Dark Phoenix movie billboards...

This June the much-delayed final installment in the Fox Studios X-Men film franchise faces annihilation courtesy of Dark Phoenix.

Now that Disney has bought back the rights to the X-Men (and Fantastic Four) this will be the last movie featuring the rebooted First Class of mutants (although New Mutants is still languishing in release date hell) and this picture refocuses its attention on 'Jean Grey' and her troublesome cosmic-level powers that were also central to 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.

That film treated the Phoenix as a mental state of the redheaded telepath and telekinetic played by Famke Janssen, so it'll be interesting if this Dark Phoenix movie starring Sophie Turner in the titular role will explore the more cosmic elements of classic comic book story by iconic X-Men writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne.

This movie sees the X-Men venturing into space for a rescue mission which sounds like a good start and results in Jean being transformed into one of the most powerful mutants on Earth.

Can her teammates from Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters stop her when she becomes corrupted by all that power, and what mysterious part does Jessica Chastain play in this film, is she friend or foe?

Will 'Professor X', 'Magneto', 'Mystique', 'Storm', 'Cyclops', 'Beast', 'Nightcrawler' and 'Quicksilver' be able to save their friend, or will things end badly for the merry mutants of the Marvel universe this time around.

Meanwhile Marvel Comics aficionados can also enjoy all these X-Men movie billboards filling the city skyline in recent years.

It's the end of an era, so let's hope this final Fox X-Men movie goes out with a bang and not a whimper.
