Now they must decide if the life of the woman they cherish is worth the existence of the entire universe!

All the rumors you’ve heard in the past few months are true. Fox has set Simon Kinberg to make his directorial debut with 2018's X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will return much of the cast from 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse—and possibly add an Oscar nominee too.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the villainous Lilandra, who’ll face the X-Men in a story that centers on Jean Grey’s incredible powers and transition into the Dark Phoenix.

Deadline reports those X-Men will be all familiar faces. Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee will all be back in their mutant roles.

Kinberg was rumored to be Fox’s choice to direct back in February but it wasn’t official until now. He’s written several of the previous X-films and produced almost all of them since X-Men: First Class rebooted the franchise. He’s hoping this film will be more in line with the original Dark Phoenix stories than its previous on-screen adaptation in X-Men: The Last Stand.

As for Lilandra, it’s unclear if her comic book origins and powers, which are much more cosmic than the X-Men films have been to date, will be true to form.

The film has a scheduled release date of November 2, 2018, which puts it third on the list of upcoming X-movies. First will be Josh Boone’s New Mutants on April 13, 2018. Then there’s David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018, followed by Dark Phoenix.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Nerdist reports that Genosha—the infamous African island first introduced in the late 1980s as a mutant allegory to apartheid and slavery, before being turned into a mutant paradise and later being destroyed in 2001's E is for Extinction storyline—will play a pivotal role in the new X-Men movie.

They also add that apparently Magneto will get a “cult-ish” costume tweak for the movie, alleging that Michael Fassbender has requested that Magneto begin looking like a leader of “sheeple” in the movie—perhaps hinting that the film will see the master of magnetism expand his reach and influence to develop a wider following of his own.

Meanwhile, speaking at Denver Comic Con, Famke Jansen stated she doesn’t think she’ll return for any future X-Men movies:

It’s the gift that keeps on, kept on giving I think we’re done, but it was really great while it lasted and it lasted for a long time. It’s been nothing but a pleasure working not just as Jean Grey, which was such an honor because comics were so fantastic already, but then the entire cast who I got to play with, all my fellow actors, thespians who are so talented. It was just a wonderful experience. I’m very grateful.

Let's get this thread going ... this is very interesting movie. IMO.


Plot : Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.


Cast (is great) : Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Sophie Turner , Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee ....

Has also received a new release date, pushed back to February 14th 2019. So instead of 3 X-Men Movie we will only get Deadpool 2. Wonder what is going on with them?


Now this one I don’t get. Isn’t this one completely done and they’ve even released promo stills?? The X-Men franchise has been poorly handled lately, to say the least :(

I don't know the reasons behind this push up and find it very strange. The original release date did not had much competition. Maybe they simply can't get the Special Effects done, or want to change something bigger, or it has something to so with the Fox purchase from Disney ?
