‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ To Revolutionize Superhero Genre; New Photo Reveals Beaten Magneto

X-Men: Dark Phoenix, according to the female lead of the film, Sophie Turner, will revolutionize the superhero genre, thereby laying path to a new genre of superhero movie. Meanwhile, a new image of Michael Fassbender as Erik M. Lehnsherr (Magneto) shows him lying dead or unconscious.

X-Men: Apocalypse, released in 2016 featured Sophie Turner’s Jean grey cut loose. The events in the film have given hints to let fans know which route the X-Men franchise would take next.

In an interview with Empire, Turner promised a dark and powerful drama. “We are revolutionizing it. We wanted to create a whole new genre of superhero movie,” said Turner. She also promised a “dark, gritty drama” that would absolutely turn the franchise. From what was hinted in an earlier report, a dark adaptation is expected in this movie.

Fox studios have always preferred to experiment with the X-Men franchise. While Deadpool was a raunchy comedy, Logan had a bloody and brutal tale to tell. Both movies did not in any way explore the idea of a “superhero genre.”

It seems from Turner’s statements that they will be experimenting with tentpole X-Men films as well. Turner credits director Simon Kinberg for his vision. She said:

“Simon has been the brain behind X-Men for years, and it’s really exciting to have what feels like one of our own rise up and take hold of the franchise, and direct it in the way that he sees it. I have to say he’s one of the best directors I’ve ever worked with. He’s so passionate and collaborative.”

Meanwhile, Empire released a photo in which the Marvel antihero Erik M. Lehnsherr, also known as Magneto is shown in a pitiful condition lying unconscious or dead, probably after being beaten up.

Giving more details about his character Magneto in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Fassbender had earlier this month said:

“A confused Jean turns to Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), the rogue mutant who parted ways with the X-Men at the end of Apocalypse and now lives on an island named Genosha, a destination comic-book fans will recognize. He’s set up this place for mutants that don’t have a home to go to. They have to work as a community, but it’s a safe place for them and they’ll be accepted.”

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is scheduled to hit theaters on November 2, 2018.
