x-men first class
Fans seem to be split on the merits of X-Men: First Class, but recent news may indicate that development on the sequel may be going in a very Claremont/Byrne-oriented direction…
X-Men: First Class was a pretty good movie, and it impressed the studios enough to green light a sequel.
According to SuperHeroHype, 20th Century Fox has hired Simon Kinberg to write the sequel to this year’s X-Men: First Class movie. Kinberg was the writer of X-Men: The Last Stand, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Jumper, and Sherlock Holmes, so he has a track record of success. Let’s see if he can continue to rejuvenate the X-Men franchise with another hit. via SuperHeroHype
The publicity for X-Men: First Class has been in overdrive these last several weeks, and finally the movie has arrived in theaters. In 1963, Charles Xavier starts up a school and later a team, for humans with superhuman abilities. Among them is Erik Lensherr, his best friend… and future archenemy. Did you see the movie? Did you love it, or hate it, and most importantly, why? Did you agree or disagree with the assessment made by guest reviewer Antonio Sanciolo? Did this movie redeem the franchise, or further push it to the pit of despair? It’s time for you to
Still a few days away, but Major Spoilerite Antonio Sanciolo, who runs a movie theater, took a look at X-Men: First Class, and had this to say. The best thing possible that I can point out at the beginning of this review, is that this film is not as bad as X-Men: The Last Stand, which I posit as the actual worst superhero film ever made( in light of its huge budget and the pedigree of many of its actors). How much better is First Class than X3? Ghost-Rider better? Daredevil better? Batman Begins better? Read on to find out…
One of the things you may have noticed is that there seems to be a direct correlation between the amount of hype sent out regarding a movie and how terrible the movie is. Just something to think about as you cast your gaze on the latest television spot for X-Men: First Class. via Super Hero Hype

Here’s another trailer for X-Men: First Class that puts most of the attention on Magneto.
After the initial trailer arrived, I was pretty keen on going to see the movie. After seeing the international posters, I think my interest dropped a notch.
I probably ought to sit down and read the X-Men: First Class series at some point because the cast for the upcoming Michael Vaughn movie keeps getting bigger. The latest to join the film is Jennifer Lawrence, who has been cast as Mystique. The role is a big jump in terms of exposure for Lawrence, who is generating awards buzz for “Winter’s Bone,” and also marks her first studio feature. The actress is about to topline thriller “The House at the End of the Street,” which begins production in Ottawa in August, and will then segue to England for “X-Men.”
