X-Men: Dark Phoenix Reshoots Tease Jean Grey’s Fight Scene [Photos]

Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix is currently going through reshoots in Montreal, Canada. Some new set photos have surfaced online, courtesy Universo X-Men, which shows Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey rehearsing a fight scene with Jessica Chastain’s still-unidentified villain who seems to have an upper hand on her opponent.

In the pictures, both the actresses are donning motion-capture suits which suggest that some CGI enhancements will be added later to the scene. On taking a closer look at the pictures, one can find Tye Sheridan’s stunt double standing in the background, suggesting Cyclops is a part of the scene as well.

You can check out the pictures below.

While information regarding Chastain’s character in the film is not yet known, she is rumored to be playing a shapeshifting Skrull, who has telepathic and telekinetic powers. She disguises herself in order to get close to Jean, before transitioning into her true form.

Last week, the Academy Award-nominated actress even posted a video on social media teasing her return to the sets of Fox’s upcoming film.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters this November. But, its release date was pushed back to February 14, 2019, to make room for reshoots, which has become a new normal for big budget Hollywood films. The film’s reshoots are expected to span for around two-and-a-half weeks.

Talking more about the film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the big screen interpretation of the Dark Phoenix Saga comic book storyline. The film also stars Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, James McAvoy as Professor Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Alexandra Ship as Storm, Evan Peters as Quicksilver and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix remains on track to get released in theatres on February 14, 2019. The X-Men spinoff The New Mutants is set to debut on August 2, 2019. The film is also undergoing some massive reshoots right now.
