'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' Trailer Released

'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' Trailer Released

Sophie revealed in a December 2017 interview about why she's excited about the female-centric X-Men movie. It will focus around inspiration from Marvel's Dark Phoenix Saga comics.

Debuting in 2001, Red Lotus was an ally of the X-Treme X-Men team, and the heir apparent to the Chinese Triad in Sydney, Australia.

Watch the first trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix here.

In the trailer, we are also shown glimpses of Phoneix's childhood. Director Simon Kinberg's Phoenix film appears to hew closer to the comics' space-based origin story than Brett Ratner's X-Men 3 - although the trailer keeps its precise machinations close to its chest, in favour of some self-serious X-Men melodrama. I am not expecting anything special from Dark Phoenix and yet they have a great opportunity here, by knowing this is the end. As such, it's been adapted a couple of times, including elements of the story being used for the plot of the movie X-Men: The Last Stand.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Jean

"Game of Thrones" actress Sophie Turner looks more than up to the task of playing the formidable Jean Grey in the "Dark Phoenix" trailer released Wednesday.

It's a moment of unfortunate meta commentary up there with the, "Hey at least we can all agree that the third movie in the trilogy is the worst one" from 2016's risible X-Men: Apocalypse. Then later we see Hank has joined ranks with Magneto. At one point in the trailer you can see Megneto standing with Beast and two other unnamed mutants, while Charles, Cyclops, Storm and Nightcrawler look on. After the great X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, the franchise hit a bit of a wobble with X-Men: Apocalypse.

The movie is set to be released on February 14, 2019. Sound off in our very own home for the gifted, chat zone below.
