A First Look at "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"

First 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' Images Reveal Jessica Chastain and a New Look for Mystique

Check out the first images of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and find out how it hews closer to the comics.

Producer Simon Kinberg and the cast gave EW some insight into the project.

As the holidays near, 20th Century Fox has delivered a gift of goodies to X-Men fans. Check out the EW cover with the first look at Turner below.

"I kind of f-ed myself", Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly.

After the X-Men team is dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean - the Phoenix.

Dark Phoenix marks Kinberg's first attempt as a director, with Jennifer Lawrence remarking how different the set was compared to previous shoots. However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks.

Bryan Singer Fired From Queen Biopic Amid Reports of Erratic Behavior
The film's cinematographer, Thomas Newton Sigel , stepped in as a substitute director during several of Singer's absences. One source told THR that Singer claims to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, due to on-set tensions.

X-Men: Dark phoenix promises a much more true-to-comics adaptation of the saga than The Last Stand, with fans being promised a space-based adventure for the X-Men. "Duh!' Then they offered me the movie, and I was like, 'Goddammit!'"

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set for release on November 2nd, 2018.

Jessica Chastain joins the cast too in a yet to be disclosed role.

Aside from Turner and McAvoy's characters, we'll see the return of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters). At some point in the film, one of the X-Men is going to bite the dust, but it's unclear who. That suffering is nearly certainly going to come at the hands of Jessica Chastain's villain - Lilandra, Empress of the Shi'ar Empire. However, Chastain has since denied that this is her character, and given what we now know about her role in the film, rumors that she may be the Skrull Queen seem quite possible. Kinberg also reveals in the cover story that he asked for a longer post-production period than usual to "deliver on the nuance of the visual effects", which is great news. The last time we saw her in X-Men: Apocalypse, she was training the young X-Men in the Danger Room. Jean becomes corrupted by Phoenix Force that provides her with her powers, forcing her to turn them against the X-Men. The Canadian PM made global waves when he publicly supported refugees after the current USA government tried to deny Syrian ones who had been granted entry into the U.S.

So what do you think of the X-Men: Dark Phoenix stills? We don't have a trailer for the film yet, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a whole new bunch of images for the film. Though he wrote the screenplay for Last Stand, he did not direct it, so this will be the director's debut in the storyline and it's something that he holds close to his heart. He will also produce alongside Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker. "I suddenly felt more connected to my character than I ever have been before".
