It’s ten years after the events of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and the X-Men are heroes in the public eye. But when a solar flare strikes during a daring space mission, young mutant Jean Grey’s abilities begin to change – and outgrow her control. With the Phoenix rising inside Jean, the X-Men’s greatest challenge may yet come from within.
One of the Marvel universe's greatest storylines comes to new life in DARK PHOENIX. Starring GAME OF THRONES’ Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, along with the current X-Men roster of Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Storm (Alexandra Shipp), DARK PHOENIX will prove a dangerous and emotional struggle both for the X-Men and for Jean herself.
Longtime X-MEN writer/producer Simon Kinberg takes the director’s chair for this newest, darkest entry into the franchise. Bringing a host of complex relationships to the fore, DARK PHOENIX represents a fight for Jean’s soul – and for the future of mutantkind.
