Men: Dark Phoenix plot details revealed

As a screenwriter, X-Men franchise mainstay Simon Kinberg had tried to introduce the Dark Phoenix arc in X-Men: The Last Stand, but was thwarted by studio interference and a tragic Wolverine-Jean Grey romance. 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.

It's what prompts him to send the X-Men into space for a rescue mission, but the consequences are dire.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will take the team to both outer space and the '90s, and it will "irrevocably change the course of the franchise". In fact, Charles Xavier lands on the cover of TIME magazine, and with his newfound inflated ego he starts sending the team on more unsafe missions. But that's giving Xavier a growing ego that's becoming a liability for the team.

In the EW article, we learn that Dark Phoenix sees Mystique and the X-Men in the role of national heroes after the Apocalypse incident.

"[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to hand this to somebody else to direct", director Simon Kinberg told the magazine. A "major twist" occurs halfway through the film, and indeed here we see a funeral attended by Charles (James McAvoy), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPHee), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Storm (Alexandra Shipp), so who dies? "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering".

The X-Men Movie Universe continues with The New Mutants on April 13th; Untitled Deadpool Sequel on June 1st; and X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2nd. The actress studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare for the part.

In further X-Men news, 20th Century Fox and IMAX have announced an extension of their previously-made deal that will include digital remastering of many of their films for an IMAX release, including X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants, and Gambit.

EW has described as "an otherworldly shapeshifter who comes into contact with Phoenix".
