MEN: DARK PHOENIX Plot Explained

Share

Dark Phoenix, her own spinoff movie partially based on the comic by Chris Claremont, gives an even deeper look at her character's uncontrollable, and sometimes destructive, telepathic abilities. Simon Kinberg, who wrote The Last Stand, gets a second chance as a writer and director for Dark Phoenix. X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the next installment in Fox's mutant shared universe, is hitting theaters in a little less than a year.

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.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back much of the cast of the new films, including James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler).

Pride is starting to get the better of him [Charle Xavier], and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions.
This likely shows Jean Grey during her first transformation into Dark Phoenix, because I can't imagine Turner walking around almost nude throughout the entire film (though they did that with Mystique, so what do I know).

Senior UN official meets North Korea's deputy foreign minister
The UN Under Secretary-General for Political Affairs met North Korea's Foreign Minister in Pyongyang on Thursday. North Korean officials rarely brief the media on the content of discussions with foreign dignitaries.

Featuring numerous same mutant characters from Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix looks to take the franchise to new and exciting places (including outer space!), while continuing the saga of the young Professor X, Magneto and Mystique that began in X-Men: First Class.

But perhaps the most interesting photo is the one that depicts Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and several of his X-Men at a rainy funeral. Is this the team saying farewell to Jean after the Phoenix force consumes her?

"It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening", says Turner, who studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare.

After the X-Men team is 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. "What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?"
