One of them is Deadpool 2 and the other is X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The Phoenix, in the form of Jean, appeared as the primary antagonist in "X-Men: The Last Stand". We don't have a trailer for the film yet, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a whole new bunch of images for the film.

Here we have Charles Xavier, Nightcrawler, Beast, and Storm reunited in what looks to be a funeral scene. X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the next installment in Fox's mutant shared universe, is hitting theaters in a little less than a year. "We would like the next movie to feel grounded and even gritty and risky in ways that we haven't really seen an X-Men movie be". 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.

Speaking of Jennifer Lawrence, Mystique is back with a brand new hairdo. But if one or more of these incredibly busy actors signed a contract to return for just one more X-Men movie, that might make sense. "She's grown up a lot", says Lawrence. She's more maternal which surprised me.

In June, it was announced Chastain was in talks to join the cast as a villain.

Navigating the dual role was a challenge for Turner, who told EW she studied the ways mental differences manifest themselves to best portray the turmoil within Jean. "There's something very clinical about it".

Writer-director Simon Kinberg did not fully specify exactly how far the film will go in depicting what happens next, but that is true to what happens in the comic.

Well, here it is. Though, this wouldn't be the first time that the X-Men franchise has attempted Dark Phoenix in a film.

Indeed, the actress also revealed that her blue-skinned trickster has "grown up a lot" since Apocalypse - Dark Phoenix takes place a full 10 years after Bryan Singer's forgettable threequel - and is much more maternal when it comes to protecting Charle and his school of mutants. This will be his second time writing within the iconic storyline, as his first try was in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. In this concept art, we see the moment when an intergalactic flare unlocks Jean's Phoenix powers.

And you thought Sansa Stark had it rough.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is now scheduled to be released in theaters on November 2nd, 2018.
