What’s Interesting about X-Men: Dark Phoenix Movie Synopsis and Trailer

After success with X-Men: Days of future past and X-men: Apocalypse, now the latest sequel to X-Men is titled X-Men: Dark Phoenix. As the name suggests, the fourth film of the X-men series will focus on Phoenix and its newest power. Let's find out more by looking at X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie synopsis and trailer.

As explained earlier, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will tell you about Phoenix or Jean Grey (played by Sophie Turner) who has new powers that eventually transform it into the strongest mutant in the Marvel universe. This new power came when Professor X (played by James McAvoy) decided to take the X-Men to go out into space in search of signs of new life. Unexpectedly, it turned out that Phoenix was able to absorb the power from the sun, turning her into Dark Phoenix.

There is not much to find out from X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie synopsis and trailer, besides the fact that this film will take the setting of 10 years after the X-Men: Apocalypse event, and will adapt the storyline from the X-Men comic titled Dark Phoenix Saga. Even so, Simon Kinberg, director of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, stated that this film would be 'loosely adapted' from its comics issue, giving a little nod here and there, but not taking the whole story. This is done to prevent speculations related to the storyline of the latest X-Men film. However, Kinberg promises a fresh and more dark and gritty feel than before, with additional plots that "never happened in any superhero movies ever".

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will also focus on the relationship between Jean Grey and Scott Summer/Cyclops (played by Tye Sheridan). As already clearly seen in the early films of X-Men, Jean Grey and Scott Summer have already established love between each other, before Grey finally fell in love with Wolverine.

Besides Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will still rely on the same cast line as the previous sequel, namely Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence. As for the villain, there is one name that will appear first in this film. She is Jessica Chastain who is rumored to be playing a villain named Lilandra. However, there are also other sources who say that Jessica Chastain will be a Miss Sinister, the nemesis of X-Men in the comic series. Which one is true? Only time will tell.

What's interesting about X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie synopsis and trailer is the news of the involvement of Krulls. If this is true, it will be the first moment where villains undergo cross-universe in two universes at once as Krulls will also appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe film, entitled Captain Marvel.

That's the little we can take from the X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie synopsis and trailer. The film is scheduled to air on February 14, 2019. However, Simon Kinberg as director instructed several changes. The release date could be postponed. While waiting, we better just look at the Trailer of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
