Jessica Chastain's Villain Looks Fierce in 'Dark Phoenix' First Look

"It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening", Turner told EW.

The X-Men are boldly going where they've never gone before.at least, not in the movies.

It's unclear if that's the extent of the space travel in Dark Phoenix, but there's plenty of it in the comics.

Originally Dark Phoenix showed up in X-Men: The Last Stand, which ended in Jean Grey's death at the hands of Wolverine. Jennifer Lawrence is also back as the shape-shifting Mystique, so we can only imagine the kind of tussles she'll get into with Chastain's character.

The first X-Men: Dark Phoenix photosof Sophie Turner have been revealed, and she is absolutely on fire as Jean Grey. Jean is both herself and the mighty Phoenix - a personality that may have always be within her, but that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) helped repress - and her unlocked power makes both sides of her incredibly unstable. After they're dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner)- the Phoenix.

May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker fell short of a breakthrough, despite some encouraging progress on the Irish border issue.

But in next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Turner will play the fiery antagonist as Jean Grey will transform into the Dark Phoenix. According to EW, Chastain's character is an "otherworldly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda". She's more maternal which surprised me.

In June, it was announced Chastain was in talks to join the cast as a villain.

Lastly, it's important to realize that this will be the X-Men's first film with an intergalactic angle to it. Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment.

Though much of what plagues Jean will come from within, she'll also be tormented by Jessica Chastain's now unnamed character, an "otherworldly shapeshifter" who deftly manipulates Jean and the Phoenix for her own nefarious goals. "What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?" This marks his directorial debut, taking the reins from Bryan Singer, who directed Days of Future Past, Apocalypse and the 2000 original X-Men film and its 2003 sequel, X2.
