Suffice it to say, a LOT has happened since I shared the first trailer for the 20th Century Fox feature “Dark Phoenix” with the main thing being that the deal by Disney to own the studio was given the nod and the process has begun on the legal side. In time, the X-Men and Fantastic Four licenses will be fully under Disney control for future features. Also, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” has won all sorts of awards and the world eagerly awaits both “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” which will both be released before this film hits the theaters. For those who didn’t know the news, “Dark Phoenix” was pushed back a few months and will now be released in June instead of its originally scheduled February. Earlier today a second trailer was released to the public and I’ve embedded it for you all to enjoy and even provided some casting and another 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.

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.
