Fox unleashes a glorious new poster ahead of tomorrow’s new trailer…
Despite the imminent acquisition of Fox by Disney and the rights to characters like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four defaulting back to the Marvel Studios umbrella, we have one last X-Men movie to look forward to this summer. Dark Phoenix may well represent the last roll of the X-Men dice for Fox, but with Marvel assuming full control of the mutant roster we can all look forward to a future where Wolverine and co will fight alongside earth’s mightiest heroes.
Ahead of the debut of tomorrow’s new trailer, Fox has unleashed a cool new poster to whet our appetites which features the duality of Jean Grey’s persona. In addition, the new poster boats all the major players, including Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and more.
The plot for the movie is as follows:
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.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix concludes the 20th Century Fox mutant era on June 7th.
