When the X-Men return to the big screen, they will do so in their most comic book-accurate costumes yet. A recent photo from the set of X-Men: Dark Phoenix has surfaced on Twitter, offering a first look at the team of mutants' superhero costumes.
The picture may have been taken from afar, but there is no mistaking that the costumes worn by actors Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee and the rest of the cast appear to be lifted straight from the comic book page. The matching uniforms are dominated by the color blue, with a large yellow 'X' logo on the torso. This design seems to be largely inspired by artist Frank Quitely's work on the New X-Men comic series, which he worked on with writer Grant Morrison.

What's more, these new costumes seem to honor the cinematic team's very first mission in X-Men: First Class, when Professor X and his students sported blue and yellow flight suits. Now however, the team has fully embraced its roots as a superhero team. This will surely come as great news to X-Men fans, who have been waiting a very long time for the team to appear on the big screen with comic book-accurate costumes.
Opening Nov. 2, X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Ship as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
