X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

February 14, 2019
PG-13
Action, Sci-Fi

A continuation of the X-Men: First Class timeline that explores Jean Grey's (Sophie Turner) transformation into Dark Phoenix.

The transformation of Jean Grey into a Dark Phoenix will be explored in the upcoming movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The story is set 10 years after the events that occurred in X-Men: Apocalypse where Jean Grey was led into unleashing the full power of her Phoenix abilities in order to help her team defeat the ancient and powerful mutant, En Sabah Nur, played by Oscar Isaac.

The upcoming movie is not the first to explore the transformation of Jean into her dark alter ego. This had already been explored in the third X-Men movie The Last Stand, wherein the character of Jean Grey was played by actress Famke Janssen. 

Unlike the previous adaptation of the transformation, the upcoming movie will be a close adaptation of Chris Claremont’s “Dark Phoenix Saga.” The movie is directed by Simon Kinberg, who is also the writer and co-producer of the film.

Turner will reprise her role once again together with James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. 

Jessica Chastain will join the cast to play the empress of the villainous Shi’ar, who is out to destroy Phoenix while actress Summer Fontana has been cast as the young Jean Grey.

Silver and Black (2019)

February 8, 2019
PG-13

A spinoff of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the second instalment in Sony's Marvel Universe (an adjunct of the Marvel Cinematic Universe) after Venom, Silver and Black brings together Marvel characters Silver Sable and Black Cat in a heist adventure.

The rumored plot sees notorious thief Felicia Hardy a.k.a. Black Cat in an international action film that sees her hiding out near the border area between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil after stealing important, secretive information. Now, several parties are after the Black Cat including Silver Sable, who was hired by the government, and who seeks information from Dmitri Smerdyakov a.k.a. Chameleon on Black Cat's location.

Silver's ultimate goal however is to get to main villain Mendel Stromm a.k.a. Gaunt - also searching for Black Cat - who experimented on Silver's Symkarian people so we can start to see how and why the title characters will team up. Stromm, who may or may not have ties to Norman Osborn (another rumor), has since moved from genetic engineering to robotics and has outfitted two henchmen with exosuit enhancements: Anton Rodriquez a.k.a. Tarantula who gets his spiked feed, and returning from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Mac Gargan a.k.a. Scorpion (Michael Mando) who will get his iconic weaponized tail. Lonnie Lincoln a.k.a. Tombstone also has a small role as a henchman.
