[[WMG: Jean actually ''wasn't'' responsible for the accident that killed her mother.]]
All throughout the movie, seemingly apart from the opening, when someone tells someone to "Stop it." they respond with "It's not me." In the opening however, Jean seemingly ''is'' the one doing it. As evidenced by her hearing voices, and the radio seemingly turning on its own. But think about it, her parents obviously already know about her powers and so does she. Hence why when the radio starts turning her mother asks her to stop. But why would Jean say it wasn't her if it was? Yeah it's possible she wasn't doing it intentionally, but my theory is something ELSE was causing it, and Jean was blamed because she was the only logical explanation. As for what actually caused it, I have no idea. Apocalypse wasn't awake yet, and we never learn exactly how long ago the Phoenix Force destroyed the D'bari homeworld. Maybe it ''was'' the Phoenix Force, but it was calling out to her, or destroying another planet to give live to a different one? That's what it does in the comics and, as terrible as it sounds, as pointed out in ComicBook/AvengersVsXmen that's its ''job''.

the shuttle), but it's much shorter than both scenes from ''Days of Future Past'' and ''Apocalypse'' and it's not set to a song of the era, it has the lyricless Hans Zimmer soundtrack instead.



to:

* Jossed. The only cosmic elements in the film are the Phoenix Force and the D'Bari.



[[WMG: Hatred against mutants is going to get way, way worse in ''Dark Phoenix.'']]
In ''Apocalypse'', a single ambitious mutant wipes away a city of millions (people presumably included) pretty much just because. That's terrible enough, but it pales in comparison to do the damage done by Magneto, who wreaked death and devastation on a truly global scale. ''Everywhere'' was affected by his powers. Not only are chances decent that his death toll exceeds Apocalypse's, but the spread out nature of the damage he causes means that a massive portion of the global population is going to have had a loved one killed or injured because a ''single'' mutant had an emotional breakdown. Even those that didn't will see the traces of his destruction for years to come. And the punishment for that mutant? Nothing. After an event like that, feeling safe while mutants exist is going to be a very hard sell.
* The Friends of Humanity will form as a result.

* Jossed. Mutants are largely liked, at least until Jean goes rogue and the government starts to take action against them.




to:

* Jossed. It's not a Starjammers movie and he's not back.



In the 1990s the ''[[CoolStarship Starjammer]]'' lands in Westchester. Christopher Summers, aka Corsair, introduces himself as Cyclops' biological father and recruits Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Nightcrawler, and one character from the ''First Class'' lineup (Beast? Professor X? [[DeathIsCheap Havok?]]) to help him overthrow the tyrannical leader of the Shi'ar Empire (D'Ken? Deathbird? Vulcan? The source material gives the movie a lot of tyrannical Shi'ar leaders to choose from.) The X-Men head to space and fight alongside the Starjammers. Between (and during) battles, Jean Grey struggles with the fact that the Phoenix Force is attempting to overtake her personality, and she keeps this a secret from Cyclops, who she is very much in love with. Around the halfway mark the villain is defeated and non-tyrannical Shi'ar leader Lilandra becomes Empress. The X-Men are getting ready to head home when Jean goes full Phoenix and attempts to kill them. She flees to another star system to consume a star, killing the alien inhabitants of the planets that orbit that star. Lilandra is outraged and commands the X-Men to bring Jean to justice. The X-Men chase her to Earth's moon where after failing to free her from the Phoenix Force's control, they throw everything they have at her. Ultimately, Jean

Fox seems to be retooling their X-Men property to focus on two things: R-rated cash cows (Deadpool movies, X-Force movies, Gambit movies) and New Mutants movies. The early 80s Claremont-esque character lineup of the Original and First Class trilogies will be phased out in favour of these characters. Redoing the Dark Phoenix saga could the last hurrah for the kind of movie that used to define the X-Men Film series.
* Also, if Disney gains ownership of Fox they could reboot the X-Men into the MCU.
** Confirmed, I believe they said as much in the lead up.

[[WMG: Kitty Pryde was in the last scene set in the X-Mansion]]
As we see the school getting back to normal in the epilogue I was fairly sure I saw a girl phase through a door. If it was Kitty it could qualify as a sort of BookEnds or call back to the first 2 films, as she had blink and you'll miss it cameos in those films, just as she (possibly) did here.

Deadpool made more changes to the timestream than what was shown at the end of his second movie.

Added DiffLines:

** I was wrong also regarding Jean, Charles, and Chastain in a scene together; it was Magneto seemingly confronting Jean, with Chastain in the background. Still, looks like he was only talking to Jean.

Added DiffLines:

** This seems to be {{Jossed}} in the second full trailer: During the shot from the train scene Chastain (recognizable by her clothing) can be seen walking towards Magneto, while Eric is using appropriated machine guns to fire on her.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Jessica Chastain's character only appears to Jean Grey and no one else can see her.]]
* Based on some of the teasers, it seems Jessica Chastain's character appears out of no where to talk with Jean. Also based on one teaser she, Jean and Charles appear to be in the same scene but Charles only acknowledges Jean.
* This might mean that she is more of a mental representation of something, such as Jean's Dark Side psyche talking to her, a SpiritAdvisor form of the Phoenix Force itself, or a grown-up version of Jean using the Phoenix powers.
* Either way, she only appears to Jean and no one else can see her.

* It's doubtful that Deadpool!Colossus would have any reason to be heavily involved in this film, and it's incredibly unlikely that Daniel Cudmore's Colossus will be returning anytime soon. That being said, it would be nice to acknowledge Piotr's existence in this film in some way, even if it's something minor.
