4The Sole Survivor

Feature Detail

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.

5Enter Genosha

Feature Detail

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.

6Jessica 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.
