Men: Dark Phoenix will feature the team's first trip into outer space
Dec 07 2017 by Francis Osborne
The newest photo from the superhero franchise, released by Entertainment Weekly, teases Turner as young Jean, literally bursting in flames, with sparks flaring out from the cracks on her skin. At this point, we have no idea if we'll be seeing things as insane as the fight on the Blue Area of the moon, but Kinberg did say he's been wanting to tell his version of this story ever since his plans to go further with Dark Phoenix in X-Men: The Last Stand were scrapped by the studio.
The result is the team's first trip into space where a mission gone awry awakens none other than, you guessed it, The Phoenix Force within Sophie Turner's Jean Grey.
Move over, Katniss Evergreen, because Sophie Turner, 21, is the new girl on fire.
We may have to wait until 2019 to see Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark again, but we're already getting big clues of her role in another project, as Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In fact, Charles Xavier lands on the cover of TIME magazine, and with his newfound inflated ego he starts sending the team on more unsafe missions.
Co-star James McAvoy added, "This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven".
"Dark Phoenix" moves the story forward another decade, set in 1992, where the X-Men are beloved heroes now.
That dog, one imagines, is Jean Grey/Phoenix, and Chastain's character likely advocates killing her entirely rather than trying to bring Jean Grey back. "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering". The actress studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare for the part.
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.
