“She’s not Jean anymore.” 20th Century Fox has revealed the third & final trailer for Dark Phoenix, the next X-Men movie focusing on Jean Grey as she becomes the “Dark Phoenix”. This might just be the best trailer yet, saving the best for last, after a few other mediocre trailers released in the last year. This movie is still connected to the previous X-Men series, and brings back most of the actors from the most recent films, but it also looks like Fox is positioning this as a grand finale (following in the steps of Avengers: Endgame opening earlier in the summer). Young actress Sophie Turner replaces Famke Janssen as Jean Grey. The cast includes many old and new members: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, plus Jessica Chastain, Ato Essandoh, and Scott Shepherd. This epic action in this does look pretty dang cool, but it also looks like they’re desperately trying to pull this together after so many major reshoots and delays. Maybe it’ll be okay?

Looking any better? Still excited?
