NEW DELHI: The popular comic series X-Men, has captivated audiences since a long time, whether it be the cartoon series, the original trilogy -- X 3, or subsequent adaptions like Days of Future Past and Logan -- fans have long been drawn to the fantastic plot, subtle nuances and analogies, the X-Men universe has to our own world. 

The mutants are back in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, with another exquisite enticing adventure. The stellar star cast includes Game of Thrones fame, Sophie Turner taking on the role of the complex, enigmatic and destructive – Phoenix. Turner plays the iconic character, Dr. Jean Grey, who works intimately with Professor X, but struggles to control her natural mutant abilities and the super powers of her alter ego, Phoenix, who is wild, fierce and hard to tame, resulting in pure anarchy and mayhem for everyone in her orbit. 

On playing the role Sophie Turner commented, “The story of Dark Phoenix, takes off after Apocalypse when the X-Men are sent to space, Jean, therein gets hit by a solar wave which manifest this crazy, uncontrollable energy within her, The Dark Phoenix, and that begins her unraveling, and the unraveling of the X-Men as a family.  I think that’s what draws me in, playing these really strong female characters, even if they are set in supernatural and fantastical settings, there is a real human connection behind it.”

Watch the X-Men: Dark Phoenix saga unfold, for the first time on Indian Television, on Star Movies, 28th June, 12 PM and 9 PM.
