X-Men: Dark Phoenix Enlists Avatar, Smokin' Aces Cinematographer

Recognized at the Academy Awards for his work filming James Cameron's Avatar, Fiore is exceptionally experienced -- which is good news for fans of the X-Men franchise. More recently, the cinematographer has worked on Training Day, Real Steel, The Equalizer, and The Magnificent Seven.

Just yesterday, director Simon Kinberg confirmed that the movie has finished filming. The film, which is Fox's second attempt of the iconic '80s story The Dark Phoenix Saga, is described as a grounded take on the source material. Actress Olivia Munn, who debuted as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, has revealed that the movie may be only the first of a two-part narrative.
