X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX's Sophie Turner Teases A Departure From APOCALYPSE; Unsure Of What Will Be Reshot

After a less than positive reaction to X-Men: Apocalypse, actress Sophie Turner promises X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be quite different from her big debut as Jean Grey in the popular & decades old franchise.

Even though it's been delayed until early 2019, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding X-Men: Dark Phoenix thanks to rumors and reports about its planned reshoots, the looming merger between Fox and Disney, and the fact that it is adapting one of the most iconic X-Men stories ever.

Despite some questions surrounding the film, Sophie Turner promised that it will tell a grounded and emotional story.

“This movie is kind of a lot more emotion-based, much more grounded," Turner told the folks over at Digital Spy. "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.”

These comments obviously don’t reveal any specific plot details, but the star’s mention of mental health problems might lend more credence to rumors claiming there won’t be a separate Phoenix Force entity and that Jean Grey’s dark turn will be similar to what we saw in The Last Stand.

Turner did, however, claim that Dark Phoenix wouldn’t be like X-Men: Apocalypse saying, “It's a movie about struggle and abandonment and not knowing yourself. Yeah, an internal struggling. It's so, so interesting. It's such a departure from the last movie."

Yet, the star wasn’t able to reveal much about the scheduled reshoots, for Turner herself is also a bit in the dark when it comes to this subject.


“I think it's just a few bits and bobs, reshoot-wise. To be honest, I don't even know what we're reshooting at the moment. So I couldn't really tell you much about that one.”

If you're worried this means the production is in trouble, it's important to keep in mind that the studio likely wants to keep things under wraps until Turner returns to Montreal for filming. Either way, we may already have an idea of what will be shot, as a past report indicated that director Simon Kinberg will rework the final act and bring changes that aren't expected to be too extensive.
