TheGeekFiles have some quotes from Singer on First Class from a press screening. A lot of it is stuff we have heard before from Singer, but he does explain why they chose to make this a Silver Age set film, and also debunks the recent Wolverine cameo rumor..



"We've set First Class in a time when the X-Men were conceived in the early 60s, up against political events that were happening - the early civil rights movement - and we have these kinds of events at a time when the world didn't know mutants existed."

And Hugh Jackman/Wolverine?

"He's not in the movie, he's in the Wolverine movies."

Further response to the rumor which had Jackman hop in a taxi the First Class set on Jekyl Island comes from Fox..

A Fox spokesman has since told us: "X-Men hasn't started shooting in Georgia yet and if Hugh was in Georgia, it wasn't for this movie.

Why the FUP do YOU PEOPLE keep bashing this film? At least reserve some judgement till youve seen a bloody trailer, jesus christ.

Im actuallly lookoing forward to it (till i see the trailer at least). Its got a great director, great writer, good cast.

(IM not SURE if you NOTICED but I used CAPITALS to puy extra EMPHASIS on certain WORDS!!!!! mwuahahahahaha[Im gonna stop now])

Leave the film alone.... till you see the trailer at least

I'll believe that we're getting an X-Men movie without Wolverine front and center when I actually see it. I hope we do.
