20th Century Fox released the first image of Dark Phoenix but they also revealed new details about the plot of the film.  The beginning of the transformation of Jean Gray into the Phoenix was presented in X-Men: Apocalypse but that process is not going to change quickly, since Dark Phoenix takes place a decade after the events of that movie. Her power has grown immensely at that time, of course, but director Simon Kinberg reveals that it is the growing ego of Charles Xavier that finally puts her in touch with her destiny.
"Pride is beginning to dominate him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions," said Kinberg EW .
That pride is manifested thanks to the growing popularity of X-Men, something they had not experienced before. That team consists of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters).
One would think that it would be the students who have that problem, but you should think that it is quite nice for Xavier (played once again by James McAvoy) to be recognized also for his hard work. That said, it will push the team to expand its influence even more, and that results in the team undertaking a space rescue mission, which puts the X-Jet in contact with a solar flare.
That flare is what will ignite the immensely powerful Phoenix force that Jean holds within her, and as you can see from the beginning, that probably will not be a smooth process. The study describes Dark Phoenix as the "most sinister and grim" film of the X-Men franchise, and triggers a huge twist in the middle of the film that "will change the course of the franchise."  "This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've ever done and the most driven by pathos," says McAvoy. "There is a lot of
The X-Men will fight for the soul of Jean against the Phoenix that is trying to take over completely his ship and play that role for maximum effect Jean Gray's actress Sophie Turner studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders.
"It's about the butterfly effect of this happening," Turner said. "What happens when the person you love most falls into darkness?"
Fans will discover when Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2, 2018.
