The Skrulls aren't coming quietly. It was previously announced that the Skrulls will be the main villains in Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson's title character fighting off the intergalactic threat. A new report has surfaced that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will also be using the same villains.
The Marvel universe has no shortage of dastardly aliens that it can pit its superheroes against. But nothing quite compares to the Skrulls. They are perhaps the most notorious of outer space bad guys, who haven't shown up on screen thus far. But that's about to change in a substantial way.
X-Men 7 is planning to use the Skrulls in one key action set piece that will apparently steal the show. The scene takes place at a Un building where Professor X, played by the returning James McAvoy, will be giving a heartfelt speech on Mutants. He will be joined there by Michael Fassbender »
The last time that 20th Century Fox attempted an adaptation of the classic X-Men story arc The Dark Phoenix Saga, we ended up with 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, which saw the Phoenix pretty much taking a back seat in favour of the “mutant cure” storyline.
Well, Fox and The Last Stand writer Simon Kinberg are now taking a second stab at bringing the story to the screen with next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and while recent reports have suggested it will be “grounded” and “not too intergalactic” and may even include The Skrulls rather than the Shi’Ar Empire, Storm actress Alexandra Shipp has now claimed that the movie will be “very accurate to the comics.”
“As a fan of X-Men, you are going to be very happy, because I’m a huge fan of X-Men and so is our director, Simon Kinberg, who’s also writing and executive producing it, »

Sophie Turner was only 13 years old when she was cast in Game of Thrones, but with the HBO show heading into its eighth and final season, it's easy to forget how old Sophie is exactly. So, how old is she, you ask? Well, Sophie was born on Feb. 21, 1996, making her 21 years old. She's already celebrated her birthday this year, but she's got another reason to celebrate seeing as she just got engaged to her 28-year-old boyfriend, Joe Jonas. Wow, 2017 is turning out to be a great year for Sophie. »

The end of X-Men: Apocalypse teased that the franchise would be stepping more in-line with the comics going forward, as the final shots featured Professor X’s team in some largely faithful comic book costumes. This looks to continue in the follow-up, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, as one of its stars has now promised fans that they’ll be “very happy” with what the movie has to offer.
Alexandra Shipp, who’s taken over from Halle Berry to play a younger version of Storm since Apocalypse, spoke to Deadline about the film and cited director Simon Kinberg as a big reason why Dark Phoenix will be “very accurate” to the comics. As you’ll no doubt know, Kinberg has long been involved with the X-Men movie franchise in the role of screenwriter and producer, but this is his first stint in the director’s chair.

During the San Diego Comic-Con in July, it was announced that The Skrulls are set to make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2019’s Captain Marvel movie.
However, if rumours are to be believed, we may have another Quicksilver scenario on our hands, as fan site Universo X-Men is reporting that the shape-shifting alien race is also set to feature in next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
According to the site, the film includes a scene at the United Nations building in New York, where Professor X and company are discussing mutant rights. However, the building subsequently comes under attack from alien ships, with actors reportedly sporting motion-capture suits and clearly identified as the Skrulls.
It has been widely reported that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will take the franchise cosmic, although it had been assumed that the Shi-ar Empire would feature in the movie, with Jessica Chastain portraying the Empress Lilandra. »

Further to "Game of Thrones" actress Sophie Turner appearing in the August 2017 issue of "Marie Claire" (UK) fashion magazine, Sneak Peek more new images of Turner posing for the November 2017 issue of "Marie Claire" (Us), wearing Louis Vuitton, photographed by Beau Grealy:
"I don't really have a process," said Turner about her acting method.
"I'm very much an in-the-moment actress. I suppose I just kind of wing it because I feel that as long as I know my character, I should be able to be spontaneous on set.
"I learn something new everyday about myself as an actor, my capabilities, how far I can stretch myself, throw out emotions I never knew I had.
"I don't know why - I guess it's my job.
"It's quite nice coming off doing a dark, upsetting scene.
"It's a relief that that's over with, and then you can get back to happy old Sophie. »

How far would you go for social media followers? It’s a question many millennials have probably asked themselves -- but hopefully, they won’t go as far as the leads of the upcoming horror-comedy Tragedy Girls.
The film tells the story of two death-obsessed teenage girls who embark on a killing spree in their small town to draw attention to their social media accounts, and its two stars, Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp, spoke with Et about how frighteningly close to reality this concept is.
“I don’t think it’s that far-fetched,” Shipp admitted. “I think this generation is moving toward something like this in a sense.”
“It definitely says a lot about the power of social media,” Hildebrand agreed. “It is definitely not too far off to think a young person would do something like this for likes and attention.”
“I think it only takes one person to go that far,” Shipp added.

There’s something to be said about finality in storytelling.
Whereas some TV shows tend to overstay their welcome (see: The Big Bang Theory, Dexter, et. al), the likes of Breaking Bad, Sopranos, and The Wire all achieved immortality by delivering a conclusive and overly satisfying ending. And Kit Harington believes Game of Thrones can follow suit.
Currently on the brink of its eighth and final season, Harington is confident that HBO’s fantasy flagship is ending at “the right time” so that the cast and crew can move on to pastures anew. After all, eight years is a lifetime in the film industry, and while Thrones has allowed the likes of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner to make in-roads into Hollywood – the two actresses have upcoming roles in The New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix, respectively – Kit Harington recently admitted to Digital Spy that Game of Thrones is a huge timesink. »
