With Dark Phoenix set to blaze through theatres this weekend, it’s the perfect time to discuss all things X-Men. ET Canada’s Carlos Bustamante is joined by That Shelf’s Managing Editor Jason Gorber to break down the fierce women of the X-Men franchise. They discuss Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, Mystique’s evolution, and the franchise’s history of churning out underdeveloped female characters.
Dark Phoenix synopsis:
Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.
Dark Phoenix arrives in theatres Friday, June 07.
