X-Men: Dark Phoenix is currently in production. It is written and directed by Simon Kinberg, who wrote previous X-Men movies Days of Future Past and Apocalypse, and has acted as a producer across the whole series since 2011’s First Class. Last month, a first on-set image of Tye Sheridan as Cyclops was revealed.

Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are also set to reprise their roles. X-Men: Dark Phoenix hits theaters on November 2, 2018.

The film is based on the classic Dark Phoenix saga from Marvel’s comic books. It focuses on Jean Grey becoming corrupted by the Phoenix Force that provides her with her powers, and turning them against the X-Men.

In related news, the X-men spinoff sequel Deadpool 2 is also currently shooting. Earlier this week, the first image of Zazie Beetz as Domino was revealed by star Ryan Reynolds.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
