X-Men is back! While the franchise suffered a rather painful loss with Logan/Wolverine permanently leaving the superhero roster, we will be treated with not just one, but three titles that will hopefully satisfy our craving for superhuman action.

'Dark Phoenix' will explore more of Jean Grey's mysterious power

First off, in November of next year we will have "dark phoenix." As X-Men fans may have guessed, this movie will center on Jean Grey and that feared, uncontrollable power she has inside of her, called the Phoenix.

The story will be based from "Uncanny X-Men," a comic book series that ran from around 1976 to 1977. The plot line kicks off as Jean Grey returns from a mission she tried to accomplish out in space. It turns out that while she was out there, she was exposed to a deadly radiation which is now believed to be the major cause of the Phoenix phenomenon.

Whether the original story progression will be portrayed exactly the same in the film (as it was told in the comics) remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, we could wait on word from Simon Kinberg, who is reported to make his directorial debut in this movie. Kinberg has been previously producing X-Men films ("X-Men: Apocalypse," "X-Men: Days of Future Past"), but this time he decided to personally helm "Dark Phoenix."

Jean Grey will be played by "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner. And if "X-Men: Apocalypse" is any indication, we could say that the shift of roles from the lovely Sansa Stark of Winterfell to one of the most powerful mutants in the superhero franchise is a great showcase for Turner.

Online magazine Variety reported that jessica chastain will be cast as the main villain for the upcoming blockbuster. The "Martian" star would take on the role of Lilandra, the leader of an alien empire called the Shi'ar.

'Deadpool 2' and 'The New Mutants' are coming, too!

"Dark Phoenix" will not be the X-Men movie franchise's only major offering for next year. The sequel for Ryan Reynolds "Deadpool" is getting its much-awaited sequel in "Deadpool 2," as well.

The first R-18 title drew positive reviews despite being quite the "underdog" in the X-Men roster, and it's no surprise that this wacky, over-violent superhero is getting more room for his clever banter and fourth-wall-breaking.

"Deadpool 2" will be directed by David Leitch and produced by Simon Kinsberg and Ryan Reynolds. It is expected to be released on June 1, 2018.

In addition to these two blockbusters, we also have "X-Men: The New Mutants" to expect.

Compared to the first two, this one does not rely from previous storylines and is rather a spinoff. It will feature the very first graduates from Charles Xavier's famed School for Gifted Youngsters in action.
