20th Century Fox finally dropped the first trailer for Dark Phoenix after a long road marked by delays and lengthy reshoots. The X-Men sequel, which adapts Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s famous Dark Phoenix Saga, centers around the powerful mutant Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), whose latent psychic powers are accidentally unlocked, turning her into a dangerous and destructive force.
The first trailer gives us glimpses of the fiery swath that Jean Grey cuts through the world, harming both the X-Men who love her and Magneto’s band of misfits. But there’s still a lot of mystery left to the trailer, namely the mysterious funeral at the center of the teaser. In the Dark Phoenix trailer breakdown we’ll try to decipher what exactly is happening, and who has died. Let’s dive in.
