New concept art from X-Men: Dark Phoenix shows off what Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey could have looked like in her full Phoenix form.
Although many X-Men fans were disappointed with Sophie Turner’s Dark Phoenix, new concept art shows off a fiery vision of what the iconic character could have looked like in the final entry of the Fox films. Dark Phoenix was meant to be a dramatic culmination of the recent take on the X-Men, but reshoots and last minute rewrites meant that the film failed to live up to the expectations that come with the classic Dark Phoenix story by Chris Claremont.
The new concept art by David Masson shows Sophie Turner’s Dark Phoenix completely engulfed by flame as she floats against a cosmic backdrop. The design shows Jean Grey as she’s completely taken over by the Phoenix Force and becomes a being of pure energy. Whether this design would have suited Sophie Turner better in X-Men: Dark Phoenix remains to be seen, but the art itself is incredible regardless. Take a look at the alternate design for Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix below.

Here is the official synopsis for Sophie Turner’s Dark Phoenix:
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 is now available on Digital HD, 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Sophie Turner and the future of the X-Men!
