The two-minute trailer sees return of the reboot cast, focusing on Sophie Turner as Jean Grey as the titular Dark Phoenix is unleashed and the X-Men struggle to fight its power.

The Last Stand was the last film to tackle the Dark Phoenix story, but was widely criticised by fans for only featuring it as a sub-plot.

In Dark Phoenix, a telepathic and telekinetic Jean Grey discovers her true potential after almost being killed during a rescue mission in space.

The Juventus forward gestured at his marker to get up, and appeared to put his hand on the Colombian's head. He was very upset, crying, because he said he didn't do anything wrong .


Following on the tail of its ominous predecessor, Apocalypse, the Dark Phoenix trailer also promises end of the world antics. The trailer, which originally leaked after it was revealed during a private Fox presentation in Russian Federation was debuted by Jean Grey actress Sophie Turner on The Late Late Show with James Corden and has now been officially released online.

Prompted to clear some things up after a report suggested the Skrull aliens (who will also be appearing in Captain Marvel), will show up in Dark Phoenix, one user started a sub-thread regarding the film.

In March, Fox pushed the release date for Dark Phoenix from November 2018 to February 2019 for planned reshoots.

In X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the latest offering in the tumultuous X-Men franchise, reunites some of the biggest stars for an explosive, action-packed epic tale of psychic mutant Jean Grey - played by Turner - and her descent into darkness.

Back in December, Sophie Turner told EW she studied multiple personality disorder and schizophrenia in order to play Jean's duality.

After weeks - nay, months - spent in absolute silence, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is finally ready to spread its wings.

Brett Kavanaugh faces second allegation of sexual misconduct
It does not matter that no other eyewitness can even confirm that Judge Kavanaugh was at the party in question. Kavanaugh says the event "did not happen" and that the allegation is "a smear, plain and simple".


The film will likely be the final full X-Men film for the studio before it is enfolded into Disney, making it the probable capper for the current continuity. My worry is that the story beats here look to be very similar to that of X-Men: The Last Stand, and since both were written by Simon Kinberg, that's hardly surprising.
