Dark Phoenix: Jessica Chastain Reveals Mystery Character Will Kill Some X-Men

We already know that Jessica Chastain will be manipulating Jean Grey to do some dangerous things in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. But will the mysterious character also spill some mutant blood herself?

Chastain was recently a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where she unveiled the new Dark Phoenix trailer. But before that, the Zero Dark Thirty actress dropped some potential spoilers while explaining her role in the film. At one point, Fallon asks if Jean's powers are for good or for evil. However, Chastain immediately moved in to talk about her own character getting into the action.

"I get to beat up a lot of X-Men in the movie," she admitted before adding, "Maybe kill some?"

At this point, it's pretty obvious that Chastain's character is up to no good but she tried to go back on her confession.

"I didn't say I definitely do," she said. "Maybe someone lives. Maybe someone dies."

The trailer itself may have revealed whose death Chastain is responsible for. At one point, we see Jean Grey attacking Mystique followed by a funeral scene. Did the alien convince Jean to kill Mystique? We'll find out for sure this June.

The synopsis for Dark Phoenix reads as follows:

"In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite -- not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy."

X-Men: Dark Phoenix premieres on June 7.
