Dark Phoenix

Before the rights to the X-Men head to Marvel Studios, we’ll be getting one last outing with the mutants and now a new international trailer for ‘Dark Phoenix’ has dropped. 20th Century Fox seems quite confident in Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut and if the buyout didn’t happen, we might have seen him taking over for quite a few films to come. The director even says that “I see it as a new chapter” which will likely be the only one written unless this blows up at the box office in a way that no recent X-Men movie has been able to do.

It is strange to think that parts of the “Secret Invasion” story arc are said to be at play here but with we already knew that the film was set to give us an introduction to the shape-shifting race.

Are you excited to see what Simon Kinberg does with ‘Dark Phoenix’? Will this “X-Men” movie leave you wanting more or just make you wish that Marvel Studios would be able to reboot the franchise that much quicker? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!

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.

‘Dark Phoenix’ will rise in your local theaters on June 7th, 2019!
