While it might not be doing so well in the reviews, the Phoenix Saga that the latest X-Men film is based on is actually one of the best storylines in the Marvel universe.
For those unaware Jean Grey is a powerful mutant who can’t really control her current powers, when she fuses with the power of the Phoenix and unleashes her ultimate potential. Unfortunately, this brings out bad thoughts, people entice her, and its all-out destruction. It’s then up to the X-Men to try to fight and/or save their colleague, friend, and lover.
The cast understands how important this story is, and more importantly how important a female protagonist in the superhero film world is. In the above video Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, and Evan Peters tell us why they wanted to complete this saga.
‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ releases June 7, 2019.
