FIRST LOOK: ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY UNLEASHES THE DARK PHOENIX

Published

on

Entertainment Weekly has given us our first glimpse into what we can expect from Simon Kinberg’s 2018 ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix.’ Fan’s were left with a slightly bad taste in their collective mouths, when 2016’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ didn’t live up to the hype that preceded it. Despite some harsh criticisms of the 2016 film, ‘Apocalypse’ was able to muster a 48% critic score and a 66% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.  We were also able to catch a glimpse of the “Phoenix” growing in Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). Later, 20th Century Fox announced that the next installment in the franchise would be the fan favorite storyline, ‘The Dark Phoenix.’

[blockquote type=”3″ author=”Simon Kinberg”]

“In order to properly visualize the firey transformation of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) into Phoenix, the new X-Men film has a longer post-production period than usual — nearly a year. I wanted the post time to deliver on the nuance of the visual effects, not just the scale of them. That takes time.”

Returning from a mission in space, Jean Grey is exposed to the deadly radiation of a solar flare, and briefly attains her ultimate potential as a telepath and telekinetic. Jean becomes a being of pure thought, and then reforms herself upon return to Earth with the new costume, identity and power of “Phoenix”. It is with this incredible power that Jean repairs the fractured M’Kraan Crystal, but voluntarily restrains her powers afterward in order to keep them under control.

Her vast potential makes her a target for Mastermind, who is attempting to prove himself in order to join the prestigious Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Under the identity of Jason Wyngarde, he begins to seduce Jean. With the help of a mind-tap device created by the Club’s White Queen, Emma Frost, Mastermind projects his illusions directly into Phoenix’ mind. These illusions cause her to believe that she is reliving the memories of an ancestor, Lady Grey, who in Mastermind’s illusions was the Hellfire Club’s Black Queen and the lover of one of Wyngarde’s ancestors. Phoenix eventually accepts the Black Queen as her actual identity, a decadent role that allows her to relish the extremes of human emotion and begins to break down the barriers that she had erected.   -Wikipedia
