AceShowbiz - "Dark Phoenix" isn't coming until next summer, but a new look at the next X-Men movie has surfaced online. First released via Total Film magazine, the image puts the highlight on Sophie Turner's Jean Grey.
The photo reveals Jean Grey's brand new costume, which design appears to follow the source material. The new outfit's hues are similar to the costumes seen in Grant Morrison's "New X-Men" series. Other X-Men members in the film are expected to wear the costume.
Previously, a gif shared on X-Men Movies official Twitter page showed Jean Grey unleashing her power as the Phoenix. "She's all rage," read the caption.
The "X-Men: Apocalypse" sequel focuses on Jean Grey, who embraces her dark side. According to the official synopsis, 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.
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence reprise their roles as Charles Xavier, Magneto and Mystique, respectively. Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke) are also returning for the twelfth installment in the "X-Men" film series.
Jessica Chastain joins the cast as the villain, a mysterious shapeshifter who manipulates the Phoenix to use her power, while Scott Shepherd stars as Jean's father Dr. John Grey. Simon Kinberg writes and directs the movie, which is scheduled to be released on June 7, 2019 in the United States.
