First Look At Jessica Chastain's X-Men: Dark Phoenix Character

"I would call Dark Phoenix a drama", Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly in a quote accompanying the funeral image. The mutant team are now national heroes, with James McAvoy's Charles Xavier landing on the cover of Time Magazine - and inflating his ego a little too far.

While rumors have been swirling that Disney is still working towards a deal to buy Fox's entertainment properties, that doesn't stop the X-Men franchise from moving forward with its next film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

One of the most beloved comic book stories in the history of superhero comics, "The Dark Phoenix Saga" took the X-Men into space where Jean Grey came face to fiery face with the cosmic force that is the Phoenix.

Sophie Turner has never looked hotter.

The image comes via Entertainment Weekly and shows Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey.

Featuring numerous same mutant characters from Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix looks to take the franchise to new and exciting places (including outer space!), while continuing the saga of the young Professor X, Magneto and Mystique that began in X-Men: First Class. Simon Kinberg is directing a cast that includes franchise veterans Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver) alongside new additions Jessica Chastain and Lamar Johnson.

Though, be prepared: "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering".

When it was announced that Oscar-nominated actress would play a villain in the flick, many assumed it would be Shi'ar Empress Lilandra Neramani because that character factors heavily into the Dark Phoenix comic storyline. When talking about her inspiration for the character, she said, "Simon and I were talking about the character and I said, 'I keep thinking of the vet who tells you you need to put your dog down.' There's something very clinical about it".

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is due out in theaters November 2, 2018.
