Come June, the world is going dark.
X-Men has dropped a new teaser for its upcoming Dark Phoenix installment featuring a major change in Sophie Turner's character, Jean Grey, and the death of Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique!
It came as new addition to the cast Jessica Chastain, who plays villain Smith, convinces Jean to go against the order of Professor X (James McAvoy) and harness her power toward the darkness, causing her to kill "a friend, a family." Can the rest of the X-Men stop and save Jean?

Director Simon Kinberg explained its realistic motive to Entertainment Weekly: "The thought process behind that was to primarily show that this is a movie that is unlike other X-Men movies. It’s a movie where shocking things happen, where intense, dramatic things happen. There’s a reality to this movie and a consequence to this movie. Even more than that, it was to show that Jean/Dark Phoenix is genuinely a threat to everyone, including the X-Men."
He added that this isn't the only major casualty we'll get to witness in the movie. Check out the movie's new poster, too, showing the two becoming sides of Jean.
Dark Phoenix arrives June 7th.
