Although not much is known about "X-Men: #dark phoenix," fans have their first look at Sophie Turner in all her fiery magnificence on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's December issue.

We saw hints of Jean’s immense power in "X-Men: Apocalypse." On the December cover of Entertainment Weekly, we are shown her skin cracking as the fiery being takes hold.

How does Sophie feel?

It is easy to assume that playing a superhero is a vain and self- fulfilling task, #Sophie Turner said she had to ignore her ego to play the role of #Jean Grey-Phoenix in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix." She said as cool as it may look in the on screen, it takes a lot of work (sometimes embarrassing) to make it look just as cool while shooting.

The "Dark Phoenix" Saga is one of the most iconic "X-Men" stories. Sophie says that these particular books with Jean Grey’s decline into a fiery madness were her “favorite comics” as a kid.This iconic role was so important that Turner had to cut back on a previously strong partying regimen.

With Sophie already being a "Game Of Thrones [VIDEO]" actress, she is very used to the spotlight and the work that comes with it. When she got the call for this role, however, she discussed with Entertainment Weekly’s big "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" cover story, how much pressure she felt. She did get the call to play a major comic book superhero in a long-running movie series after all.

Other stars

Other stars and familiar mutants, young and grown up, to keep in eye out for in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" are the following: Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit McPhee), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Cyclops (Tye Sheridan).

Here’s what to expect

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" is set in 1992, 10 years after the events in "X-Men: Apocalypse." The team (mentioned above) finally finds themselves being viewed as heroes, but that has an unexpected negative effect on Xavier.

The negative effects provoke him to send the team on a space rescue mission, during which a solar flare hits the X-Jet awakening the power-hungry Phoenix within Jean.

"Dark Phoenix" will appear in theaters on November 2nd, 2018. With it being Simon Kinberg’s second time with this iconic storyline (his first was in 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand"), we are in for a real treat. He wrote the screenplay for the first "X- Men" film he did, but for this film, we will see him in his director’s debut.
