The film notably includes "a massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise", EW reports.

In Entertainment Weekly's latest issue, director and writer Simon Kinberg revealed that the team's venture into outer space is the catalyst for Jean Grey's transformation into the Phoenix. Dark Phoenix, her own spinoff movie partially based on the comic by Chris Claremont, gives an even deeper look at her character's uncontrollable, and sometimes destructive, telepathic abilities.

"I would call Dark Phoenix a drama", Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly in a quote accompanying the funeral image.

The magazine also has some story details for the sequel, confirming that it takes place ten years after X-Men: Apocalypse and is set during 1992.

While "Dark Phoenix" is still nearly a year away, here's a first look at Sophie Turner's character that will get you excited for the newest "X-Men" installation.

Sophie will still be portraying her X-Men character of Jean Grey, who showed off her power in 2016′s Apocalypse. The film will delve into the destruction that Dark Phoenix wreaks upon both Earth and Jean Grey's relationship with her fellow X-Men and beloved mentor Charles Xavier.

Arriving in theaters on November 2, 2018, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Olivia Munn, and Jessica Chastain.

"This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven", star James McAvoy says. "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering." . In Dark Phoenix, Jean and the team will head to space for a rescue mission and encounter obstacles along the way.

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

When it was announced that Oscar-nominated actress would play a villain in the flick, many assumed it would be Shi'ar Empress Lilandra Neramani because that character factors heavily into the Dark Phoenix comic storyline.
