Never-before-seen footage of X-Men: Dark Phoenix has officially debuted at Wondercon and the descriptions for the footage is pretty epic
The footage begins with a nail-biting meeting between Charles and the X-Men in which Professor X (James McAvoy) informs everyone that he and Scott (Tye Sheridan) are going after Jean (Sophie Turner). As it turns out, Erik (Michael Fassbender) and his Brotherhood of Mutants have found her and plan to kill her. Charles is scared, he doesn’t want to lose anyone else. Scott cuts in, saying they need to go. Charles shows Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) where they are needed and Kurt teleports them to the Brotherhood’s location.
Upon their arrival, somewhere near the Blackbird, they find the Brotherwood waiting. Professor X attempt to reason with Erik. We then see the scene from the trailers where Erik responds, telling his old friend that there is always a speech, and nobody cares. The Brotherhood make their move for Jean. That’s when the X-Men sprint into action and an impressive battle sequence ensues. Cut to Jean, who is talking with Jessica Chastain’s character (who appears to be only visible to Jean), who informs her that they are here to kill her. During the fight, Erik lifts a subway train as a distraction before heading into a building to confront Jean. Magneto brings a metal rail just near Jean’s eye, which she, of course, has stopped with her own abilities. She tells him “You came her to kill me, but couldn’t even do that. Let me show you how it done.” That’s when the footage fades out.
From the look of things, we’re going to be getting a heck of a fight between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants!

Here is a plot synopsis for Dark Phoenix:
“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.”
The upcoming film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019.
New ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Character Posters Feature Surviving & Fallen Heroes
Marvel Studios released new Avengers: Endgame character posters for both the surviving and fallen heroes of Thanos' decimation in Infinity War.
Nearly one year ago, fans were devasted when Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos carrying out his mission to eradicate half of the population in the universe, including several MCU heroes. In exactly one month, fans will finally discover how the surviving Avengers plan to avenge their fallen comrades and potentially undo Thanos' decimation with the help of newcomer Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Now, Marvel Studios has released several character posters not only for the surviving heroes who will embark on a game-changing mission in Endgame but also for those who fell victim to Thanos' eradication in Infinity War.
The line-up includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and many more!

Endgame will serve as both a follow up to Avengers: Infinity War as well as the conclusion to the 22 films that came before it, which have now been dubbed as the Infinity Saga by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, before Marvel kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July.
While plot details still remain under wraps, Earth's Mightiest Heroes are expected to team up with Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and utilize the Quantum Realm in their efforts to undo the decimation from Thanos' snap and bring back half of the universe's population, who were turned to dust by the Mad Titan.
