‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer Breakdown: Every Easter Egg and Secret
The X-Men are back, and perhaps for the final time under the auspices of the Fox studio, which is about to be folded into its new corporate masters’ operations over at Disney. So the choice of music in this trailer for Dark Phoenix — a cover of “The End” by The Doors — is incredibly appropriate. It’s just that this is the end for at least one X-Man (but which one?!?) it’s that it’s very likely the end for all the X-Men in this form.
That’s just one of the hidden Easter eggs and secrets we found in the new trailer for Dark Phoenix. The video above breaks down the trailer in minute detail, and includes our best guess for which mutant bites the bucket. (It’s a guess but we’re almost definitely right.)
