Earlier, in an interview, Sophie Turner had opened up on pressures that were a part her journey while shooting for this film, “I knew Simon (writer and director) was taking me out to lunch and he sits me down and tells me it’s Dark Phoenix and I’m like 'f*****k." I know it's one of the most loved stories of the X-Men universe and for Simon to trust me enough with this responsibility is a big honor. And I want to do the fans of the original story justice, and of course, there’s a lot of pressure especially having been done before. Simon would tell you that it was a B-plot of the movie and he felt it had to be the main plot of the movie.”
