It has come to light that a new X-Men movie is currently in development and is rumoured to be revisiting the Dark Phoenix storyline arc from the Marvel Comics.
According to a casting website, the new X-Men movie is being called X-Men: Supernova, with the working title of “Teen Spirit” and has the following synopsis offering hints at the plot:
Gathered together by Professor Charles Xavier to protect a world that fears and hates them, the X-Men had fought many battles, been on adventures that spanned galaxies, grappled enemies of limitless might, but none of this could prepare them for the most shocking struggle they would ever face. One of their own members, Jean Grey, has gained power beyond all comprehension, and that power has corrupted her absolutely! Now they must decide if the life of the woman they cherish is worth the existence of the entire universe!
It’s further said X-Men: Supernova will start filming in June in Montreal and likely will see the return of Sophie Turner from X-Men: Apocalypse, and given that this feature will take hints from the Dark Phoenix arc, it seems X-Men may be heading to outerspace.
