How 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' Fits Into Continuity Confirmed

  • Sophie Turner Is on Fire (No, Literally) in the First Look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Here is your very first look at Sophie Turner as the Omega-level powerful Phoenix.

Looking at the image of the space shuttle, this movie is said to be the first time the X-Men will be venturing into space. It was confirmed then that the movies would be following "The Dark Phoenix Saga" story line from the comics.

The upcoming film will follow the timeline of Days of Future Past, where Grey was alive and well, rather than her being dead at the ending of 2006's The Last Stand. Jennifer Lawrence is also back as the shape-shifting Mystique, so we can only imagine the kind of tussles she'll get into with Chastain's character.

That's her burning up on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly, giving us our first look at next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

"I would call Dark Phoenix a drama", Lawrence continues. The film opens with Charles Xavier landing the cover of TIME magazine and the X-Men are seen as national heroes. There, Sophie Turner's Jean Grey is hit by a solar flare that awakens the Phoenix and ignites a conflict that plays out through the rest of the movie.

Yes, Fox and Simon Kinberg's space-faring tentpole is still a long way away (November 2nd), but thanks to Entertainment Weekly's ongoing coverage, we now have an early peek at what is surely one of the most enticing blockbusters of 2018.

But in next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Turner will play the fiery antagonist as Jean Grey will transform into the Dark Phoenix.

Turner also stated that she would have to fight this new opponent without the help of her former mentor, Littlefinger, who Stark killed in season seven.

Turner became a household name when she joined the cast of HBO's hit adaptation of George R.R. Martin's science fiction and fantasy series. At some point in the film, one of the X-Men is going to bite the dust, but it's unclear who.

Now, on a much lighter note, he stopped by to say hello to the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

But the X-Men film franchise was rife with numerous reports of a hostile work environment which includes accusations from Ellen Page that The Last Stand director Brett Ratner displayed homophobic and misogynistic behavior during the production of the film; and Bryan Singer being reportedly absent, on a consistent basis, from the set of X-Men: Apocalypse.
