"It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening", Turner told EW.

Sophie made her debut as the young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, but she's getting the standalone movie she deserves.

Do you think the creative minds behind the film can successfully adapt the Dark Phoenix story this time? According to EW's reporting, the X-Men are hailed as national heroes after mounting a rescue mission on the edge of space - which, in turn, causes Jean Grey to be exposed the sinister energy force that starts the Dark Phoenix storyline off.

Speaking of Jennifer Lawrence, Mystique is back with a brand new hairdo.

The first image from the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been released. Jean is both herself and the mighty Phoenix - a personality that may have always be within her, but that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) helped repress - and her unlocked power makes both sides of her incredibly unstable.

Simon Kinberg directed the latest "X-Men" movie, which is coming to theaters November 2018.

Turner also stated that she would have to fight this new opponent without the help of her former mentor, Littlefinger, who Stark killed in season seven.

Here's Jessica Chastain as a "quiet but brutal" villain, an otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don't know how many comic-book films can say that". One of them is Deadpool 2 and the other is X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Notably, the announcement does not include Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in the last two X-Men movies. Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment. As Turner said, "so many scenes I have to go from broken-down Jean - that's when she's most susceptible to Phoenix infiltrating her - to this confident, arrogant, judgmental character within milliseconds". Still Kinberg has a long history with the franchise, having written or co-written the screenplays for X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: The Last Stand.

Now, on a much lighter note, he stopped by to say hello to the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
