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 our 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 being directed by Simon Kinberg and also stars James McAvoy, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jessica Chastain, who will be taking on the role of a mysterious villain in the story.
