Men: Dark Phoenix - Fiery First Image Revealed

EW Unveils Fiery First Look At Sophie Turner's Jean Grey In X-Men Dark Phoenix

As well as showing Sophie Turner in full CGI as the Phoenix, we also get our first look at Jessica Chastain's unnamed mutant villain and a look at the opening five minutes of the film - which is supposedly set in space. Dark Phoenix is Twentieth Century Fox's second attempt at portraying the Dark Phoenix Saga events from the comic onto the big screen.

Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique has a new hairdo and a more mature and even "maternal" outlook, feeling more protective of the X-students.

We'll be on the lookout for more clues as we get closer to the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018.

"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 - the Phoenix", writes EW. That was when Turner first tangled with her role-a teenage Jean Grey with backcombed hair and shoulder pads. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don't know how many comic-book films can say that".

Turner became a household name when she joined the cast of HBO's hit adaptation of George R.R. Martin's science fiction and fantasy series.


A collection of familiar faces are also on board: James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and more.

EW has begun to shed some of the first light on the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix flick. At some point in the film, one of the X-Men is going to bite the dust, but it's unclear who. Kinberg also reveals in the cover story that he asked for a longer post-production period than usual to "deliver on the nuance of the visual effects", which is great news.

Though much of what plagues Jean will come from within, she'll also be tormented by Jessica Chastain's now unnamed character, an "otherworldly shapeshifter" who deftly manipulates Jean and the Phoenix for her own nefarious goals.

Simon Kinberg is writing and directing the film, marking his directorial debut.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix retains much of its star studded cast from the previous films.
