Men: Dark Phoenix Plot Details Emerge

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

We've still got a while to wait for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which isn't set to open until November 2, 2018.

Director Simon Kinberg on Charles Xavier's ego: "Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions".

X-Men: Dark phoenix promises a much more true-to-comics adaptation of the saga than The Last Stand, with fans being promised a space-based adventure for the X-Men. Sophie Turner's Jean Grey covers the new First Look Issue of Entertainment Weekly, with several more photos inside.

In the new film, which takes place in 1992, the X-Men are no longer shunned outcasts, but national heroes.

EW also features an interview with Turner, who talks about taking on this challenging role.




Sophie Turner transforms into a fiery Jean Grey in the first look at 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix.' She's literally on fire - and topless! - on the cover of 'EW'. Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment. That means it is now before the events of the original X-Men, a change instituted by X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The film's cast isn't spilling too many details either, but Turner did explain some themes behind it that again make it seem very similar to the source material: Namely, the battle (literally and metaphorically) for Jean Grey's soul.

HollywoodLifers, are you excited for X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

Just met "the dude".thank you Canada for such a progressive, impressive and somewhat suggestive real life superhero. Entertainment Weekly has given us a bunch of X-Men: Dark Phoenix stills to hold us over until the trailer is released.

Simon Kinberg is writing and directing the film, marking his directorial debut. In fact, Den of Geek spoke with Kinberg in February on the latter where he and fellow X-producer Hutch Parker spoke candidly about how being there first-hand to see how good movies in the genre (say, Logan) and bad ones (say, Fantastic Four) helps inform Kinberg on doing his own movie and doing it right. "We have really great action scenes and we go to space like within the first five minutes of the movie".
