The movie also stars Nicholas Hoult as the beast, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Kodi Smit-McPhee as the Nightcrawler, and the Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey whom most of the story will revolve. There are talks that the alien Shi’ar Empress will be played by Jessica Chastain. Evan Peters also return in the series as Quicksilver. While most of the characters in the film will be played by returning stars, there are rumors that Rogue will be replaced and Dazzler will have an appearance.

The Dark Phoenix already started even before the release of the Apocalypse. It is mostly focused on Jean Gray just like what Bryan Singer, director for the previous series, has said that there is something dark and powerful growing inside Jean Grey.

What is The Dark Phoenix?

Jean sacrificed herself when she is escaping the space station that exploded. She piloted the X-Men's ship which led her to be exposed to a serious level of radiation. But before she died, something happened. A character called the Phoenix showed and offered her a power which she can use to be able to save her friends and herself. She accepted this offer which also showed that she accepted the Phoenix to herself. Later, she saved Lilandra, D’ken, and Shi’ar with her newly acquired powers.

A group in Earth called the hellfire club tried to manipulate Jean's dark side. They failed thus it resulted in the release of the Dark Phoenix. Jean cannot control herself anymore. With so much power, she blew up some inhabitable planets. Her control of herself goes back for a limited time where Shi’ar showed up. Shi’ar said that they are not pleased with what Jean is doing that is why they fought the X-Men to have the right to destroy the Phoenix. Jean sacrificed herself again because of the damage she’s been bringing.

There are different rumors about what will be the ending of this movie. Since it has not been released yet, fans are dying to know what will happen to Jean and the X-Men. As we all know, the series had not failed the fans in laying out surprises since the first installment of the series. As the number of theories adding up in different websites, all we can to do is wait for the real movie to be released.

This latest movie will be set in the 90s which follow the pattern of the previous installments. Though there are lots of mind-boggling ideas being said by fans right now, we have to expect that something big will happen in this movie that will change a lot of things for the whole series.
