Game of Thrones star Sophia Turner has confirmed she will returning to her role as Jean Grey in the next X-Men film, rumored to be titled X-Men: Supernova.
At the 70th British Academy Film Awards last night, Sophie Turner confirmed that a new X-Men movie was in production and that filming would begin shortly. In a red carpet interview with Hey U Guys, Sophie Turner said:
“We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we’ve just finished shooting Season 7 of [Game of] Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”
Pretty cool right? If Turner's coming back, that most likely means a ton of the previous X-Men: Apocalypse actors will be returning as well. It will be interesting to see who all Fox is able to bring back considering so many of the actors like James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence's contracts had run out.

Here's the unofficial synopsis:
“Gathered together by Professor Charles Xavier to protect a world that fears and hates them, the X-Men had fought many battles, been on adventures that spanned galaxies, grappled enemies of limitless might, but none of this could prepare them for the most shocking struggle they would ever face. One of their own members, Jean Grey, has gained power beyond all comprehension, and that power has corrupted her absolutely! Now they must decide if the life of the woman they cherish is worth the existence of the entire universe!”
X-Men: Supernova does not yet have a release date, but is rumored to begin shooting in May.
