She is fire and life incarnate and she’s here in the first Dark Phoenix trailer to usher in both the beginning and end of all things. God help us all.


The Dark Phoenix Saga is one of the most important stories in X-Men history that fundamentally changed the core team’s dynamic and made readers see all of the characters, especially Jean, in new shocking lights. After multiple adaptations and retellings of the original story over a variety of formats, Fox’s latest attempt to get the Phoenix “right” is finally upon is.

Dark Phoenix blazes into theaters February 14, 2019.

Charles Pulliam-Moore is an NYC-based culture critic whose work centers on fandom, pop culture, politics, race, and sexuality. He still thinks Cyclops made a few valid points.

I have to admit it looks good. I would never stop laughing if, now that it’s ending and going to Marvel/Disney to be inevitably rebooted, they got it right.

That being said, what is Hollywood’s obsession with hiring redheads and making them into blondes!?! In another world, Jessica Chastain would have been a perfect adult Jean Grey. Now, I’m guessing she’s Emma Frost?
