They also help explain the lengthy post-production time on Dark Phoenix, as the filmmakers wanted to ideal the visuals on the first X-Men film to be set in space, according to EW.
"Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions", Kinberg says. It was confirmed then that the movies would be following "The Dark Phoenix Saga" story line from the comics. The Game of Thrones star, who is starring in the highly-anticipated X-Men: Dark Phoenix, goes up in flames as Jean Grey on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's new issue. (The events of Dark Phoenix take place almost a decade after X-Men: Apocalypse, which is why only some fan favorites are able to return for the sequel.) The film, set in 1992, will closely follow the events of the "Dark Phoenix Saga" in the X-Men comic books.
We got our first details earlier today on Fox's upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix film. Kinberg also reveals in the cover story that he asked for a longer post-production period than usual to "deliver on the nuance of the visual effects", which is great news. He was a producer on X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and the writer of Days of Future Past and Apocalypse. She's more maternal which surprised me. Jean becomes corrupted by Phoenix Force that provides her with her powers, forcing her to turn them against the X-Men.
Joining Turner is Jessica Chastain in an as-yet-unnamed, top-secret role.
Now, on a much lighter note, he stopped by to say hello to the cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. But if one or more of these incredibly busy actors signed a contract to return for just one more X-Men movie, that might make sense. Though he wrote the screenplay for Last Stand, he did not direct it, so this will be the director's debut in the storyline and it's something that he holds close to his heart. But we certainly want to enter into new areas that the X-Men haven't entered into before. "We would like the next movie to feel grounded and even gritty and risky in ways that we haven't really seen an X-Men movie be".
