The next X-Men won’t be called ‘Supernova’.
That’s according to producer Simon Kinberg who also revealed that the new film will start filming later this year.
“It’s not called Supernova,” Kinberg said. “One of the things we do when we make these X-Men movies, to be totally candid, is — any of these movies, it’s on Star Wars, too — is you come up with fake names to throw people off the scent and when you’re out making the movie, the signs that show you where the locations are say Nova, or whatever the fake title is, and people figure it out, and I don’t even know why we do it anymore.”
Reports suggest that the film will take its inspiration from the “Dark Phoenix” saga from the comics with 20th Century Fox looking to correct the issues in X-Men: The Last Stand back in 2006.
This time, Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey will become the Dark Phoenix since we saw her powers get unleashed at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse.
