A brand new trailer for Dark Phoenix teases the conclusion of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise and Jean Grey’s (Sophie Turner) newfound power. After a decade of X-Men movies that produced various results, Fox decided to bring back the franchise with a soft reboot in X-Men: First Class that re-introduced younger versions of heroes audiences had already met. New versions of Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) became the center of the story, but then X-Men: Apocalypse introduced another batch of young and familiar X-Men.
Apocalypse featured the debut of Turner as Jean Grey, as well as Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. They were positioned as the future of the X-Men franchise, with Dark Phoenix set to be the beginning of their story. However, once the Disney-Fox deal became a possibility, the narrative around Dark Phoenix turned from a new trilogy starter to the conclusion of the entire Fox era of the X-Men. With two trailers already released that teased the Jean-centric story, a new trailer has arrived to further flesh out her journey.
Twentieth Century Fox debuted the third and final trailer for Dark Phoenix this morning, which continues to keep the focus on Jean Grey. A portion of the trailer is dedicated to showing exactly how Jean gets the power of the Phoenix Force and how she is changing thanks to it, while also mixing in plenty of action.
