Like “First Class” and “Days of Future Past” before it, “X-Men: Apocalypse” also takes place in a previous decade. This time, the X-Men are saving the day in 1983, complete with trips to the mall and appropriately ’80s fashion. As part of #FBF (Flashback Friday), Sophie Turner — who plays the young Jean Grey in the film — shared a new still from “Apocalypse.” Not just any still, mind you; it includes a cameo from iconic ’80s mutant Dazzler.

Dazzler debuted in 1980’s “Uncanny X-Men” #130 and was designed to play into the disco craze; her initial costume included rollerskates and a disco ball necklace. She used her power to transform sound into light to enhance her stage act as a disco performer, and she’s a prominent musical artist in the Marvel Universe. It looks like the same can now be said of the X-Men movie universe, as Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) holds up a Dazzler album in the mall’s record store. Whether or not Dazzler will make a live-action cameo in the film — or any future X-Men film — remains to be seen.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” opens on May 27.
