The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly gives us our first real look at the hotly-anticipated superhero sequel. It's one of the most famous X-Men comic book runs of all time, originally published in 1976-1977, and sent ripples throughout the Marvel universe. After they're dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner)- the Phoenix.

Dark Phoenix marks Kinberg's first attempt as a director, with Jennifer Lawrence remarking how different the set was compared to previous shoots.

Arriving in theaters on November 2, 2018, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Olivia Munn, and Jessica Chastain.

And so, after lifting the curtain on its fiery cover, along with those high-res action shots that brought us closer to Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Jessica Chastain's mystery villain - the Internet is now of the belief that Chastain is actually playing the Skrull Queen, not Lilandra Neramani.

Meanwhile, Lawrence also touched on the inflated ego of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), whose delusions of grandeur threatens to tear the X-family apart. In addition to the beauty of the visual effects, James McAvoy has called Dark Phoenix, "the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven", which makes for an interesting balance and may ease the minds of fans who worry about tackling the Dark Phoenix on the big screen.

Hugh Jackmam says James Bond scripts were 'unbelievable'
He further added how he did not get any choice at that time as he said, "And the response was: 'Oh, you don't get a say". So there's some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw 'Logan , ' I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes.

If you don't want to know any plot details for the next X-Men film, turn back now.

Though, be prepared: "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering".

"Simon and I were talking about the character and I said, 'I keep thinking of the vet who tells you you need to put your dog down, '" says the actress of her inspiration. Turner studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare for this hard, volatile role.
