X-Men: Dark Phoenix Story Synopsis 

20th Century Fox delivered a revelatory gift of goodies to X-Men fans. In the pages of Entertainment Weekly's upcoming 2018 preview, Sophie Turner's Jean Grey, aka the Phoenix, has consumed the cover with fiery grace. With an iconography that suggests something closer to what comic fans expect from the Phoenix, it is the first image in a bevy of photos that reveal some interesting details.

For starters one image corresponds with the story details teased to EW by Simon Kinberg and company that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will include the famous sequence where Turner's Jean will become possessed by a cosmic force when the X-Men go to space. According to EW's press release, which amounts to our first synopsis, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is only the beginning of this epic, which should be quite familiar to X-Men fans.

After the 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 – played by Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner – the Phoenix. While Jean is both the hero and villain, Dark Phoenix also introduces an other-worldly (and for now, top secret) shape-shifter (Jessica Chastain), who attempts to manipulate Phoenix for her own agenda.

What is also interesting about this tease is it would suggest that Jessica Chastain will be taking on the role of the original Dark Phoenix Saga's Emma Frost (who is deceased in X-films after being played by January Jones in X-Men: First Class). However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks. And if she is a shapeshifting alien, it might suggest she could be the famed alien race the Skrulls, as opposed to the previously assumed part of Lilandra, the space empress of the Shi'ar Empire, who plays a major role in the Dark Phoenix Saga's ultimate finale. If Chastain is not Lilandra, might this indicate that Simon Kinberg envisions this as a two-part story?

At the very least his focus on apparently Turner's Jean and Chastain's unnamed character caught Chastain's interest, an actor with very passionate and public views on the role of women in film. (She previously worked with Kinberg when the latter produced The Martian in 2015.)

"I’ve always wanted to do a big comic book film, but I had some issues with the female characters I was being offered," Chastain told EW. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don’t know how many comic-book films can say that."

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be released on Nov. 2, 2018.  The cast includes   James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult as Beast! The main "young mutants" introduced in X-Men: Apocalypse are also back: Sophie Turner as the titular Jean Grey/Phoenix, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. Notably, the announcement does not include Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in the last two X-Men movies.
