Sophie Turner Confirms Her Return as Jean Grey in the Upcoming X-Men Film
My all time favorite mutant is Jean Grey, that is one bad arse woman. She is definitely someone I would want with me if I were alone in a dark alley.
Sophie Turner, who I feel is rocking this position in the new X-Men movies, plays the role of young Jean Grey. She recently confirmed while on the British red carpet that she will be coming back to be the fiery female phoenix again in the upcoming X-Men movie that has yet to be named. Sophie, while looking amazing on the red carpet stated:
“We’re about to start shooting the next X-Men, we’ve just finished shooting season 7 of Game of Thrones and I’ve got a couple of movies to do before X-Men starts. And then we go on to Season 8.”
I am sure now the Game of Thrones fans out there will be excited to hear that. I never got into that franchise, for some reason that TV show didn’t snag me like it did the rest of my family. But X-Men however, that’s where my heart lies for sure. Though there isn’t a whole lot to speculate on where they will be going with this new X-Men line-up, but there is some gossip that Simon Kinsberg is planning on revising the Dark Phoenix Saga and bringing this to the big screen. Not everyone is excited about this I guess, but to me, it’s the Phoenix, I want to see her no matter what form she is in.
The young British, Game of Thrones actress took on the role in the X-Men Apocalypse movie. This is where we meet miss Grey while she is in school and still figuring out whom she is and her part as a mutant (like we all do in high school.) This role was handed down from actress Framke Janssen who graced our screens as the older more experienced Jean Grey and whom I loved to see in action. ^_^
