Today we get another look at Simon Kinberg’s new X-Men film, Dark Phoenix, ahead of this summer’s premiere. The international trailer delves into Jean Grey’s accident and her powerful return.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix finds the gang of superheroes confronted with their most formidable foe to date, which just so happens to be one of their own in Jean Grey. Following a near-fatal incident, during which she is struck by a mysterious cosmic force, she becomes overtaken by this entity, also leaving her more powerful than ever before.
