"It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening", she said. 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.

The movie takes place in 1992, a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. (The events of Dark Phoenix take place almost a decade after X-Men: Apocalypse, which is why only some fan favorites are able to return for the sequel.) The film, set in 1992, will closely follow the events of the "Dark Phoenix Saga" in the X-Men comic books.

"OMG." Turner wrote in a January 23, 2015 Twitter statement when she announced that she won the coveted role of Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Charles Xavier was recognized and awarded the cover of Time magazine.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover of their "First Look" issue, which features the first photos from X-Men: Dark Phoenix. "She's grown up a lot", says Lawrence. However, it appears the energy may be too much for her, as she can be easily manipulated by an outside force, which comes from Chastain's character, who happens to be a shapeshifter. "There's something very clinical about it". The writer-turned director was forced to reduce the Phoenix Saga into a mere subplot in The Last Stand, in order to make room for the central story thread about a "cure" for the mutant gene. "Honestly, the person who most really wanted me to direct was Jen Lawrence", says Kinberg.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. "That's what triggers, awakens, creates this Phoenix force and voice inside her". As Turner said, "so many scenes I have to go from broken-down Jean - that's when she's most susceptible to Phoenix infiltrating her - to this confident, arrogant, judgmental character within milliseconds". This will be his second time writing within the iconic storyline, as his first try was in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. Turner's onscreen Game of Thrones sister, Maisie Williams, plays a role in X-Men: Mutants, which will also be released in 2018.
