Meet more powerful Jean Grey in 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' first trailer

Adjust Comment Print

The trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix is finally here, showing what we can expect in the upcoming Sophie Turner film.

From the Dark Phoenix official synopsis: In the movie, "the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey". And with the trailer implying that the Phoenix Force will lead to catastrophe, it feels like this new film is just running the same motions, even though the casts for these films are always strong.

With any luck, this take on the legendary Dark Phoenix saga will give fans of the comic what they desperately wanted after the lackluster 2006 adaptation in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters February 14, 2019.

Turner first entered the world of comic book movies in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Speaking of intergalactic stories, what role if any might the cosmic play in the other X-Men-related movies Kinberg is producing and which are still in development at 20th Century Fox (despite the looming Disney takeover of both the studio and the X-Men franchise in general)?

In the movie, Jean Grey (Turner) is almost killed after being hit by a cosmic force. Will we see a Marvel character cameo in Dark Phoenix?

But overall this trailer has a strong air of drama to it, and I'm excited to see the franchise take a more interior turn after the loud, somewhat incoherent Apocalypse.

Here, it seems that Smith may be turning Jean against the X-Men in a more direct way, probably leveraging whatever secrets Charles is hiding to make her question who's really on her side.

Although, Mastermind manipulates Jean psychically, and the result of a mental battle between him and Cyclops is what eventually pushes Jean over the edge into Dark Phoenix territory. Jean's backstory is briefly touched on, and Professor X's immoral, but necessary, manipulation of her powers is also briefly displayed. "There's such a revolution in superhero movies".
