Dark Phoenix expected to return to Montreal for additional photography
The latest X-Men film, Dark Phoenix, has gone through as many deaths and resurrections as the title character.
According to a Collider report, Dark Phoenix is adding some action to the third act, adding some new scenes, and providing some extra coverage for some of the other scenes that have already been filmed for the movie. Again, this is fairly standard stuff, and not entirely out of the ordinary for a tentpole blockbuster.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a brand-new adaptation of The Dark Phoenix Saga. Set in the 1990s, the follow-up to X-Men: Apocalypse will follow Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as she struggles to contain her burgeoning powers and the fallout that they can cause. In addition to Turner, the film will see the return of fan-favorite X-Men mainstays like James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, as well as newcomer Jessica Chastain — whose role remains firmly under wraps at this point in time.
The 1990s-set mutant adventure will premiere on the big screen on February 14, 2019!
