Disney-Fox merger what? Kevin Feige who?

Despite the upcoming merger, which is supposed to be finalized by next Summer, Twentieth Century Fox continues its Marvel’s X-men films as business as usual.

After announcing the the long-delayed Gabmit will be a romantic comedy and giving the third Deadpool film an X-mas release, the studio has released its long-awaited trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix – the next (and potentially last) chapter in Fox’s long-running saga.!

It appears that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) has made a grave mistake while handling a young Jean Grey
(Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner) as he seemingly opted to once again suppress her dormant Phoenix abilities instead of teaching her how to control the über-powerful force.

While the trailer may be light on actual Dark Phoenix action save for a quick shot near the end, there’s still plenty of intense footage of all of your favorite (except Jennifer Lawrence’s tired portrayal of Mystique) returning X-Men as they band together to face arguably their most dangerous – and most personal – threat yet.

There is also a nifty poster to boot!
