'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' First Look

My bet is on either Lawrence's Mystique or Nicholas Hoult's Beast, both of whom would have a major impact given that they've been with the franchise since X-Men: First Class, as opposed to killing off some newish character audiences aren't exactly attached to just yet. At this point, we have no idea if we'll be seeing things as insane as the fight on the Blue Area of the moon, but Kinberg did say he's been wanting to tell his version of this story ever since his plans to go further with Dark Phoenix in X-Men: The Last Stand were scrapped by the studio.

After Jean Grey unleashed her full potential in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse, it was confirmed the next film in the series would adapt the seminal Marvel Comics storyline "The Dark Phoenix Saga", in which the character is corrupted and driven insane by a cosmic entity.

It's unclear if that's the extent of the space travel in Dark Phoenix, but there's plenty of it in the comics. Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018, and will have Simon Kinberg at the helm. "[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to hand this to somebody else to direct", Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly.

There were chants of "Puigdemont, President" from the crowd of demonstrators, many of whom travelled from Spain for the occasion.


Sophie Turner has never looked hotter. But his growing ego puts the team at risk. After they're dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner)- the Phoenix.

The magazine also has some story details for the sequel, confirming that it takes place ten years after X-Men: Apocalypse and is set during 1992.

Though, be prepared: "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering". The movie becomes a fight for Jean's soul as Phoenix threatens to overtake her mind and divide the X-Men, particularly Jean and her mentor, Charles. The actress studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare for the part. "What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?"
