New xmen Apocalypse sequel
Bogus or not, fans eagerly try to decipher every little clue from these code titles. It’s heavily speculated that the plot will revolve around Jean Grey and her Phoenix abilities, which was hinted at in X-Men: Apocalypse. Actress Sophie Turner is attached to reprise her role as the younger Jean Grey from Apocalypse in the next X-Men installment, which will reportedly begin rolling camera in Montreal this summer, possibly in June. Kinberg himself is reportedly a front-runner to direct the film.
The Jean Grey/Phoenix storyline, though explored in the original X-Men movie trilogy (see X-Men: The Last Stand), is a fan-favorite and a logical, arguably safer, next place to take the newer films. As is the opinion of most fans, Kinberg calls The Last Stand a “Dark Phoenix movie that we didn’t get quite right” and continues to hint that the next X-Men movie will redo the Phoenix story:
I think of maybe a few mistakes we made in that movie — and every movie has mistakes — but the main mistake we made in that movie was taking the Dark Phoenix story, which is such a vast and profound saga, and making it the subplot of the movie as opposed to the main plot of the movie. I think if we were to make a Dark Phoenix movie in the future, it would be a Dark Phoenix movie about her struggle, and really should be the A plot and the primary of the movie.
