Set in 1992, about 10 years after the events of last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix opens with the X-Men, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), in a new, unexpected role: national heroes. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) even lands on the cover of Time magazine. But his growing ego puts the team at risk.
As previously reported, Kinberg explains that pride is starting to get the better of Xavier, and “he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions.” One of those missions includes a rescue mission in space where a solar flare hits the X-Jet and “the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean — the Phoenix.”
X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX is set to open in theaters on November 2, 2018.
