Breaking Down The First Dark Phoenix Trailer
#4- The Sole Survivor
In a shot of what appears to be Jean’s mutant powers manifesting for the first time, we see her sitting in the backseat of a car and tapping her feet together, causing it to crash into another oncoming vehicle head-on. While Jean’s able to shield herself from harm thanks to her abilities, we can assume her parents aren’t as lucky.
#5- Enter Genosha
Here, we get our first look at the island of Genosha. In the comics, Genosha was a safe haven for mutants that was ruled by Magneto. In the film, it appears Genosha will be where Erik settled following the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, and now, Jean has come to him in search of answers.
#6- Jessica Chastain’s Mystery Character
We don’t know much about Jessica Chastain’s character in the film, other than the fact that she’s a villainous shape-shifter who goes by the name of Smith. This doesn’t correspond with any traditional X-Men villains from the comics, but many have speculated that she’s actually a Skrull. Others believe she’s Lilandra, the Shi’ar Empress, but either way, we know she’s up to no good.
