Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is stung by a powerful beam of energy in a mishap and develops incredible powers.
However, the mutant starts behaving erratically, gets corrupt, and starts coming across as a real threat.
As Grey grows into the villainous Dark Phoenix, X-Men must decide if her life is worth more than all of humanity.
The superhero saga serves as the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), seventh instalment of the X-Men film series, and the twelfth instalment overall.

When Disney floated the idea of acquiring Fox less than two years ago, one of the first questions on everyone's minds was whether their respective Marvel superhero properties would somehow co-exist. Disney CEO Bob Iger put that debate to rest in late 2018 by handing the reigns of the X-Men, Deadpool, and other franchises to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who doesn't foresee any immediate plans for their integration into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And just like that, X-Men: Dark Phoenix — out now in India — which was originally envisioned as the start of a new trilogy, as writer-director Simon Kinberg had hinted at over three years ago, is now the end of Fox's X-Men run as a whole. (Set aside a repeatedly-delayed horror spin-off in The New Mutants due next year.)
