Oh yes, and in case you've forgotten, the X-Men saga also comes to a close this summer with Dark Phoenix after 12 films and 19 years. Sophie Turner (who plays Jean Grey) popped up unexpectedly yesterday to announce a 'surprise' for fans and a final trailer for Dark Phoenix appears to be it. Check it out above to get a first look
The X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain.
With Jean spiralling our of control and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite - not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponise this force and rule the galaxy.
