By Paul Romano - 5/22/2011
X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.



X-Men: First Class hits theaters June 3rd!

hoping to see the Banshee poster.

He has just a few promo shots and he seems the coolest x-men from the few screencaps Ive seen.
BatmanDTW - 5/22/2011, 9:33 AM
@tea i read that list and grif more than earned his #1 spot. and i'm pretty sure poseidon got all his troll comments on that article about the bane picture. haha
Ghostt - 5/22/2011, 11:00 AM
cool movie..lame posters
Ryguy88 - 5/22/2011, 11:49 AM
Weneed, you want to see this movie because of a helmet?

earsmundo, there's an obvious reason why you have the whiner troll icon under your name.
Ryguy88 - 5/22/2011, 5:34 PM
You can really tell those hands have held a helmet or two in their day.
NeoBaggins - 5/22/2011, 7:35 PM
I thought they planned on this being a trilogy. I guess not if Magneto and Charles fall out in this one movie.
PaulRom - 5/23/2011, 5:17 AM
@NeoBaggins yeah, plans for a trilogy are still on. Especially with the extremely positive early word we've seen so far.
Coldblood6 - 5/23/2011, 6:17 AM
OK I'll admit it. I was bashing this film and was going to boycott it in the hopes that if it fails Marvelwould get back the rights.

But I started to change my mind when I realised that Marvel Studios can barely put out two movies a year right now so getting back the franchise would probably mean no x-men movies for a while. So the only hope we have is for FOX to get their head out of their asses and make good movies.

Then came the trailers and they really looked good and gave me hope, although trailers cannot be relied upon.

But now with all these great reviews from people whose opinions and tastes are in line with ours I have completely turned around!!!

Thus I saw to all you bitches:

KNEEL BEFORE THE GREATNESS THAT IS MAGNETO AND THE GLORY OF THE X-MEN!!!!!
YOU ARE INSECTS (less than insects wrt the haters) BEFORE THE GOD THAT MAGNETO!!!!!
X-MEN RULE!!!!!
MARVEL FOR THE WIN AND FOR LIFE!!!!!

To finish I give you a quote from Magneto himself that is very appropriate for the current times; this comes from SECRET WARS #1:

Magneto (whilst effortlessly defeating multiple heroes):
"You dare threaten me! I stand above you all save perhaps THOR. He alone among you may be my equal!"


Peace. I'm out.

@weneedrevelation

Glad to see my manips are useful.



magneto,photoshop
NeoBaggins - 5/23/2011, 9:01 PM
PaulRom Oh, ok. The trilogy is still the plan. I would have thought that Charles and Erik's differences would have gradually escalated over the three films. But I guess I'll have to see it. But right now it feels like he goes full Magneto by the end of the film and takes Mystique with him. I'm hoping for a more developed friendship between the two. Don't want to see another Anakin/ObiWan rushed friendship fall out.

There's lots of things to explore with those two characters because in a lot of ways, they're BOTH right.
