EW have revealed their latest cover, which is our first look at Sophie Turner as Jean Grey / Phoenix in the latest X:Men film, ‘Dark Phoenix’. New details the films plot and new/returning characters have also been revealed:
“Set in 1992, about 10 years after the events of last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix opens with the X-Men, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), in a new, unexpected role: national heroes. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) even lands on the cover of Time magazine. But his growing ego puts the team at risk. “Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions,” Kinberg says. After they’re dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Sophie Turner)— the Phoenix.”
Jessica Chastain joins this sequel as “an otherworldly shapeshifter” – a presumably villainous character that we’ll learn more about soon! The cast also promise a “massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise”, which already has us all kinds of excited!
