As we first heard about Jessica joining the X-Men franchise, it was reported she would be playing Lilandra Neramani, Empress of the Shi’ar.
While wrapping her first day of filming – that was yesterday -, she shared her excitement with us on Instagram. But the major surprise came in the comments: she’s NOT playing Lilandra, as first reported.
So, at this point no one knows who she’ll play, and this is exciting.
First day on Xmen ? "Whoa, that’s a full rainbow. All the way. Double Rainbow. All the way. It’s a double rainbow all the way. Whoa. So intense. Whoa. Man. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa!!! My God!!! Oh my God! Oh my God! Woooo! Oh Wow! Woooo! Yeah!!! Oh my, oh my, oh my God look at that. It’s starting to look like a triple rainbow. Oh my God. It’s full. Double rainbow all the way across the sky. Oh my God. (audible sobs). Oh God. What does this mean? Oh my God. It’s so bright. Oh my God it’s so bright and vivid. Oh. Oh. Oh. It’s so beautiful. (audible sobs). Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Double complete rainbow. Right in my front yard. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!! Oh my God. What does this mean? Tell me! It’s too much. I don’t know what it means. Oh my God. It’s so intense. (big sigh). Oh my God.” #regram @simondavidkinberg Just wrapped first day with @jessicachastain. A sign from space. #darkphoenix
