Continuation of the “X-Men” films in which Jean Gray (Sophie Turner) loses control of her power and becomes a threat to humanity and the X-Men.
Already in “X-Men: Apocalypse”, the mutant Jean Gray (Sophie Turner) has shown her true face: The powerful telepath is dominated by a monstrous power, the Phoenix Force. Only with difficulty and effort can she be in control. The Phoenix is far more powerful than Dr. Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). In the worst case, the intergalactic energy can destroy entire planets. How do the X-Men deal with this danger?
The first trailers give further information about Jean Gray as Dark Phoenix. Further information about the theatrical release of “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” as well as about the plot and the cast of the superhero movie you will find below.
As Jean Gray grows stronger and stronger, the X-Men fear the worst: What if Gray loses control of the Phoenix Force? Would they be able to put the phoenix to prevent the earth and maybe even other planets from being destroyed? While Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters) are forced to make a hard decision, Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) gets the most to feel the full extent of the change.
But in the rest of the universe, the birth of the Phoenix is perceived. In the comics, the alien warrior Lilandra Neramani is sent by the Shi’ar people to destroy the Phoenix. When the Phoenix awakens, the complete destruction of all life in the universe threatens. Whether this storyline is also included in the film is still unclear. Also, which role the shapeshifter Smith (Jessica Chastain) will play, so far can only be surmised.
