One of the most iconic comic book stories is the Dark Phoenix saga, the X-Men story where powerful psychic Jean Grey is driven mad by a sudden boost to her telekinesis and nearly destroys the universe. It’s a story of love and betrayal and fury, which has captured the imagination of comic fans for generations. Now Chris Claremont’s legendary tale is brought to life (again, but we like to pretend X3: X-Men United doesn’t exist) with Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner in the role of Jean Grey.
From the summary:
The X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe when one of their own, Jean Grey, starts to spiral out of control. During a rescue mission in outer space, Jean is nearly killed when she's hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. The X-Men must now band together to save her soul and battle aliens that want to use Grey's new abilities to rule the galaxy.
It looks like we’re going to see one of the major characters in the universe get killed off pretty early on! For more movie-spoiling twists, check out the trailer below.
