X-Men: First Class Jekyll Island Set Pics!

<I>X-Men: First Class</I> Jekyll Island Set Pics!

Spoiler photos have turned up online featuring an aerial glimpse of X-Men: First Class set thats being built on Jekyll Island, Georgia. It looks like pieces of the X-Men jet to me...

Filming on the Island is expected to begin later this month and could even be used for fictional Scottish Muir Island.

LEEE777 - I know what I want to say, but um, comments below please and doesn't it have that nineties animated jet feel to it?

Great find LEEE!:)), I didn't think they were gonna have this type of tech in a 60s era movie....well I guess it isn't that high-tech lol
LEEE777 - 12/8/2010, 11:50 PM
FRESH @ Its something LOL! ; P

Yours was a better find dude, real Marvel heh heh! ; D

Looking forward to this, liking the ideas I'm seeing here!

the plane is a sr 71 blackbird as it always was in the comics and was first used by the airforce in 1963 so it is very possible and plausable that they would have it in the 60 xmen

more like this

which the X-men have used

jsolutions - 12/9/2010, 2:05 AM
looks kind of like, they might be trying to go with the old Island of Krakoa storyline
jsolutions - 12/9/2010, 2:29 AM
that might explain why they have such a huge character cast. some people might be retiring after this storyline, as reflected in the original comics plot
xinstituto - 12/9/2010, 2:30 AM
I hope its krakoa too.. muir island is in scotland isnt it? has scotland cost got coconut trees?
RorMachine - 12/9/2010, 2:56 AM
Nice find Lee. its definitely the wreckage of A jet, not sure it'l be the blackbird. I also doubt Krakoa will feature in this.

jsolutions - 12/9/2010, 3:39 AM
good point..possibly Savage Land
cant recall any other palm tree related locales in the X-men history
jsolutions - 12/9/2010, 3:40 AM
you doubt Krakoa? any reason?
RorMachine - 12/9/2010, 4:53 AM
jsolutions, I just don't think they will use a living island. Its not really a cinematic villain, and brings things to close to Godzilla/Cloverfield territory. I could be wrong of course, but we already know that the film will feature Shaw, Azazel and possibly even the Shadow King so I doubt they will have Krakoa in there on top of that.

Chapter Twenty
"The World Still Spins"

End of the first Year

Original SuperHero fiction here on CBM

Hawksblueyes - 12/9/2010, 5:50 AM
Great find LEEE. Maybe the island is The Savage Land. Everyone knows you can't fly to the Savage Land without crashing your jet.
IcemanX - 12/9/2010, 5:58 AM

I think after the crash with the x-jet is Xavier paralyzed. Perhaps that could be the end of the movie.
ThaMessenger07 - 12/9/2010, 6:02 AM
I am starting to get a good feeling about this film......

I know weird right? The whole Star Trek approach and choice of characters has me believing that they are going to ret-con the story.......I believe we should all be ready.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 12/9/2010, 6:15 AM
Savage Land would be cool, Krakoa unlikely. Maybe Genosha or Madripoor? And it's definitely not Muir Island. Matthew Vaughn IS British - I'm pretty sure he knows there are no palm trees in Scotland.

As cool as the SR-71 Blackbird was, there are numerous reasons why it would never work for the X-Men, particularly that it only seats a crew of two people wearing pressurized spacesuits and oxygen masks.
Darkseidis - 12/9/2010, 6:16 AM
I still don't know how I feel about the movie. Don't get me wrong, by all means I hope sense they're attempting this prequel/reboot hybrid, that it'll be good. However, I am still a little down about it not being the original five as the main characters. Oh well...
XmutantX - 12/9/2010, 6:32 AM
i wonder what that is in the 2nd pic..looks kinda like a dam wall or sum sorta fortified wall..any guesses?
marvel72 - 12/9/2010, 6:41 AM
an x-jet in pieces just like the film.

epic fail.

@ leee777

scotish islands,i don't think they have palm trees on scotish islands. :D
DiLusso - 12/9/2010, 7:29 AM
more i here the more confused i get. don't get me wrong, i HOPE its a good movie. maybe the problem is us. as fanboys/girls we expect direct from the comic adaptions. non fanboys/girls dont have those expectations. if the average joe is told this is the origin of the x men , they will believe it. we are a minority, and THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!
JoshWilding - 12/9/2010, 7:39 AM
Yeah, that most definitely has a Blackbird look to it. Should be a great mov-oh, wait. It's being made by Fox you say? It'll be shit then. I'll wait for the Quinjet in The Avengers! Good stuff LEE! ;)
LEEE777 - 12/9/2010, 7:43 AM
DEADPOOL @ HAHA... I didn't think we'd have a First Class movie with NO First Class LOL!

Haha, anythings possible with this movie... okay they have BEAST! : P

Thanks @ GUYS!!! ; )

Yeah I'm thinking FOX's plan is to bring in CABLE

mess with all the history/timeline and at the end of this we get CYCLOPS, MARVEL GIRL, ANGEL, ICEMAN and oh BEAST!!!!

Right at the very end! ; p

Thats the BLACKBIRD crashed from the future lol!

Maybe Fox reads our H8 lol... hey I know it wont happen lol hah hah!

LEEE777 - 12/9/2010, 7:50 AM
ROR @ Cheers lol, an I hope it is the BLACKBIRD or it'll be more stuff making no sense lol.

JOSH @ Har Har!!! : D

Damn, the QUINJET from AVENGERS, Joy-gaZam!!! : P

DamianG @ Cool site!

@ lc

hi ya.
robdel - 12/9/2010, 10:05 AM
I think they're using the CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS as a backdrop to the story. That Island could be Cuba. The Russians parked Nuclear missiles there back in '60 or so. Kennedy had to decide weather to go to war. I think Russia was listed as a filming location and Brian Singer mentioned a more International James Bond feel. Also Magnetos first comic appearance as a villain involved launching missiles at the US. They could replace him with Sebastian Shaw. I'm an older fan and think this is where they're going with the story.
lc - 12/9/2010, 10:08 AM
@deadpool hiya :)
OptimusPrimeTime - 12/9/2010, 10:20 AM
I figured you'd be the last person on here to post some news about FIST ASS @LEEE, but great find bud!!

I'm still predicting this movie to be 5-6/10. . . . AT BEST
LEEE777 - 12/9/2010, 12:42 PM
Haha! ; )

PRIME @ Thanx buddy and I'm predicting less...
