It’s the coming end of an era for the X-Men Cinematic Universe as one of the two final installments of FOX’s 19-year long franchise is coming out this year with Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix. After this one as well as The New Mutants (August 2), the X-Men will be getting a reboot when they join the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Disney acquiring 21st Century Fox.
As we’re about 4 months away from the film’s release, a brand new trailer and poster have officially been released as we see the classic Jean Grey storyline from the comics come to life. Catch them below and be sure to let us know in the comments below what you thought of the trailer!
“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.”
