WonderCon just happened and during the popular fan convention, the X-Men took center stage at the Arena to promote the upcoming Dark Phoenix from director Simon Kinberg. Throughout the panel, over 15 minutes of footage was shown to the audience, including The Marvel Report’s Andy Behbakht, Lauren Gallaway, and Angie Dahl.
In this video, the trio give their spoiler reactions to the footage that was shown as well as their latest expectations for one of the two last chapters of the current X-Men Cinematic Universe.
“In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.”
