared in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine (played by Taylor Kitsch). Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt have been attached to the film at one point or another.
