New Mutants, from director Josh Boone, moved again from February 2019 to August 2019 (its second sizeable shift in release date). X-Men: Dark Phoenix meanwhile, from Simon Kinberg, was shunted from November of this year to February of next. Fox took to Twitter to promote the upcoming Dark Phoenix film today with a quick teaser.
The next film in the X-Men franchise will adapt Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum and John Byrne's iconic "Dark Phoenix Saga", which also inspired 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.
Along with Turner, returning cast members include James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. From the looks of it, Jean's growing power as a result of her space mission and her starting to be corrupted as the Phoenix. During a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is almost killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful but far more unstable.More news: Bollywood actress accuses Nana Patekar of sexual harassment

Time marches on for the X-Men team and their experiences here point to the fact that few of them will be queuing up to go on those I Love The '90s shows.
In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey.
The first Dark Phoenix trailer sets up the stage for the film's events, most of which will be centred on Grey, who's the lead this time. Jessica Chastain is the major new addition as a mysterious shapeshifter who manipulates the Phoenix. Instead, it will just be called Dark Phoenix.
