Post-production on X-Men: Dark Phoenixwill last a year, reportedly to accommodate the setting and Turner's numerous transformations. This marks the first time a proper entry in the X-Men franchise hasn't been released in the spring.

Turner's Jean Grey will pick up the storyline from the ashes of the poorly received 2006 film "X-Men: The Last Stand".

Check out the first images of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and find out how it hews closer to the comics. Kinberg wrote the script and is directing the Dark Phoenix project. Jean is both herself and the mighty Phoenix - a personality that may have always be within her, but that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) helped repress - and her unlocked power makes both sides of her incredibly unstable. EW says that it's then that "a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean- the Phoenix".

The film is set in 1992, 10 years after the events of Apocalypse.

Joining the cast as the villain is Jessica Chastain (Molly's Game).

In X-Men: Apocalypse, Turner's Jean Grey teamed up with Michael Fassbender's Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique, and James McAvoy's Professor X to stop Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) from destroying the world.

"The Dark Phoenix" isn't the only highly anticipated project the actress can look forward to.

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" opens in theater November 2nd, 2018. According to EW, Chastain's character is an "otherworldly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda". At some point in the film, one of the X-Men is going to bite the dust, but it's unclear who. It has also been confirmed that Dazzler will be one of the new mutants in the movie, although she hasn't been cast yet...

"OMG." Turner wrote in a January 23, 2015 Twitter statement when she announced that she won the coveted role of Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse.

This wouldn't be a proper Phoenix movie if someone didn't die and X-Men: Dark Phoenix knows it.

Writer-director Simon Kinberg did not fully specify exactly how far the film will go in depicting what happens next, but that is true to what happens in the comic.
