A Quiet Place 2

Speaking with Screen Rant, Tye Sheridan revealed the X-Men split into two opposing factions after Jean Grey becomes The Phoenix.
...[W]hat happens with Jean Grey in the movie, it kind of splits the X-Men up into two groups. There’s one group who feels like they can still save Jean and she’s not lost; that the same Jean Grey that they’ve always known is still there. And then some of them think that she’s way too dangerous. And so it kind of causes this conflict that starts to take form in the middle of the movie. And I just think it lends itself to allowing the movie to have much more tension between those characters. And I think that’s something that we’ve seen in X-Men movies, but I think this movie is probably much more grounded and real and raw because of that.
Bloody-Disgusting also has a new Dark Phoenix poster from Wonder Con, in which Jean feels the fury of the Phoenix force.
