I didnt like the music for this trailer, felt like I was watching a Tim Burton Film!!! As for the rest I'd rather see some of the other Comic book related movies first.

@Ultimate Typeface, they really can't have the original five from the comics be the First Class if they wanted to stick with the X-Film continuity.  Bobby and Warren are too young.  Scott and Jean would be too, really.

I haven't read any X-titles for a long while, but if Marvel hasn't addressed it yet, they're going to have to before long...Magneto's backstory.  The concentration camps of Nazi Germany were 80 years ago now.  If Lensherr was 10 years old when that happened that makes him 90 years old now.  Being bitten by an irradiated spider can happen whenever you need it to, so can being exposed to a gamma bomb.  But unless you're put into stasis like Cap, if you're backstory is rooted in such an iconic period as WWII it's going to be very, very hard to keep justifying why you're still around without petitioning deus ex machina (which comics do all the time so what am I thinking).

I like how half the people here that are complaining about these X-men movies crapping all over canon are the same ones who complain when one of Trekkies complains about Star Trek (2009) crapping all over our franchise.

Buffy fans are next when the reboot comes out a craps all over that franchise. Sadly I am both a Trekkie and a Buffy fan so I have crap all over me. :(

As for these movies, I enjoy them but I do not read X-men comics. But I understand why fans do not like them.

 Because Star Trek (2009) didn't crap all over our franchise.  Time travel changed the entire franchise creating a NEW canon.  Since you're not dealing with it, don't watch any more of the movies.

 As for Buffy, reboot it if they want to, but I don't approve of them doing it without Joss Whedon involved.  I most likely won't see it...but it's existance doesn't negate the awesome 12 seasons that Buffy and Angel provided.

Hold up Therman, the continuity is screwed up anyhow. How come Beast and Mystique are in the later ones?

I suppose the Beast is kind of old in the later flicks and Mystique can shape shift so she would have to deal with wrinkles or sagging so the could be teenagers in this movie. The other originals would only be babies(except  Wolverine who will surely make a cameo in this movie)

Maybe Magneto's power over metal can strengthen the haemoglobin in his blood causing him to age really well? Or maybe he has a mutant healer on his Brotherhood payroll.

My point is that Nicholas Hoult isn't built like Hank McCoy

Mystique's powers allow her to basically renew her genes keeping her young or at least retarding aging similar to Wolverine. She is supposed to be nearly as old as Wolverine for that matter

Magneto and Beast are older in the last X films and here both will be portrayed much younger

It is hard to compare aging continuity in comics  to movies, because if we did every Marvel and DC character would be dead. The whole Magneto thing isn't really a problem. If he was 10 in 1940 and the movies is in the 60's, he's only in his 30's. The problem would be later on but for this movie its fine. Its just everything about the movie that's wrong.

And yeah, its a fact, Banshee in this movie is not Irish born. He's American of Irish decent. A ridiculous change. And while I'm not sure who Havok is older bro or father. He's obviously not Scott younger brother, being a teenager in the 60's. considering Scott is a teen, in the 80's
