Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2, 2018 and will have Simon Kinberg in the lead. This will be his second stab in the iconic story, since his first attempt was in the year X-Men: The Last Stand . He wrote the script for that film, but for this director's debut

"[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to deliver this to someone else to lead, "says Kinberg.
Dark Phoenix takes place in 1992, which is 10 years after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. The team will consist of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), with Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) again leading the team. The group sees itself as heroes for a change, but that is beginning to affect Xavier in a negative way.
"Pride is starting to bring out the best in him, and is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions," says Kinberg
That's what drives him to send the team on a space rescue mission , paving the way for a solar flare to hit the X-Jet and awaken the described Phoenix hungry for power within Jean.
