Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters this summer, and with that comes a new image showcasing Jessica Chastain alongside Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey.
Courtesy of Universo X-Men on Twitter, a new image from Dark Phoenix shows what almost looks to be a possessed Jean Grey — speculation here — next to Jessica Chastain’s character. The character who has yet to be named, mind you, but many will continue to wonder. Is she Cassandra Nova? Is she really Lilandra after all? There’s no telling just yet, but it looks for sure that Chastain’s character has a special interest in Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey. Here, have a look at the Dark Phoenix image below.

With the mystery surrounding Jessica Chastain’s character, it begs the question of whether she won’t be fully revealed until Dark Phoenix hits theaters. In the meantime, though, what do you think is going on in this picture? Why does Chastain have such an invested interest in Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey? And what do you think this could spell for the rest of the X-Men?
More than that, when do you think we could get another trailer for the Dark Phoenix film? Maybe something comes paired with Alita: Battle Angel? Let us know your thoughts on this and more in the comments below and stay tuned for more Dark Phoenix updates.
Dark Phoenix is written and directed by Simon Kinberg and stars Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. The film is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
