Watch: X-Men Dark Phoenix new promo looks back at 20 years of iconic superhero franchise

20th Century Fox released new international 'legacy' teaser promo videos to celebrate X-Men Day on 13 May.

The two of the three videos released wraps about 20 years of history of the movie franchise, tracing the original movie in 2000 and fast forwarding to the upcoming final instalment X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In the two-decade long journey, the franchise has released about 11 movies in total, including the two Deadpool movies.

The videos posted by the studio just a month ahead of the Dark Phoenix  Summer release also show Jean Grey’s (Sophie Turner) evil transformation into X-Men's greatest foe of all time in the latest adaptation of the Marvel Comics titled The Dark Phoenix Saga.

The third video, however, is more for the comic book fans as the creators Chris Claremont and Louise Simonson, who wrote and edited the comic book version of The Dark Phoenix Saga, open up on the storyline. Claremont says, “We wanted (Jean) to be the heart and soul of the team.”
