The Dark Phoenix saga is one of the most memorable and pivotal stories in the X-Men comics and now we finally got a look at the latest installment of the highly anticipated sequel to the mutant franchise tonight in the new trailer.
Set a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, in Dark Phoenix the X-Men are now national heroes. But when a solar flare hits them during a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) loses control of her psychic abilities and becomes a terrifying and overwhelming threat.
Synopsis: 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.
