I know a lot of you were disappointed with the 2009 movie X-Men Origins, but another X-Men is scheduled to be shown this year entitled X-Men: First Class which focus more on the origin of the mutant team.
X-Men: First Class is set during the 1960’s where it will also focus on the relationship between Charles Xavier and Magneto along with the origin of their groups: the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.
There is still no trailers being released for the movie as of this moment, but there was an official image of the team’s costume which resembles the original 1960’s costume.
And here are the characters, from left to right:
- Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender)
- Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne)
- Emma Frost (January Jones)
- Azazel (Jason Flemyng)
- Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult)
- Alex Summers/Havok (Lucas Till)
- Angel Salvadore (Zoe Kravitz)
- Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence)
- Charles Xavier/Professor X (James McAvoy)
You would notice that only Beast is the only member in the movie that was the original member in the very first X-Men team (the 1960’s comics if you were actually reading the X-Men comics).
I still have a mixed reaction for this movie, but let’s hope that this would be better than the last movie X-Men movies.
X-Men: First Class will be directed by Matthew Vaughn and produced by Bryan Singer, the movie will be in theaters June 3, 2011
