I Loved The Dark Phoenix Story And There Are Some Great Scenes Between Sophie’s Phoenix And My Character, Says Jessica Chastain
In ‘X-Men Dark Phoenix’ releasing on 5th June, the X-Men face one of their gravest and most personal challenges to date. It’s the 1990s, and even as the team attempts to embrace a newfound heroic status and acceptance within society, their close bond is about to be shattered when Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) merges with a strange, extraterrestrial force, one that boosts her already strong abilities to previously unknown levels. Years of repression are torn asunder as Jean begins to find herself and master her new powers, even as those around her start to wonder if she’ll be a threat to the world, and a mysterious alien with an agenda (Jessica Chastain) exerts an influence. For the first time in the superhero world, the protagonist and antagonist are both powerful actresses!
This is the first full fledged superhero film for talented actress Jessica Chastain. Jessica is one of the most talented actors working in film today. Appearing in films such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Martian, The Help,Interstellar, and The Zookeeper’s Wife, she’s won plaudits and awards for her performances, bringing nuance and power to every role she works on. For X-Men Dark Phoenix, she’s playing the mysterious, dangerous extraterrestrial who has designs on Jean Grey’s power.
When asked about her reason to sign on for X Men she says, “It was a connection with Simon because we’d worked together on The Martian. I was interested in the story and I think this may be only the second superhero movie where the antagonist and protagonist are both females, which is so interesting. I thought it was fascinating, I loved the Dark Phoenix story and there are some great scenes between Sophie’s Phoenix and my character.”
