X-Men: Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner believes the upcoming Fox sequel will revolutionize superhero films.
Speaking with Empire Magazine, the Jean Grey actress spoke highly of franchise veteran Simon Kinberg, who makes his feature directorial debut with Dark Phoenix. “Simon has been the brain behind X-Men for years, and it’s really exciting to have what feels like one of our own rise up and take hold of the franchise, and direct it in the way that he sees it," Turner said. "I have to say he’s one of the best director I’ve ever worked with. He’s so passionate and collaborative.”
Describing the film as a "dark, gritty drama," Turner continued, "We are revolutionizing it. We wanted to create a whole new genre of superhero movie.”
Arriving in theaters on Nov. 2, 2018, director Simon Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme/Mystique, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers/Cyclops, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast, Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Monroe/Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver, Olivia Munn as Psylock, and Jessica Chastain in a still-unrevealed role.
