The First X-Men: Dark Phoenix TV Spot Fires up the Action
Now that Disney’s acquisition of Fox is complete and the X-Men are back in Marvel Studios’ hands, the franchise will seemingly undergo a reboot. Before that, though, fans will get the chance to say goodbye to the Fox’s mutants as Dark Phoenix soars into theaters this summer. Today, the X-Men movies Twitter posted the first Dark Phoenix TV spot, showing us more. A few snippets of new footage show Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey embracing the Phoenix Force. And her warning Michael Fassbender’s Magneto that threatening her is “a bad idea” is fire.
In Dark Phoenix, 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 spiraling out 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 weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Dark Phoenix hits theaters on June 7. Check the TV spot out below, then let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
