New Dark Phoenix Trailer is out, and it has shown us a much darker side of Jean Grey. The film will bring the classic Dark Phoenix arc to the movie. The previous movie based on Jean Grey, X-Men: The Last Stand, was not well-received by the fans.
The movie is set up in the year 1992, nearly ten years after the X-Men: Apocalypse. In the movie, we will see Jean Grey losing control over her telepathic and telekinetic abilities after being hit by a solar flare during a rescue mission and hence unleashing her Phoenix abilities.
This event drives her to the dark side. People close to her worry to control her destructive levels of power. Adding fuel to the problem, we will see an alien shapeshifter, played by Jessica Chastain, try to manipulate Jean for her motives.
The trailer has also given us a hint of the death of a major character Mystique as it was previously suspected. In the trailer, we can hear Jean saying Mystique was her “friend” and in the next snap, we see a funeral.
We can also observe Jessica trying to provoke Jean to use her god-like powers, while X-men still tries to bring back Jean from her dark side.
In the trailer, we can also see many mutants in a train where they have been deprived of their powers. It might also suggest that William Stryker is back in town. In the next moment, Jean enters the scene and rolls the train completely over the tracks.
It would be fascinating to see how efficiently the Dark Phoenix Arc has been covered in this movie.
The movie will hit the theatres on June 7, 2019, revealing out a darker side of Jean Grey.
