IGN has unveiled a new X-Men: Dark Phoenix photo that offers a first look at Kota Eberhardt as Marvel Comics villain Selene.
On Wednesday night, 20th Century Fox released the first official trailer for the next X-Men film titled Dark Phoenix and fans noted that Michael Fassbender’s Magneto had assembled his own team of mutants during a scene in which he argues with Charles Xavier. Now, a new photo from the film reveals Kota Eberhardt as villainous Selene, a character from the comics who traditionally has ties to the Hellfire Club.

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
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 February 14, 2019.
