Agents Of SHIELD, Arrow, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, And Other Film And TV Casting News

Agents of SHIELD, ArrowX-Men: Dark Phoenix, and other films and TV shows have made recent casting news.

These productions come from studios based primarily in the United States. The castings are subject to change.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Jessica Chastain says that she is not playing Lilandra in the upcoming superhero film X-Men: Dark Phoenix. It was believed that the Academy Award-nominated Zero Dark Thirty actress would play the Shi’ar Empress because the character’s name was initially listed in the trade reports regarding the production, but Chastain flatly shot the claim down on Instagram.


Liam Hall is set to play Joe Wilson in the planned sixth season of Arrow. Hall is known for his roles in Camp and Lucifer. The character he will be playing, of course, is the son of Slade Wilson, better known as Deathstroke the Terminator, the nemesis of Oliver Queen. Reportedly, Wilson will appear as part of a series of flashbacks exploring Slade’s background in what is described as a “two-parter” episode by Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

Agents Of SHIELD

Nick Blood will reprise the role of Lance Hunter for Season 5 of Agents of SHIELD.

High Life

Juliette Binoche, Andre Benjamin, and Lars Eidinger have all joined High Life.

Nappily Ever After

Camille Guaty will play a supporting role in Nappily Ever After.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
