“X-Men Apocalypse”, the next blockbuster due from Fox Studios, already has a pretty important storyline. The X-Men have their hands full this time when they face off against the first of mutant-kind. Apocalypse is nearly god-like with his powers and in the comic book event, it took more than a few clever tricks to outsmart the villain. Most would consider this storyline as enough for a movie. According to Simon Kinberg, producer of the next X-Men movie in the series, that may not be the only storyline they’re adapting:
What this translates to is a movie releasing after the one next up to release focusing on the Dark Phoenix Saga. Dark Phoenix Saga isn’t necessarily a person in the comic books but a persistent issue within the X-Men itself. Dark Phoenix is a being made of dark energy that has been slowly growing inside “Jean Grey” since her inception into mutant-kind. Not only does the being give her a factor of dark energy to use with her telekineses, it also adds a dangerous amount of magnitude to her already massive power. No one knows if this storyline will take a backseat to the main storyline at hand or if it’ll be a major contributing factor in the film. ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is set to release May 19th this year. Sophie Turner has been casted as Jean Grey for the upcoming movie. Fans will recognize her from “Game of Thrones”.
