X-Men: First Class trailer

This is the first I've seen of the upcoming X-Men prequel and I have to say, it looks pretty awesome! It's shaping up to be an amazing super hero summer, with Thor, Captain America, X-Men First Class, and Green Lantern. It's good to be a geek! Let me know what you think about this one in the comments.

    I think it looks pretty cool. What are your thoughts on casting? (Kevin Bacon=Sebastian Shaw?)

  2. Worf says:

    Looks Cool. I need help in identifying all the mutants though… Besides Professor X and Magneto, I got The Beast, Mystique, Emma Frost and a girl I believe to be Jean Gray. Who are the others? The girl with faerie wings? the teleporter? The guy who launches fire balls? And where’s Scott Summers????

  3. remy says:

    The girl with the faerie wings is Pixie, the teleporter is Azazel, Nightcrawler’s biological father. I didn’t see a Jean Grey and I’m not sure about fireball-guy. Scott Summers will not be in this film, I don’t think any of the main X-Men from the first 3 films will be either.

  4. Wade says:

    That’s Havok. Its also got Darwin, Angel Salvadore, Banshee, Mystique and Ripride.

  5. Wade says:

    Sorry I meant Riptide.

  6. John says:

    I’m very pleasantly surprised. Looks tight, bro!

  7. michael says:

    was that pixie?

  8. michael says:

    how is emma frost in htis if professor x meets her in x-men origins wolverine and by then he is already old. wtf?! plus, everyone who sees this movie and then sees the avengers is going to think that the wasp is just the knok-off of pixie!

  9. michael says:

    sorry, htis should be this

    was mystiqe cara from the seeker?

  11. The Imp says:

    The chronology on this doesn’t make a whole lotta sense to me. Looks like it’s set in the 1960s, but you have Mystique and the Beast, maybe others from the previous films. What can be excused in comics (ageless characters) is less easily explained in movies.

  12. ajw says:

    I love beast! This looks awesome if the movie sucks then the cinematography set design and costumes would make it worthwile.

  13. X-stacy says:

    Kelsey Grammar is in his fifties–and it’s hard to see wrinkles under fur. So he could easily have been a teen in the 60s. Mystique in the comics is basically ageless–Destiny was a young woman when they met, and Destiny died an old, old woman while Mystique is still running around looking the same.

    Check out the imdb page for the full cast of characters.

    I think that this is going to be something new. I’m all about making movies based on the stories in the comics but it seems with this movie they are trying to create their own story using characters we know.

    Whether the story is good or not I think the special effects seem to be amazing. It will definitely LOOK good.

  16. ajw says:

    Does azazel teleport? because I didn’t think nightcrawler inherited his powers too just his devilish appearance.

  17. Myro says:

    I’m intrigued, more than I can say for Green Lantern. So it has that going for it.

  18. Wesley Belk says:

    I think it’s a fresh take on what’s slowly becoming a stale franchise. When one has been around for over 40 years, it does start to take it’s toll on the public, but this, this something refreshing.

    And as for Mystique, they are calling her Young Mystique in the credits, so we may see her when she’s younger, but Magneto has gotten older, like it may be the mid-70’s or something when you first see “Young Mystique”.

  19. zaheelee says:

    Even though this looks really good, I have to say that I was never really a Marvel kind of girl, and I am way more excited to see Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern!

  20. zach says:

    omg! beast in this movie looks beast! get it? lol , but seriously i cANT WAIT For this movie! 1st prequel:wolverine xmen origins, 2nd prequel:xmen 1st class, i rate this 10/10

    The girl with wings is Angel Salvadore. I believe that she hides them as tattoos as in the head shot she has them, then wing shot they dissapear

    I’m reposting what said on MIB. You of all people should hate this ruining of the time stream of Marvel.
    “It looks like the costume production value is that of a porn.
    Ever go to UGO’s top 100’s? They had a list of the worst porn spoof films ever. They showed [and censored] all posters. It’s poster looks like the porn spoof about x-men’s poster. The film looks awful. A knee in the face is all this is to my childhood. I am a marvel nerd, and destroying, rewritting and screwing up X-men is like kicking me in the face.
    Beast and Mystique both look faker then the one’s in the 3rd film made in 2007. FAIL.
    Emma Frost looks like more of a stripper then she did in comics, AND she wouldn’t be born yet. They also ruined her powers so far as I can tell.
    Magneto is handsome and almost ageless in the comics with SILVER hair, so they threw that out the window, Professer X’s accent sounds fake, and their outfits look ridiculous.
    OH and Havoc’s in it. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen, it looks like it’ll be worse then 3. This movie is like a God awful 90’s comic written by druken ape men with alzhiemiers. “
