New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Trailer Arrives Alongside A Poster
Check out the latest footage from the 2019 film.
Jessica Chastain appeared on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show last night, where she introduced a teaser for the new trailer for the upcoming superhero movie X-Men, Dark Phoenix. Since then, we've gotten a full version of the trailer, which you can watch above. We've also gotten a new poster that prominently features Jean Grey; you can see that below.
Dark Phoenix releases in theaters on June 7 and is directed by Simon Kinberg, who makes his directing debut after years as a writer and producer on X-Men movies. Sophie Turner returns to play Phoenix, while Chastain plays the main villain. In the interview with Fallon, Chastain teased that her character might kill someone. "I get to beat up a lot of X-Men in the movie. Maybe kill some. It's an intense movie, but we had fun," she said.
Dark Phoenix and the other X-Men spin-off, New Mutants, are said to be the last X-Men films to be separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney is buying the majority of Fox's entertainment assets, so X-Men characters could become integrated into the MCU.

In a recent interview, Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige could take charge of the X-Universe as well. "I think it only makes sense," Iger said. "I want to be careful here because of what's been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn't be two Marvels."
