First look at Jessica Chastain in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

It was something of a surprise that Lawrence, McAvoy, Fassbender, and Hoult all returned for Dark Phoenix, since their contracts expired after Apocalypse.

The famous Dark Phoenix saga follows the powerful telepath Jean Grey as she is overtaken by a formidable dark force that unleashes her telepathic and telekinetic potential, but threatens to destroy her persona in the process.

Even as talks continue regarding a merger of Disney and Fox, the latter is forging ahead with its successful X-Men franchise, premiering a first look at "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

It's also confirmed that Jean Grey will become the Phoenix (naturally), and the movie will be a "fight for her soul" that "splits the X-Men".

The magazine also has some story details for the sequel, confirming that it takes place ten years after X-Men: Apocalypse and is set during 1992. But his growing ego puts the team at risk.

Turner ignited the cover of Entertainment Weekly's First Look Issue as Jean Grey this week.

Instagram may roll its inbox into a standalone messaging app called Direct
For starters, it's another big step in Instagram's metamorphosis from photo sharing site, to broader social networking platform. Direct has been launched for testing on Android and iOS in six countries: Israel, Chile, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay.

"Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions", director Simon Kinberg says.

Featuring numerous same mutant characters from Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix looks to take the franchise to new and exciting places (including outer space!), while continuing the saga of the young Professor X, Magneto and Mystique that began in X-Men: First Class. But if one or more of these incredibly busy actors signed a contract to return for just one more X-Men movie, that might make sense. Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018, and will have Simon Kinberg at the helm.

This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven.

Turner said "It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening".

When it was announced that Oscar-nominated actress would play a villain in the flick, many assumed it would be Shi'ar Empress Lilandra Neramani because that character factors heavily into the Dark Phoenix comic storyline.
