The first X-Men: Dark Phoenix photosof Sophie Turner have been revealed, and she is absolutely on fire as Jean Grey. Previously-announced films that will have IMAX releases from the studio will also include Maze Runner: The Death Cure, The Predator, and Alita: Battle Angel.

As the holidays near, 20th Century Fox has delivered a gift of goodies to X-Men fans. Here are the first images, beyond that glimpse of the magazine cover above. "Pride is starting to get the better of him", he says, "and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions". In outer space for a "rescue mission", they encounter a powerful solar flare that ignites Jean Grey's (Sophie Turner) full power and awakens the cosmic force known as Phoenix.

In the new film, which takes place in 1992, the X-Men are no longer shunned outcasts, but national heroes. However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks. The Last Stand tried to use a resurrected Jean Grey (then played by Famke Janssen) as the Dark Phoenix who was being manipulated by Magneto (then played by Ian McKellen). If Chastain is not Lilandra, might this indicate that Simon Kinberg envisions this as a two-part story?

EW also features an interview with Turner, who talks about taking on this challenging role.

"The thought of not working with them is nearly excruciating to me", Turner said. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don't know how many comic-book films can say that".

This time around, however, Kinberg appears to have more creative freedom, as the film ventures to space within its opening minutes.

Deadline broke details about the cast in June. In addition to the beauty of the visual effects, James McAvoy has called Dark Phoenix, "the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven", which makes for an interesting balance and may ease the minds of fans who worry about tackling the Dark Phoenix on the big screen.

Aside from Turner and McAvoy's characters, we'll see the return of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters).

Lastly, it's important to realize that this will be the X-Men's first film with an intergalactic angle to it. It has also been confirmed that Dazzler will be one of the new mutants in the movie, although she hasn't been cast yet... That means it is now before the events of the original X-Men, a change instituted by X-Men: Days of Future Past.
