X-Men: Dark Phoenix Will Introduce Dazzler

After more than a year of hints, hopes and speculation, it’s now confirmed that fan-favorite Marvel mutant Dazzler will appear in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Entertainment Weekly reports the character’s role will be small, and she’ll likely not be played by Taylor Swift.

Introduced in 1980 in The Uncanny X-Men #130, Dazzler (aka Alison Blaire) is a mutant who can convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams, an ability she utilized in her career as a singer.

The character’s live-action film debut has been long teased, first in 2013 as an April Fools’ Day prank by X-Men: Days of Futures Past director Bryan Singer, and then with an Easter egg in a deleted scene from last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Fox offered a limited-edition Dazzler album cover as incentive for fans to preorder X-Men: Apocalypse on Blu-ray.

Opening Nov. 2, 2018, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Ship as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
