Simon Kinberg notes that the post-production for Dark Phoenix has been quite intense and taken over a year to get right, to properly get the look of Sophie Turner's Jean Gray.

The famous Dark Phoenix saga follows the powerful telepath Jean Grey as she is overtaken by a formidable dark force that unleashes her telepathic and telekinetic potential, but threatens to destroy her persona in the process.

There's not a whole lot of information about the upcoming 2018 release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but we now have our first sneak peek and it looks pretty awesome.

While "Dark Phoenix" is still nearly a year away, here's a first look at Sophie Turner's character that will get you excited for the newest "X-Men" installation.

Lucy Boynton also stars as Mary Austin, Mercury's muse and lover. " 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is a passion project of mine". For his part, Singer accused Fox of refusing to give him time off to deal with health issues of one of his parents.

The magazine also has some story details for the sequel, confirming that it takes place ten years after X-Men: Apocalypse and is set during 1992.

The Entertainment Weekly issue with the X-Men: Dark Phoenix cover seen here is out on shelves December 8.

In addition to familiar faces including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, the images reveal series newcomer Jessica Chastain as a mysterious shapeshifter villain who looks to use the Phoenix for her own personal gain.

Sophie made her debut as the young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, but she's getting the standalone movie she deserves.

That dog, one imagines, is Jean Grey/Phoenix, and Chastain's character likely advocates killing her entirely rather than trying to bring Jean Grey back.

"It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening", Turner added. "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" arrives in theaters November 2, 2018.
