X-Men: Dark Phoenix will feature the team's first trip into outer space

It was something of a surprise that Lawrence, McAvoy, Fassbender, and Hoult all returned for Dark Phoenix, since their contracts expired after Apocalypse.

Sophie made her debut as the young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, but she's getting the standalone movie she deserves.

Originally Dark Phoenix showed up in X-Men: The Last Stand, which ended in Jean Grey's death at the hands of Wolverine.


Jennifer Lawrence is back as Mystique, looking blue-er than ever.

Even as talks continue regarding a merger of Disney and Fox, the latter is forging ahead with its successful X-Men franchise, premiering a first look at "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. According to Jennifer Lawrence, "I would call Dark Phoenix a drama", says Lawrence.

Charles Xavier was recognized and awarded the cover of Time magazine. When a solar flare hits the X-Jet, a "surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean". (The events of Dark Phoenix take place almost a decade after X-Men: Apocalypse, which is why only some fan favorites are able to return for the sequel.) The film, set in 1992, will closely follow the events of the "Dark Phoenix Saga" in the X-Men comic books.


X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set for release in November 2018. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don't know how many comic-book films can say that".

Deadline broke details about the cast in June. Notably, the announcement does not include Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in the last two X-Men movies. It has also been confirmed that Dazzler will be one of the new mutants in the movie, although she hasn't been cast yet...

Entertainment Weekly has an in-depth feature on the upcoming X-Men sequel from director Simon Kinberg, and it confirms that Chastain is playing someone else.


Yes, the X-Men are heading off into space, and much like the comics and the animated series, Jean Grey will return to Earth with some new abilities and enhanced psychic powers. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I'm sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.
