Simon Kinberg notes that the post-production for Dark Phoenix has been quite intense and taken over a year to get right, to properly get the look of Sophie Turner's Jean Gray. "We have really great action scenes and we go to space like within the first five minutes of the movie". It also meant the Phoenix saga in that film never existed, so Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has free reign to tell the story the way it was meant to be told.

With the Dark Phoenix storyline already tackled in X-Men 3: The Last Stand, I'm curious on how Kinberg is planning to bring something new to the table.

Lawrence also mentioned that she had a good experience playing Mystique this time around. By the way, Dark Phoenix is set in space.

In outer space for a "rescue mission", they encounter a powerful solar flare that ignites Jean Grey's (Sophie Turner) full power and awakens the cosmic force known as Phoenix.

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" will be set in 1992, a decade after the events of the franchise's previous installment, 2016′s "X-Men: Apocalypse". We don't have a trailer for the film yet, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a whole new bunch of images for the film. She's more maternal which surprised me.

Dark Phoenix is, well, dark as evidenced by this photo of Charles (James McAvoy), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) mourning something or somebody. EW described Chastain's character as an "otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda".

Lastly, it's important to realize that this will be the X-Men's first film with an intergalactic angle to it.
