One of the movies we’re excited to see is X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will focus on Jean Grey as the titular character. It’s going to be out soon and a new trailer has been released.
Watch it below:
The movie will be based on The Dark Phoenix Saga, a story arc from the X-Men Universe that sees mutant Jean Grey be overwhelmed by the Phoenix Force, described as “an immortal and immutable manifestation of the universal force of life and passion.” As the Dark Phoenix, Grey becomes evil and sets out for destruction. The arc is considered a classic and is one of the most well-known storyline in comics history.
The film will star Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner as Grey, and she will be joined by James McAvoy as Charles X. Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as the Beast, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Jessica Chastain as a member of the Shi’ar race.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be screened starting June 7, 2019.
