The next installment in the long-running X-Men series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will see the mutant heroes battling one of their own, telepath Jean Grey, when she is driven mad after being possessed by the Phoenix, an entity of nearly unlimited power.
Entertainment Weekly has the first images from next fall’s big movie, depicting star Sophie Turner (Sansa, GAME OF THRONES) as Phoenix. When she turns evil, she becomes known as Dark Phoenix.
According to director Simon Kinberg, the Phoenix force is awakened after a solar flare hits the team during a mission in space. First-time helmer Kinberg wrote and produced a number of previous X-flicks.
Here are EW‘s three exclusive images from the movie:
An all-female Avengers team called A-Force will emerge from the Secret Wars event, taking over after older versions of the team have disbanded (or worse), Marvel Comics has announced.
The team will be led by She-Hulk; Dazzler; Medusa; Nico Minoru; Singularity, a new heroine with cosmic powers; and others to be announced.
The cover of the first issue, drawn by Jim Cheung, features a huge potential roster, including: She-Hulk, Medusa, Singularity, Dazzler, Nico, Storm, Scarlet Witch, Rogue, Phoenix, Wasp, Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman, Pixie, Elektra, Rescue, Spider-Gwen, Black Widow, Moondragon, Snowbird, Aurora, Capt. Marvel II, Hellcat, Firestar, Vindicator, Jubilee and Spectrum.
The good folks over at gaming site IGN apparently had a little free time on their hands, so they decided to make a video covering every X-Man in the Marvel Comics universe — ever. That’s a pretty daunting task on its own, but the editors also decided to try to explain X-Men continuity! They do a pretty good job for such an expansive subject.
It all goes by too quickly to be sure IGN got everyone, but it looks to be pretty inclusive.
