This may or may not be one of the last X-Men films before the rights to the franchise head over to the lightyears-better Marvel Cinematic Universe after the Disney-Fox merger. So, the mutants are gearing up for one final shebang in the form of Dark Phoenix.

X-Men already tried going this route in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, which — let’s face it — was pretty bad despite being fourth-highest-grossing film of the franchise. In a nutshell: during a space mission, Jean Grey becomes exposed to the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix Force, which makes her the most powerful and destructive person in the entire universe.

After several pushbacks, the film is slated to arrive February 14th, 2019. The first trailer can be seen below.
