In what seems to be a withdrawal of promotional power from the forthcoming X-Men movie – Dark Phoenix – in comparison to the fervour in which Apocalypse was promoted – there hasn’t been much visibility since the merger of Disney and FOX went into effect. Especially seeing where they premiered the trailer. But nonetheless, 20th Century Fox has released an official poster for Dark Phoenix that is a celestial beauty.
Dark Phoenix synopsis reads:
In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. Wspirallingspiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
