Could 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' spell the end of Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique?
In the latest X-Men franchise trailer, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) seems to literally blow away Mystique, and if writer-director Simon Kinberg's words on that pivotal scene are anything to go by, it seems like she may very well not survive that encounter.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, who produces alongside Hutch Parker, Lauren Shuler Donner, Todd Hallowell, 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' sees the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey.
During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain.
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. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Here's the trailer of the movie which 20th Century Fox unleashes in cinemas June 6:
