Sophie Turner in 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix'

EW Unveils Fiery First Look At Sophie Turner's Jean Grey In X-Men Dark Phoenix

This new film, set to premiere November 2, 2018, will explore a darker side of the mutant heroine's powerful mind.

As the holidays near, 20th Century Fox has delivered a gift of goodies to X-Men fans.

Sophie Turner graces the cover as a seemingly nude Jean Grey, save for the fire that looks set to burst from her very skin. Here are the first images, beyond that glimpse of the magazine cover above. Longtime X-Men writer and producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut, revealing in a a recent Entertainment Weekly article that Jennifer Lawrence encouraged him to make the jump to the director's chair.

"I kind of f-ed myself", Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly. After they're dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean (Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner)- the Phoenix.

EW has begun to shed some of the first light on the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix flick. However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks. It was confirmed then that the movies would be following "The Dark Phoenix Saga" story line from the comics. If Chastain is not Lilandra, might this indicate that Simon Kinberg envisions this as a two-part story?

Turner also stated that she would have to fight this new opponent without the help of her former mentor, Littlefinger, who Stark killed in season seven.

"The thought of not working with them is nearly excruciating to me", Turner said. I'm not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles.

This time around, however, Kinberg appears to have more creative freedom, as the film ventures to space within its opening minutes.

In June, it was announced Chastain was in talks to join the cast as a villain. The team will consist of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), with Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) again leading the team. She was portrayed in the film by actress Famke Jansen. The last time we saw her in X-Men: Apocalypse, she was training the young X-Men in the Danger Room.

Justin Trudeau, Sophie Turner, and the cast of "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" all ate oysters together. The Canadian PM made worldwide waves when he publicly supported refugees after the current US government tried to deny Syrian ones who had been granted entry into the U.S. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I'm sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.

Just met "the dude".thank you Canada for such a progressive, impressive and somewhat suggestive real life superhero.

But the X-Men film franchise was rife with numerous reports of a hostile work environment which includes accusations from Ellen Page that The Last Stand director Brett Ratner displayed homophobic and misogynistic behavior during the production of the film; and Bryan Singer being reportedly absent, on a consistent basis, from the set of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Well, today is the day we get our first look at the film. But we certainly want to enter into new areas that the X-Men haven't entered into before. "I suddenly felt more connected to my character than I ever have been before".
