The fans of the X-Men film franchise have been waiting for awhile now for the first look trailer for “Dark Phoenix” and this was just revealed a short time ago. I’ve embedded it for you all to enjoy and even provided come casting and the teaser poster. Let’s take a look shall we.
The Premise: After the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Two things to say first and let’s begin with the knowledge that this isn’t a film that is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and instead was completely assembled by Fox who was ruining, I mean running the property. The second is that Marvel is back on top of their creations but is only connected to this film in name as its owner. The Disney purchase of 20th Century Fox went through and they are eventually going to be integrated with the rest. So that being said I wasn’t sure why they went with this film and I am hoping that this closes the Fox chapter of films and that “New Mutants” never sees the light of day since the trailer looked horrendous. This looks “okay” to me but not much else do I have to say. I didn’t love “X-Men: Apocalypse” and I know a lot of you agree with me. Anyway, its late and I’ve said my piece. What do you think about this trailer? Chime in down below.
