Watch The ‘Dark Phoenix’ Cast React To Jimmy Kimmel Spoiling A Major Death

The cast of Dark Phoenix recently sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to promote the movie, but the host spoiled a major death during the interview.

The current cast of X-Men comprising of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult have been mainstays of the X-Men franchise since their first appearance in 2011’s X-Men: First Class. Many fans have come to love and cherish these characters and their actors and have become quite emotionally invested in this franchise.

However, it seems not everyone cares about the outcome of these characters. While promoting Dark Phoenix, the cast appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about the film and the host himself himself dropped a major spoiler about the movie. You can watch the moment at the 3:27-minute mark in the video below.

Mystique’s fate has been known for a while now but it seems as though it was meant to be kept under wraps. While it’s a big death, Jimmy Kimmel is actually right when he says, “this is not a spoiler.” The fate of Mystique was revealed by director Simon Kinberg months ago, following the release of the first Dark Phoenix trailer.

In the video, the cast members look stunned, with many seemingly caught off guard that such a significant plot point was mentioned on air. While the death was confirmed months ago, it seems that when the film went under Disney’s management, the marketing for the film changed significantly, and that plot point was meant to be concealed. Prior to the Disney Fox merger, it seemed that this film was the “passing of the torch” from the X-Men: First Class crew to the young X-Men who were introduced in X-Men: Apocalypse, bunow it seems the film will be the final outing for the X-Men.

Are you excited for Dark Phoenix? Do you wish Mystique’s death was kept a secret? Let us know your thoughts down below!

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

Dark Phoenix will be released in theaters on June 7, 2019.
