First ‘DARK PHOENIX’ Trailer Teases The Darkest X-Men Movie Yet

Adjust Comment Print

It feels like it's been a long time coming, but X-Men: Dark Phoenix is nearly here - and now we've finally got a trailer to prove it.

It's been a bumpy few days for Dark Phoenix: after the trailer was reportedly shown in Russian Federation, a low-quality version soon leaked online.

"You're very right, everyone seems to hate Charles in this trailer and blame him for everything", Turner laughed, adding, "One of the main things with Jean throughout this movie is her abandonment".

20th Century Fox has unveiled the synopsis of the Dark Phoenix movie ahead of the trailer launch of the X-Men film on Tuesday. The trailer shows Grey grapple with her superpowers upon returning home and turning to a young Magneto for help. The incident leaves her infinitely more powerful, but also dangerously unstable. I feel like this movie is a revelation because of it being like a drama but the hero is a female and she's also the villain.

This is writer/producer - and now director - Simon Kinberg's second crack at the Phoenix storyline after X-Men: The Last Stand, and he's aiming to make up for the previous treatment's inability to do it justice. As she battles with this new reality, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can't understand or contain. "Sophie Turner is looking great as Jean Grey and in Game of Thrones she showed that she is a good actress".

"'Dark Phoenix" is going to be all kinds of epic.

Another interesting note surrounding Dark Phoenix is that both this film and Marvel's Captain Marvel movie will be set in the 90s.

The film opens February 14, 2019 stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, and Jessica Chastain. "There's such a revolution in superhero movies".
