'Dark Phoenix' To Be Last Film In Fox's 'X-Men' Series

The upcoming Dark Phoenix trailers have given fans an idea of what to expect, clearing some doubts that fans may have had for this movie. However, the impact that this movie will have on fans might shock people. March saw the finalization of the Disney-Fox deal, hence signing over the titles of X-Men and Fantastic Four to Disney and as an extension, to Marvel Studios.

CinemaCon addressed many dates for upcoming movies and even provided a lot of information on what to expect from Disney. Fox executive Emma Watts called the movie the “perfect sendoff for our X-Men Team.” For those who held some hope that these iterations of these characters would join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this would be sad news.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Check out the synopsis below:

“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 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 7th.
