Dark Phoenix is in theaters on June 7th, 2019.

The all star studded cast returns in the final installment of the 12 movies spanning almost 20 years.

Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is involved in an outer space accident while trying to rescue astronauts. She becomes infected with a burst of power that turns into a power hungry uncontrollable mutant. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) is unable to control her and is confronted with his demons when she learns the truth about him.

It was better than Apocalypse and had some really cool fighting scenes. Jessica Chastain is a new addition to the cast and is of course, an amazing actress. It felt really good to see everyone again, I always get pumped to see them suited up - I remember when the first movie came out and how excited I was. I’ve been an X-Men fan since I was a little kid and seeing them on the big screen always feels nostalgic. I like that they change up the outfits too. I enjoyed the scenes with Charles and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), they have great chemistry as well the first duo to play them, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. These movies are expertly casted - it was nice to see Jennifer Lawrence who plays Mystique, her character development through these movies has been a focal point, and it paid off.

I think it felt slow at times, they throw in some scary looking aliens which was not appreciated. I think some people will enjoy it or not - It’s hard to say. I think we can all agree it truly is the end of an era. I’m hoping marvel takes a little break before unloading a new series on us...
