We still have a little over a month to go before 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios reveal the prequel into theaters but the two studios have managed to turn the last day into what can best be described as X-Men: First Class day. Not only have they revealed a fifth international trailer for the June 3 release but they've also found a way to reveal a new poster (click the photo above) and some new profiles that come with brief interview bits from the stars playing the characters.

Where to begin? Let's first look at a look at character profiles with the actors discussing their individual roles courtesy of MSN Movies and Yahoo Movies. Please take into account that spoiler territory is taken within the quotes.

Nicolas Hault on playing Hank McCoy aka Beast:

"He tries out a serum from Mystique's DNA to try and stop his feet from appearing apelike and massive, because he's very self-conscious about it. Unfortunately that goes wrong and he becomes the Beast that we know from the other films and cartoons and comics."

Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells) on playing Azazel at the Hellfire Club alongside Bacon's Sebastian Shaw:

"Kevin Bacon's got a team of freaky sidekicks, one of them being the fantastic January Jones, and one of them being the not so fantastic bright red Jason Flemyng, and also Alex Gonzalez who plays Riptide. And latterly in the film we recruit Zoe Kravitz as well. They're just goons, but my skill, if I have any skill at all, is to make something out of what on paper isn't too much."

Lucas Till talks about becoming Alex Summers aka Havok:

"In the comics [Havok] has a suit that kind of absorbs excess energy. But it was more like a meter that told him how much power he had, whereas in this one I have something that channels it because I can't control it myself. It's a chest piece that focuses the ray so I don't blow it out everywhere."

And finally, Michael Fassbender chimes in on becoming the new Magneto:

"At the start of the movie we get introduced to Erik as a boy. We start in the concentration camps with him and it cuts to 20 years later and it's the early 60s and it's Erik as a grown man. He's on a quest to get Sebastian Shaw, played by Kevin Bacon. Shaw had him in these concentration camps - and as we know the Nazis were doing lots of experimentation with all sorts of things like measuring skull size and brain size and running experiments on human beings, essentially. Shaw is trying to unleash this power in Magneto - he's recognized that he can manipulate metal - and so we catch up with Erik on a quest to basically hunt Shaw down."

While you can check out the new character poster by clicking photo above, the next item on today's checklist is the fifth international trailer for X-Men: First Class. Just in case in the previous four international trailers didn't quite convince you. Check it out below and sound off with your thoughts.

Thanks to Pendragon0 for the submission.

You know ....Im starting to come around to this movie. It spits in the face of the true X-men fanboys bit it does sound interesting.

The Beast explanation is better than the comic explanation of McKoy just screwing up.

Im looking forward to this twisted tail

 Magnificent -Brilliant - screw the whiners. Story looks amazingly well thought out.

I won't say anything... already made my comments (about the whiners)

I wouldnt mind the liberties they take with X-Men continuity if only they'd at least keep it the same through their X-men movies. Between the first trilogy, wolverine, and now first class, you see more ret-conning than 30 years of comics. Come on, is Emma Frost a kid or a grown woman in the 60's? Is Xavier an old bald guy or a young guy with hair? No doubt this movie will be full of conflicting details with Fox's other X-films, but on the plus side, it DOES look pretty damn good, or maybe its just that cool bit of music the trailer always opens up with.

This trailer is better than any of the Thor, Captain America, or Green Lantern trailers..... I never thought I would be looking forward to this movie more than the other comic book movies this summer........

That's the best trailer yet, really loving Banshee and Havok.

I still wish they had just rebooted the entire franchise instead of stepping on the toes and contradicting the previous films. Plus at the same time they could've fixed all the fuck ups by Singer

 I will see the movie and not completely judge it based on this trailer. I have a feeling that this will turn out to be a good movie.

TNAuditor 4/28/2011 8:13:15 AM

Ok, I was totally a hater when I first saw that this movie was going to try to stay in continuity with the other x films.  But now, I'm kinda digging this.

I wonder if there will be any sightings of Logan in the flashbacks to the war - that would be cool. I wish Marvel had the rights/ownership back for the mutants (and the fantastic four) just so there could be more crossovers.

All in all I like this preview and I think the movie will be good. Its just that the fanboy in all of us will come out when we see who is missing or who is now grown compared to being a teen in other movies that are supposed to take place at a later date. Its called continuity Fox - how about using it.
