But in next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Turner will play the fiery antagonist as Jean Grey will transform into the Dark Phoenix.

"Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions". X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the fourth movie in the series kickstarted by X-Men: First Class.

Some plot details have also been revealed, as Kinberg states the film ventures into space in the opening sequence.

The image comes via Entertainment Weekly and shows Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey.

Set in 1992, about 10 years after the events of last year's X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix opens with the X-Men, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), in a new, unexpected role: national heroes. EW described Chastain's character as an "otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda". Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment. The last time we saw her in X-Men: Apocalypse, she was training the young X-Men in the Danger Room. She's more maternal which surprised me.

Justin Trudeau, Sophie Turner, and the cast of "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" all ate oysters together. THR also reports that Lamar Johnson (The Next Step) has joined the cast in an undisclosed role.

So what do you think of the X-Men: Dark Phoenix stills? Talk about a super team-up... Entertainment Weekly has given us a bunch of X-Men: Dark Phoenix stills to hold us over until the trailer is released.

Previously, Kinberg has expressed his wish to direct the seventh X-Men movie, however 20th Century Fox had seemingly not signed off on the idea, which is somewhat understandable considering that Kinberg has yet to direct a feature.

Writer-director Simon Kinberg did not fully specify exactly how far the film will go in depicting what happens next, but that is true to what happens in the comic.

"They might be the biggest set pieces we've ever done", added producer Hutch Parker.

Well, today is the day we get our first look at the film.
