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:
Turner, Sheridan and Shipp are the new mutants on the block.

Sophie Turner (Sansa, GAME OF THRONES) will portray Jean Grey/Marvel Girl/Phoenix; Tye Sheridan will play Scott Summers/ Cyclops; and Alexandra Shipp will be Ororo Munroe/Storm.
