Not much story yet, just glimmers. But those look good, intriguing and have lot of suspense. Love the music. Still wonder who Jessica Chastain playing now.
They change on big part of comic history though

The acquisition didn't happen out of the blue. It has been in the works for a long time. Surely much longer that it has been made public. Plus, who said it wasn't made at the script-writing phase? Olivia Munn said just a year ago:Spectral Knight wrote: ↑27 Sep 2018, 12:36Whether a film and its story is split into two should surely be made at the script-writing phase, long before you ever get to production, so I don't think it's got anything to do with the Fox acquisition. More they wanted to get a movie out quickly, and rather than take a considered approach, they've gone back to a well they already spoiled the first time. It's an utterly pointless exercise for all involved.
This really indicates that they planned out a two-parter but had to keep it under wraps probably because they didn't know how the acquisition would go down. If the Disney-Fox deal fell through, we might have gotten the two parter. As it stands, it doesn't seem like we're getting it (Feige probably wants the Fox x-movies to be over and done with).I don't know what I'm supposed to say. I'm supposed to be vague. That's my answer. I'm horrible at that. It's like a two-parter, this movie. That's more than I've said, in general. I don't know why people have to be so secretive."
If so, why wouldn't she just say it has two acts? She's an actress, she should know the proper wording. And why would she complain about them being secretive about it? Not only is it not that big of a thing to be a secret, it wouldn't affect her since Munn is nowhere near the credits of Dark Phoenix nor is she in any of the released images from the movie. Why would an actress that's not involved not only know about the narrative structure of the film but be talking about it in interviews and complain about it being secretive? Makes no sense to me.
This won't be two movies. This is likely the last X-Men for the next few years.Magnus wrote: ↑27 Sep 2018, 16:46An article that has an interview with Chastain with more info on her character: https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/09/27 ... n-villains
Also some stuff in there that makes me think the "Dark Phoenix is one of two movies" theory has merit.
I initially thought that seemed so long, but then I saw that Disney waited around 3 years before The Force Awakens was in theaters. Assuming the deal goes through early next year I'd say late 2020 for some kind of an announcement and 2021 for release. I really wouldn't be surprised if that's moved up. They've probably had ideas for integrating the X-Men for years. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Wolverine before a whole cast film.
