Sophie Turner in 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix'

The first official images for X-Men: Dark Phoenix are now online, courtesy of an exclusive with EW, and it looks like there's something of a new direction in the offing for X-Men.

Turner first debuted her role as Grey in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. (He even graces the cover of Time magazine in the film.) As a result, his "growing ego" starts to endanger the team.

The gang takes their first trip to space in the movie, but a solar flare hits their jet and the energy awakens a powerful, sinister force in Jean-The Phoenix, which threatens to take over her mind completely and divide the X-Men. The team will consist of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), with Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) again leading the team. The newest photo from the superhero franchise, released by Entertainment Weekly, teases Turner as young Jean, literally bursting in flames, with sparks flaring out from the cracks on her skin.

Next year, Fox's X-Men series will have a rare second chance to adapt one of the most iconic comic book storylines with X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

It worsened, as 15 investors sold Centrica plc shares while 48 reduced holdings. 83 funds opened positions while 54 raised stakes. In an analyst report published on Thursday, 7 December, Liberum Capital reconfirmed their "Buy" rating on shares of GLE.

The good news for those fans is it looks like new franchise director Simon Kinberg, who also wrote this screenplay, is familiar with the source material and looking to stick closely to it. Kinberg takes over directing duties from Bryan Singer, and confirms that the X-Men will be heading into space. The film will delve into the destruction that Dark Phoenix wreaks upon both Earth and Jean Grey's relationship with her fellow X-Men and beloved mentor Charles Xavier.

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

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

When it was announced that Oscar-nominated actress would play a villain in the flick, many assumed it would be Shi'ar Empress Lilandra Neramani because that character factors heavily into the Dark Phoenix comic storyline. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" arrives in theaters November 2, 2018.
