Sophie Turner reveals what’s ahead for the long-delayed Dark Phoenix movie


The troubled Dark Phoenix movie is set for reshoots to release later next year. Sophie Turner knows what to expect from the movie but not what they’re re-shooting.

The X-Men movies might have some complicated, plot-hole driven storylines, but the production for its next movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, might be even more complicated than that. At least the lead, Sophie Turner, knows what to expect from the muddled up movie — sort of.

Turner recently revealed more about the movie in an interview with Digital Spy, as she prepares to do reshoots for the 2019 movie. Originally, the film was set to come out November of this year. As a standard big-movie procedure, reshoots were scheduled after the test screening. But, per Collider, the in-demand celebrities’ schedules meant the earliest they could begin reshoots was August or September of this year — not nearly enough time to make the original November release date.

Reshoots are scheduled to take place soon. Turner said she has a positive outlook on the film’s new release date. Although, she doesn’t know for sure which scenes will be refilmed.

“All I know is that I’ll be back in Montreal at some point soon, and that the Valentine’s Day release date is quite a positive thing, because Black Panther got released on Valentine’s Day,” Turner said in the Digital Spy interview.

As for the plot, Turner said we could look forward to something different from the other movies, saying:

"This movie is kind of a lot more emotion-based, much more grounded. There are, of course, those supernatural elements, but this one is really character-driven – a really emotional story about a girl battling with a deadly mix of mental health problems and being a superhero."

Could this movie be more emotional than Logan? Although it was gritty and gruesomely R-rated, you have to admit that it knew how to tug on your heartstrings. And after seeing something as emotional as that, it’s hard to think there’d be something to one-up it.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last yearboth Turner and director Simon Kinberg explained that the movie will deal with Jean Grey’s struggle to control her darker alter-ego, Dark Phoenix. The struggle within is sure to garner some emotional leverage in the movie, as well as contribute to the darker tone. But only the final product and its reshoots will dictate if the movie accomplishes its goal or not.

For now, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to be in theaters February 14, 2019. Could it be as emotional as Deadpoolwas? Because our poor hearts can stand crying during more X-Men movies anymore.
