Marvel Dark Phoenix Plot – In 1992, nearly a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, the X-Men are national heroes going on increasingly risky missions. When a solar flare hits them during a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey loses control of her abilities and unleashes the Dark Phoenix !!
After X-Men: Days of Future Past erased the events of X-Men: The Last Stand from the series’ timeline, Kinberg expressed interest in a new, more faithful adaptation of Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s “The Dark Phoenix Saga” in a future film than his previous attempt with The Last Stand, which was not well received.

Filming began later that month in Montreal, and was completed in October 2017, with reshoots taking place in late 2018.

Marvel Dark Phoenix Cast
James McAvoy as Charles Xavier / Professor X:
A mutant pacifist and the world’s most powerful telepath, he founded Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.

A powerful mutant who can control magnetic fields and manipulate metal, he is Xavier’s former best friend and often rival.Magneto has formed a community of mutant refugees on the island of Genosha, which Kinberg compared to Israel in it being a homeland where mutants can be safe.
Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkhölme / Mystique:
A shape-shifting mutant and Xavier’s adopted sister. Lawrence described her role in the film as more maternal than previously, as she leads the younger X-Men The film continues growing the schism between Mystique and Xavier, with Mystique not approving of some of Xavier’s methods, though Kinberg hoped that this would be more subtle in Dark Phoenix than in previous X-Men films.
