When Phoenix opens, Erik (Michael Fassbender) is living and leading a group of mutants on Genosha. “He’s set up this place for mutants that don’t a home to go to and they can seek refuge there,” says Fassbender of the location. “They have to work as a community but it’s a safe place for them and they’ll be accepted.” Adds Kinberg, “It’s the mutant homeland.”

But the peace and calm of the commune is threatened with the arrival of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), who comes to Erik for help. Teases Fassbender, shown above with Kinberg, “There’s a suspicion there on his part when she arrives.”

Dark Phoenix arrives Nov. 2, 2018.
