Nightcrawler Looks [badly] Photoshopped in New ‘Dark Phoenix’ Image

Before you get all up in our comments about “ITS A MOVIE, IT’S A PROMO IMAGE, IT’S NOT DONE YET” yadda yadda- we know.  That said though, doesn’t the lighting on Kodi Smit-McPhee in this new Dark Phoenix image look…no so great? Like he was added as an afterthought?

True, this isn’t the greatest image we’ve gotten from an X-Men franchise film, but, it’s kind of the only new thing we have.

Tye Sheridan is back as Scott Summers aka Cyclops, James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xaiver, Alexandra Shipp as Orro aka Storm, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler.

They’ll be joined by Sophie Turner as Jean Grey aka Phoenix, Jessica ChastainJennifer Lawerence as Raven aka Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Hank aka Beast, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, and Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff aka Quicksliver.

Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7th 2019.
