This time, it looks like Mystique and maybe Magneto are both done for based on this trailer, where Sophie Turner's Jean Grey goes very bad.

The movie tells the story of Jean Grey and her evolution into the Dark Phoenix. That's some pretty damned powerful mutation at work there.

The British actress plays Jean Grey, a mutant with unharnessed telepathic powers and one of Professor Charles Xavier's favourite students in the forthcoming film, the twelfth addition to the X-Men franchise and sequel to 2016 blockbuster X-Men: Apocalypse. The final trailer has now been released. It remains to be see what Disney's MCU wants to do with their newly acquired X-Men, but for fans of the Fox films, this will be your last hurrah. During a rescue mission in outer space, Jean is almost killed when she's hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once the team returns back home, a smitten Cyclops jokes that all the kids have taken to calling her "Phoenix".

Many are saying Walton was let go because of a bad season the team had, despite having LeBron James on their roster. As Williams is now under contract with Philadelphia, an interview would have to go through the team's front office.

We always knew Jean was an incredibly gifted telepath mutant, but her powers increase exponentially after a daring mission to rescue a number of NASA astronauts. 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.

Whether intentional or not, Dark Phoenix could use the wave of attention from Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, seeing as the premiere episode of the show's eighth season broke records with 17.4 million viewers watching. While Apocalypse may have faltered, we can only hope that Dark Pheonix can right some of the wrongs, and cap off this new generation of X-Men films in a big way.
