Actor Tye Sheridan who is portraying the character of Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops in X-Men: Dark Phoenix claims that the upcoming movie is more sort of a drama than a superhero movie. TheWrap recently interviewed Sheridan at SXSW where the actor was promoting his new films Ready Player One and Friday’s Child.
“Jean goes crazy in the movie,” Sheridan said about X-Men: Dark Phoenix that focuses on Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, a.k.a. Phoenix. “Well, Cyclops doesn’t think she’s going crazy; Cyclops just thinks she’s gotta work some stuff out. It’s interesting, the drama in the movie. We treated this movie as much more of a drama versus a superhero film.”
Sheridan became a part of the X-Men movies cast in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, where he debuted as one of Marvel’s best-known mutants’ younger version Cyclops.
Set in 1992, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will take place around ten years after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. The film is an adaptation of the X-Men’s most iconic story, “The Dark Phoenix Saga.” The comic book’s storyline revolves around Jean Grey as she struggles to control and succumbs to the Phoenix Force within.
Recently a new leaked photo from Dark Phoenix’s set offered a first look at the team of mutants’ superhero costumes. The picture features Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Quicksilver, and Nightcrawler all in matching uniforms. The blue colored uniforms have a large yellow ‘X’ logo on the torso. Looking at the design of the uniform, it seems the suits are based on Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s New X-Men run. You can check out the picture below.
In an earlier interview, actress Sophie Turner also teased the movie stating that they have “revolutionizing” the superhero genre with Dark Phoenix.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is currently in the post-production stage. The movie stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, and Jessica Chastain.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will land in theaters on November 2, 2018.
