“Sometimes, we want to believe people are something that they are not…” 20th Century Fox has debuted a second official trailer for Dark Phoenix, the next big X-Men movie focusing on Jean Grey as she becomes the “Dark Phoenix”. This movie has been delayed and nearly forgotten, but it’s still coming out this summer. It’s connected to the previous X-Men series, and brings back a few of the characters from the most recent movies. Sophie Turner (from “Game of Thrones” and Josie) replaces Famke Janssen as Jean Grey; she already appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 as Phoenix. The cast includes many old and new members: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, plus Jessica Chastain, Ato Essandoh, and Scott Shepherd. This looks like they’re really trying to live up to Jean Grey’s legacy, going all out on VFX and epicness. Watch out.
