X-Men: ‘Dark Phoenix’ trailer two released

20th Century Fox has dropped a new trailer of the next X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. Jessica Chastain, who plays an elusive new villain in the film but now fans were treated to a new look with a new trailer.

For McAvoy, who plays Charles Xavier, that difference also explores the possibility of someone new coming into taking on the franchise’s popular roles.

“I love playing Charles. But you’ve got to write something interesting for you to do as an actor, you can’t just keep doing the same thing again and again and again. So it may be time for somebody else to come in,” McAvoy told MTV News.

The trailer opens with a distraught Jean Grey crying in the rain, clearly heartbroken after recent events.  Jean begins to address the Phoenix within her as though it’s a separate entity. Actress Sophie Turner has noted that playing this part required her to do a lot of research on mental health issues, particularly on schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder.

Dark Phoenix arrives in theatres on 7 June 2019.
