Sophie Turner Talks The Impact of 'Dark Phoenix' Being The First X-Men Movie Led By Women

Sophie Turner gets sandwiched in by Evan Peters and Michael Fassbender during the Dark Phoenix photo call on Monday (May 20) in Berlin, Germany.

In a new interview, the 23-year-old actress opened up about the film focusing on a female antagonist and protagonist.

“All the female characters in this movie are the strongest characters,” Sophie says. “We have a female protagonist, a female antagonist, all while the female protagonist is also somewhat of an antagonist.”

She continues, “It’s all about her relationships, Jean’s relationship with the females throughout this movie, which is really very interesting. None of the women in this movie are subservient to a man, which is incredible.”

“It’s crazy to think that this is kind of the first X-Men movie led by women. That’s really exciting to me and especially to Jessica [Chastain]. And it comes at exactly the right time as well.”

    so if she’s the female antagonist who is the female protagonist but then also who is the male antagonist and who is the male protagonist so she is saying she is the most powerful antagonist or protagonist or she is both protagonist and antagonist. I think I get it now.
