The latest issue of Empire Magazine may be putting the spotlight on Marvel’s Black Panther, but there’s a treat for fans of the X-Men series in there as well.
Empire has revealed a never-before-seen image from next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, featuring Michael Fassbender’s Magneto in deep trouble. We don’t really know what’s going on here due to the secrecy surrounding the movie, so we’ll just have to wait and see how Magneto found himself in this spot as we head closer to its release.
You can check out the image below.
Per Empire, Dark Phoenix picks up about ten years after the events of Apocalypse and finds the X-Men operating as heroes, something that fuels Professor X’s ego. After sending the team on more and more dangerous missions, Jean Grey is left in a dark place after an evil force is awakened within her.
Speaking with the magazine, Sophie Turner, who plays the young Jean in the movie, had the following to say:
“It’s about duality, darkness and light, this sense of her being a completely other person and struggling with that…”
Directed by X-Men veteran Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix also stars James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix hits theaters on November 2nd, 2018.
20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox…
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
