I remember growing up reading X-Men, they were always my favorite, and it remains my all-time favorite comic from Marvel, back issues only of course. Reading about Dark Phoenix and the power she had always made me love the character, and made me want to learn more about her, and even her origin story.
Fast forward and today we got the second trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and opinions are split down the middle.
As much as I enjoyed this comic, I’m afraid Sophie Turner isn’t doing Jean Grey any justice. We see a lot of “female force” within this movie, including within Jean herself, the character Jessica Chastain plays, Storm, and Mystique. Even the director Simon Kinberg said in a recent interview that this was going to be a female-centric movie.
In my video below, I go over just exactly what Simon had to say, and break down the new trailer piece by piece in order to see if this movie is going to be worth its price tag.
