Sophie Turner Heats Things Up in First "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" Photos

08 December 2017

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2, 2018.

The film is being helmed by the increasingly busy Simon Kinberg.

With the Dark Phoenix storyline already tackled in X-Men 3: The Last Stand, I'm curious on how Kinberg is planning to bring something new to the table.

As the holidays near, 20th Century Fox has delivered a gift of goodies to X-Men fans.

We may have to wait until 2019 to see Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark again, but we're already getting big clues of her role in another project, as Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The first images have already started showing up, and the plot details released so far are minimal but seem promising.

"I would call Dark Phoenix a drama", Lawrence continues. 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.

Indeed, the actress also revealed that her blue-skinned trickster has "grown up a lot" since Apocalypse - Dark Phoenix takes place a full 10 years after Bryan Singer's forgettable threequel - and is much more maternal when it comes to protecting Charle and his school of mutants. However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks. EW described Chastain's character as an "otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda". She's more maternal which surprised me. Whatever it is, it helps make Dark Phoenix the "most emotional" and "most pathos-driven" X-men movie, according to McAvoy.

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.

In June, it was announced Chastain was in talks to join the cast as a villain.

Meanwhile, Lawrence also touched on the inflated ego of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), whose delusions of grandeur threatens to tear the X-family apart. That suffering is nearly certainly going to come at the hands of Jessica Chastain's villain - Lilandra, Empress of the Shi'ar Empire. While Fox hasn't stated who Chastain's character is, one of the more popular theories bouncing around is that she'll be portraying a version of Lilandra of the Shi'ar, a race of aliens who have a long history with the Phoenix in Marvel's comics. Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment. He was a producer on X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and the writer of Days of Future Past and Apocalypse. Jean becomes corrupted by Phoenix Force that provides her with her powers, forcing her to turn them against the X-Men.
