AceShowbiz - One major "X-Men" character reportedly will be killed off in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix". Fans have yet to get a single official image from the upcoming "X-Men" film since production on the flick wrapped over a month ago, but a new report from That Hashtag Show has emerged revealing some new plot details.
According to the news outlet, fans can expect a major character death when Jean Grey (%cSophie Turner%) finally loses control and goes full on Phoenix in the Simon Kinberg-directed flick. The site claims that the helmer seemingly "is holding nothing back and that in a moment when Jean's powers are on full display, they will become too much for the hero to handle."
At this point, only Mystique (%cJennifer Lawrence%), Magneto (%cMichael Fassbender%), Professor X (%cJames McAvoy%) and Beast (%cNicholas Hoult%) remain as mutants left standing from "X-Men: First Class". While the ill-fated character's identity is not revealed yet, one of them apparently will be "unequivocally" killed when she/he is impaled by Phoenix while she's displaying her full power.
No other details are known about "Dark Phoenix" as of now. Also written by Simon Kinberg, the film will center on Jean Grey, who develops dangerously amplified telepathic powers when she comes into contact with the Phoenix, a cosmic entity that eventually takes over her personality. The connection births the Dark Phoenix and transforms Jean into a deadly force battling the X-Men.
The upcoming film also sees the return of %cEvan Peters% as Peter Maximoff a.k.a. Quicksilver. Reprising their roles from "X-Men: Apocalypse" are %cOlivia Munn% as Psylocke, %cAlexandra Shipp% as Ororo Munroe a.k.a. Storm, %cTye Sheridan% as Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops and %cKodi Smit-McPhee% as Kurt Wagner a.k.a. Nightcrawler. %cJessica Chastain% joins the cast as Lilandra, while %cDaniel Cudmore% and %cLamar Johnson% appear in undisclosed roles.
"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" is coming to theaters across the nation on November 2, 2018.
