A new trailer for the forthcoming X-Men: The Dark Phoenix is a game-changer for the franchise and its characters.
Spoiler alert: In the clip, Jean Grey Sophie Turner kills Mystique Jennifer Lawrence, which sends the team into a psychological and physical tailspin.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Simon Kinberg said he was "obviously sad" about the fate of Lawrence's character but added, "The thought process behind that was to primarily show that this is a movie that is unlike other X-Men movies. It’s a movie where shocking things happen, where intense, dramatic things happen. People don’t just fall off buildings and dust themselves off and walk away. There’s a reality to this movie and a consequence to this movie."
Dark Phoenix is in theaters in June.
