Sure, they'd been done before, but rather poorly. But before that, the studio will finish the initial series almost 20 years later with the final installment of the franchise: Dark Phoenix.
Just the scene where she confronts Magneto "threatening her" speaks volumes on the potential that this film has to close out this chapter of X-Men history in a strong, satisfying manner. Now, with Turner starring in the movie, Dark Phoenix can hopefully grab some of that audience that's still excited for Game of Thrones - especially with the latest trailer. It remains to be see what Disney's MCU wants to do with their newly acquired X-Men, but for fans of the Fox films, this will be your last hurrah. Enjoy it while you can.
Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) starts to change despite Professor X's (James McAvoy) teachings.
Picking up in 1992, almost a decade after the events of that film, its final trailer finds Jean earning her mutant stripes after a rescue mission in deep space goes horribly wrong, resulting in her being engulfed by a powerful explosion that decimates her ship. 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.
Perhaps the greatest asset this trailer for Dark Phoenix presents is the fact that we see a clear line of story for Jean's ascendence into darkness. While Apocalypse may have faltered, we can only hope that Dark Pheonix can right some of the wrongs, and cap off this new generation of X-Men films in a big way. But the current version of the mutant superhero team will get at least one more cinematic outing, with Dark Phoenix releasing in June.
