Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover of their “First Look” issue, which features the first photos from X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The cover features a good look at what Sophie Turner will look like when she’s possessed by the Phoenix Force in the film. The film opens with Charles Xavier landing the cover of TIME magazine and the X-Men are seen as national heroes. This results in Xavier’s ego getting in the way. Here are highlights of quotes from the cast and crew.

Director Simon Kinberg on Charles Xavier’s ego: “Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions.”

James McAvoy on the emotional conflict of the story: “This is probably the most emotional X-Men we’ve done and the most pathos-driven. There’s a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering.”

Sophie Turner on the Phoenix: “It’s about the butterfly effect of this thing happening. What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?”
