First Look & Synopsis for ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ (UPDATED with More Pics)

Entertainment Weekly shares the first look at Jean Grey inhabited with the Phoenix force. Additionally, they revealed plot details for the upcoming film.

Synopsis: Set in 1992, about 10 years after the events of last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix opens with the X-Men, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), in a new, unexpected role: national heroes. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) even lands on the cover of Time magazine. But his growing ego puts the team at risk. 

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 (Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner)— the Phoenix.

I’m not too thrilled with them jumping another ten years into the future (or past in our case). Also, I’ve never really thought of Professor X as having a huge ego, which this prequel series seems content on him having.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix hits theaters November 2, 2018.
