New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Trailer Arrives Alongside A Poster

  • The New Dark Phoenix Trailer is Finally Here to Eviscerate Worlds

Dark Phoenix comes from writer/director Simon Kinberg. The trailer shows her coaching Jean, telling the young mutant, "You're special". Jennifer Lawrence has been over playing Mystique since about five minutes since she got cast, so I'm not sad if she does, indeed, exit the movie early on. She's a mentor figure to Jean, and she stepped into danger to do what she thought was right. "Mystique's death is the thing that fractures the family of the X-Men", Kinberg explains to EW. He also wanted the death to sting for X-Men fans, and not just have Mean Jean Grey blow up "a building with anonymous people in it..." "I get to beat up a lot of X-Men in the movie". "One that at times is the mentor, at times feels nearly maternal, at times is friendly".

From there, we see Jean/Phoenix struggling to find the balance between the dark side and the light. Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy, admits that she might kill them all and he doesn't know what to do. During a rescue mission in outer space, Jean is almost killed when she's hit by a mysterious cosmic force.

But Jean isn't alone in the strength of her powers. "Even more than that, it was to show that Jean/Dark Phoenix is genuinely a threat to everyone, including the X-Men". Even if she's revived mid-movie, and superhero movies and television shows have done this a few times, it's still an incredible spoiler to drop and lose some of the mystery. Kinberg agrees. "Professor X doesn't have all the answers", he says. "That is a scene where you feel that sometimes his answers are wrong".

Dark Phoenix is slated to release in June in India.

One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K [Azad Jammu and Kashmir] while other fell inside IoK [Indian occupied Kashmir]. But the Pentagon declined to say if Shanahan has communicated directly with his Indian or Pakistani counterparts.

Usually, when a trailer outright spoils something as big as the death of a main character or a complete change of direction for an established hero (as with when Terminator: Genisys' trailers revealed that John Connor was in fact a Terminator now) you have to wonder if they've completely lost their heads. "Or are you the most powerful creature on the planet?" This sets up the external conflict of the film even as the internal conflict rages within Jean.

So, Mystique dies while trying to save Jean, and the X-Men become divided over what to do next. She was my friend'. Is there an additional enemy at play? And if the epic trailer that's just been dropped is anything to go by, it's going to be seriously good. Could Dark Phoenix offer a more hopeful end for Jean Grey than previous tellings of the story?

Towards the end of the Dark Phoenix trailer, though, we see them held captive on a train by heavily-armed soldiers - a clear sign of the resurgence of mutant panic.
