Honestly, bit of a weird flex for Fox X3 in any way in the run up to this movie .
Fox has just dropped the new poster for Dark Phoenix ahead of a trailer set to appear tomorrow night. X-Men franchise-oh look, that's the thing with the X, again! -Perhaps the most interesting part of it is that Jean Gray is sporting two looks at once as she is divided between her normal self and the Phoenix Force. One is the snazzy new X-Uniforms inspired by Frank Quietly's New X-Men design in the comics. The other, however, is a cute little throwback to X-Men movie history:
Because, yup. It's basically a more dressed-down version of Famke Janssen's Phoenix Attire in X3 . It's a nice throwback to Last Stand even if it.
It's a nice throwback to even if it does not feel like a weird reminder that this X-Men prequel saga and the previous films are meant to be part of their own bizarre, nigh-on-incomprehensive timeline. But it's kind of a shame that the comics costumes for the X-Men are not being taken on a Phoenix's costume, too. These movies are finally getting around to putting non-magneto mutants into comics uniforms and they're not using one of Jean's most iconic looks!
That, and when people are desperately hoping for a take on the Dark Phoenix Saga that is not as universally derided as X3 what, it's a bold move for Dark Phoenix to remind us of it in such a big way. June 7, to see if a comics inspiration and a nice red coat are all that Dark Phoenix Last Stand .
