‘Dark Phoenix’ Director Confirms That Nod To ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Dark Phoenix Sophie Turner X-Men Jean Grey Captain America Civil War Captain MarvelDuring an interview with i09, Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg confirmed the ending of the new X-Men film was a tribute to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

Fox’s final installment of the current X-Men film series concluded with Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr reuniting at a cafe in Paris for a game of chess. From a visual standpoint, audiences couldn’t help but notice the scene bore a resemblance to the final sequence of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, in which Alfred sits down at a cafe Paris and spots the presumed dead Bruce Wayne with Selina Kyle. When asked if the conclusion to Dark Phoenix was a deliberate nod to Christopher Nolan’s ending in The Dark Knight Rises, director Simon Kinberg confirmed this theory to be correct, replying, “Yes! It is.”

What did you think of how Fox’s X-Men franchise came to an end? Did you immediately think of The Dark Knight Rises during the final scene? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
