New Details On Cyclops' Role In X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX; It Sounds Like Scott Summers Will Finally Become A Leader

Cyclops' role in X-Men: The Last Stand was a major disappointment but X-Men: Dark Phoenix's take on the Dark Phoenix Saga looks set to make up for that based on new comments from Simon Kinberg...

In the comic books, Scott Summers played a pivotal role in the Dark Phoenix Saga but that most definitely wasn't the case in X-Men: The Last Stand when Cyclops was unceremoniously killed off by Jean Grey off camera. Well, the signs are now pointing to director Simon Kinberg making up for past mistakes as he's said in a new interview that Scott will have a huge part in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
 

Kinberg says "that relationship, his being willing to kill or die for [Jean Grey], is a huge part of the emotional core of the movie. It also makes Scott start to have to become a leader." That's something fans have desperately wanted to see for a while now and the hero stepping up to lead the X-Men as he tries to save Jean will definitely help get sceptical fans on board with how this movie plays out.

Entertainment Weekly adds that Cyclops is "the one mutant who never wavers from Team Jean" in X-Men: Dark Phoenix and with so much being said about Professor X's arrogance and the fact he attempts to hide Jean's powers from her, it's easy to imagine Scott wresting control of the team from him, especially if that big twist is going to involve the death of Mystique! We'll have to wait and see.
