Sophie Turner may be reprising her role as Jean Grey from the X-Men series sooner than we think! FOX has just announced their future superhero lineup and X-Men: Dark Phoenix is slated to be released on November 2, 2018.
For those who don’t know, the Phoenix is the codename Jean (Turner) picks up after reaching her peak psychic and telekinetic levels. Marvel has run with this character and her saga multiple times across all its platforms, including TV, comics, and movies. However, it has yet to be touched upon in the new era of films until now.
Sophie also mentioned earlier this year that she would be returning to the role later this year. She stated, “We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we’ve just finished shooting Season 7 of [Game of] Thrones, and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”
Sophie was most likely talking about filming on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. However, with the film due out next year we should be hearing something concrete soon!
