X-Men: Dark Phoenix actress Alexandra Shipp, who will essay the role of the younger version of Storm revealed that this fourth movie in the part-prequel/part-reboot X-Men series will be following the comics, and Marvel Comics fans can expect much more from this movie as compared to its prequel.
Previously, the X-Men movies failed to create its mark at the box office or in the minds of its fans, making everyone wonder whether the new X-Men: Dark Phoenix plans to walk on the same path.
Speaking to Syfy Wire, Alexandra Shipp teased about the plot of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and informed her fans that they will be happy with the outcome of the movie. “It’s definitely a darker world. A lot more is going on at this point. I can’t say too much but what I can say is that, as a fan of the X-Men franchise, I know a lot of people are going to be happy with how accurate this one is.”
Shipp made it a point to say that the film “stays true” to the X-Men mythos. The actress thinks that the reason behind the plot being set right is because long-time X-Men producer, Simon Kinberg will be directing the film. “Now that Kinberg has a little more control, he is able to really allow this X-Men world to flourish,” claimed Shipp.
Alexandra Shipp describes her role as Storm in X-Men: Dark Phoenix as a dream role. “As a kid, I liked dressing up as her. I liked pretending I had powers. I like pretending I have powers now!”
Further, waving her hand, Shipp joked, she joked: “I would really love to control the elements. Are you hot right now? Now you’re not, because I just gave you a cool breeze.”
X-Men: Dark Phoenix, expected to hit the theaters on November 2nd, 2018, stars James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Monroe/Storm, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven/Mystique, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summer/Cyclops, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver and Jessica Chastain in an undecided role.
