With Dark Phoenix, Foxs years-long X-Men franchise is coming to an end and, judging from the films final trailer, the conclusion to Jean Greys story is going to be as devastating as it is long overdue.

While the latest trailer features a number of scenes that weve seen before, there are a number of new glimpses of characters like Quicksilver and Magneto that further explain the situation leading to the X-Men making first contact with the force that gives birth to the Phoenix.

Even though theyre working in coordination with NASA, traveling into space to save astronauts is something the X-Men are (judging from their lack of proper space suits) woefully unprepared for and when a freak accident leaves Jean in the vacuum and vulnerable to the cosmic energies hurtling towards Earth, the other mutants are helpless to do anything but look on in horror.

The trailer also establishes that Jeans Phoenix monicker is something that the other students at Xaviers school come up with for her after she seemingly dies and comes back to life, suggesting that Dark Phoenixs plot might be a little more grounded and less like the comics than Fox has let on in the past. Whoever Jessica Chastain is playing (we still dont know) doesnt apparently have a name for what Jeans becoming, and from the looks of things, there might be a sequence involving Jean killing Scott Summers (again).

Listen. No ones ever been the biggest fan of live-action Scott Summers (hes never had much to do), but it feels as if Dark Phoenix is getting dangerously close to borrowing ideas from X-Men: The Last Stand, which...would be less than ideal. But who knows? Dark Phoenix might surprise us all before engulfing us in flames when it hits theaters on June 7.
