X-Men Dark Phoenix is based on Marvel Comics’ X-Men characters. The movie is being produced by 20th Century Fox, and it is being distributed by Walt Disney Studio. X-Men Dark Phoenix will be the twelfth installment in the X-Men series. It is the sequel to X-Men Apocalypse. The film is written and directed by Simon Kinberg.
The first trailer for X-Men Dark Phoenix was released in September 2018. The trailer surprised many people as it hinted that a very dark chapter in X-Men history was approaching. We saw Charles Xavier fiddling with the mind of his student Jean Gray. Magneto was back to his notorious ways as he allowed Jean’s destructive power to creep out, which hinted that one of the heroes might lose their life.
The second trailer reaffirmed that Mystique might die in the movie. Simon Kinberg said that the inclusion of Mystique’s death in the trailer would make it, unlike the previous X-Men movies.
He said, “It’s a movie where shocking things happen, where intense, dramatic things happen. People don’t just fall off buildings and dust themselves off and walk away. There’s a reality to this movie and a consequence to this movie.”
The movie was originally going to be released on November 2, 2018. But, it was pushed back to February 14, 2019, in the United States. But, due to some reshoots, there was another delay. The movie is currently scheduled to be released on June 7, 2019.
