When Dark Phoenix, the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse premieres on June 7, it will be the first movie in the X-Men franchise with a main character who's a woman.
And in a new interview with E! News, two of the film's stars, Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain, are getting real about why that shouldn't be unusual.
"Growing up, I didn't really feel like...I'd seen a superhero movie with a really strong female at the helm," Turner said. "Now, it's so great that young girls and young boys and your daughter can grow up and watch this movie and look at it and say, 'Oh wow, what a strong, well-rounded, accurate representation of a woman.'"
Chastain echoed her co-star's sentiments, saying, "Also, all women are strong and all women are incredible and powerful. It'll be nice, when we get to the point too when we make these films, that we don't have to say, 'It's great to see a strong female character, well, it's just normal.'"
