The fourth chapter in the prequel world is centralised on Jean Grey / Phoenix (Sophie Turner), who is losing control of her powers within, with Professor X (James McAvoy) doing his best to curb the firebird from within.
Set in 1992, less than a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, in which Jean Grey unleashed the firey Phoenix power to defeat Apocalypse, now the threat of her mystical power may consume.
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 is in cinemas from June 7, 2019.
