Dark Phoenix Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot, Rumors, Movie News & Updates: So, here we have excellent news for the fans of one of the most famous comic book arcs of our era viz. The Dark Phoenix Saga. Economic Weekly reported that this comic is all set to air on big screen. No one is happier than the fans of Jean Grey’s meteoric rise to power.
Earlier also 20th Century Fox tried to get the storyline in X-Men: The Last Stand. In this, The Phoenix was a separate entity which was drawn by the identity of Jean and did not show the pure power of Jean. But this film couldn’t perform up to its potential at the box office. It faced competition from The Da Vinci Code.
The Dark Phoenix
It is being rumored that Skrulls, a shapeshifting alien race, would debut via 20th Century Fox. They will invade the Earth and attack the UN assembly where Jean Grey, Magneto, Cyclops, and Professor X were present along with other people. It would make a time jump and will be set in the 1990s. X Men’s Storm actor has promised a faithful adaptation. The production got wrapped up in 2017.
Dark Phoenix Release Date
The upcoming film is said to be the sequel of X-Men: Apocalypse and the Dark Phoenix will release on February 14, 2019. Earlier, it was scheduled for November 2, 2018. It got postponed.
X-Men has been rebooted and hence, the time has come for DarkPhoenix to rise in all her glory. As we have seen in the climax of Apocalypse, Sophie Turner as Jean was shown at her full power. Turner will reprise the role of Jean Grey.

Jean was scared of her capabilities and was trying to suppress them for so long. She obeyed the words of Professor Xavier and allowed herself to be free. As she became exuberantly free, she destroyed Apocalypse. It was the amazing moment when Jean’s showed her dark side beautifully.

The upcoming movie will revolve around the following plot. The X-Men became the national heroes after defeating the Apocalypse. In 1992, nearly a decade after Apocalypse’s events, they are still on increasingly risky missions. Now, they were on a space rescue mission when a solar flare hits them. In the following event, Jean Grey loses control of her powers and the Phoenix is unleashed.

X-Men movies are known for their unique female characters having various strengths but we are expecting the upcoming movie will be the women-centric movie where women will be more empowered as compare to other.

The post-credit scene of X-Men: Apocalypse shows that Nathaniel Essex a.k.a Mister Sinister exists in this universe. But, will he return in this film? Probably not, but there are many that he would be a part of another spin-off/ movies of the X-Men: Universe.
Will Stryker Appear in Dark Phoenix?
The chances are negligible. It’s because the DarkPhoenix saga is too much complicated to follow. He is a more suitable villain for a Wolverine movie. However, that doesn’t mean that he couldn’t make an appearance. It’s because he was the main antagonist for the whole X-Men team in X2: X-Men United.
He may return as a military man just like he did in the Days of Future Past and Apocalypse. It is possible that he would be seen as the main villain for X-Men: New Mutants or any film after DarkPhoenix. His more affiliation with Wolverine makes fewer chances for him to return in a lead role.
