By this point, Dark Phoenix has come and gone, and could potentially be one of the biggest flops in a year of flops. And this isn’t something fans didn’t see coming. Enthusiasm for the franchise was at an all-time low, but perhaps even more important than that, the reported extensive remakes and retooling of the third act. Director Simon Kinberg later said it had to do with making the film resemble a certain film less than it originally film…but what film was it?

The easy bet seemed to be Captain Marvel, as both it and Dark Phoenix featured a lead who had sort of a power forcefield around her. Later on, he stated it wasn’t just that movie, but didn’t deny the visual similarities he was trying to avoid. if there was any doubt, though.

You can put those to rest, as concept artist Houston Sharp recently shared some of his work for the film on Instagram…and yeah…it definitely resembles Captain Marvel.

In addition to the final forms, Sharp also included a couple other shots of Jean Grey floating through space.

So what do you think of these images? Do you think they made the right move in moving away from the space finale, or was it a missed opportunity? Let us know your thoughts down below!
