After months of being labeled a “disaster” by multiple sources and even more months of reshoots, we finally have……a new Dark Phoenix poster.
I mean it’s not a bad poster, it’s just this movie has had two underwhelming trailers and been pushed back so many times that it’s looking like it might be heading to HULU along with The New Mutants.
Now as for the poster itself, it doesn’t inspire much more confidence. It has Jean Grey front and center and she is (on one side) wearing the EXACT same maroon jacket Famke Janssen wore in the hated X-Men The Last Stand. Check it out below:
How hard is it FOX, to pull this iconic costume off:
So basically we are just waiting for Dark Phoenix to sweep this still born turd under the carpet and wait patiently for Disney to reboot it.
The film is written and directed by Simon Kinberg, and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men must face the full power of the Phoenix (Turner) after a mission to space goes wrong.
Dark Phoenix is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 7, 2019.
