Director Hints at Something "Darker" Growing Inside "X-Men: Apocalypse's" Jean Grey

Thanks to the rebooted timeline created by "X-Men: Days of Future Past," Bryan Singer has another shot at the Scott Summers-Jean Grey relationship in his upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse," after the last attempt at the classic comics duo, which culminated in the controversial "X-Men: The Last Stand."

The director has opened up about Jean (Sophie Turner) and Scott's (Tye Sheridan) blossoming relationship in the '80s-set X-Men flick, and hinted at a possible "darker" side of Jean in the film -- suggesting another potential Dark Phoenix story on our hands.

Singer told Entertainment Weekly: "In the beginning, she's the last thing he's interested in. When he first comes to the mansion, Scott's blind so he can't see her. Suddenly he gets some glasses and now he can see her and he's like 'Oh! That's Jean Grey.' Both of them are misfits in a way. Other mutants have settled in with their powers. This is all new to Scott Summers and he doesn't like it and he doesn't like school. And Jean she has not only has her telekenisis and her telepathy but she also knows inherently that something darker and more powerful is growing inside her and she doesn't quite know what it is."

"X-Men: Apocalypse" hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
