More X-Men: First Class Clips

Latest X-Men: First Class material before it hits next week.

With just a week to go before it arrives in theaters, 20th Century Fox is unleashing some last-minute clips for their superhero origin tale, X-Men: First Class. A new TV spot can be seen here and you can check out another clip and teaser down below. You can also watch the previous three clips here, here and here.

The adventure tale also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Edi Gathegi, Bill Bilner, Jason Flemyng, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily and Zoe Kravitz. Helmer Vaughn led the direction, based on a screenplay by Josh Schwartz, Jamie Moss, Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz and Jane Goldman.

Plot Concept: "X-Men: First Class" charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

X-Men: First Class strikes theaters June 3, 2011.

Feeling grumpy and trying hard not to bitch about the changes. Even though I've mostly accepted this X-universe I have days when I want to scream and tear Singer apart

When I first heard about this movie I hated it.  Now, I'm pretty sure I have to see it.  :-)

Good God, the chick with the wings is even called Angel. So why not call Alex Summers Cyclops? Mystique = Phoenix?

Darwin? talk about picking at the bottom of the barrell.

So, there is talks of an X-men : Second Class if this one is successful. I could already guess who will be in the second class. Any mutants not used so far. Cannonball, Polaris, Jubilee, Thunderbird and Bishop.

groan....

I'm with you Wiseguy. It's apparently getting good reviews, which means it could make decent box office cash and encourage Singer and Fox to keep butchering this franchise instead of full blown reboot.

Btw, the chick with wings real name is Angel Salvadore even in the comics. Some around here have confused her with Pixie. Anyway she did use the name Angel which is her real name, later on she went with Tempest when she joined the New Warriors

I was about to say the same thing about "Angel" lol.  That she is a character in the comics.  I'm not liking this Mystique and Xavier scene at all.  I was just thinking WTF after watching is.  She looks like a smurf lol.  I really wish Marvel Studios would get the rights to these movies.  That way they can be done from scratch, from the very beginning, done like they were supposed to be done.  The characters in the comics are so rich with history and development.  None of which is present in any X-Men movie they've put out so far.  And don't even get me started on how much they've twisted the heck out these characters and storylines to the point where I don't even feel it's reall the X-Men anymore...  One can only wish to one day see a faithful adaptation.

I see. I actually thought it was Pixie until this trailer.

Don't think it matters. Didn't like Pixie or Angel Salvadore in the comics. What next in X-men Second Class? Maggot, Skin and Stacey X?

 Chamber!  Bring on Chamber!

But seriously, throwing comic continuity out the window, this looks like a good movie.  I would love to see a "canonical" representation of the comics.  But until then we'll have to deal with Lisa Bonet's daughter with wings.  Hawt.

Hey, it's that kid from the last Doctor Who Christmas special!

everyone talks about continuity... and I don't blame you guys and am also not trying to trample your opinions, because they are just that, your opinions and your entitled to them. I just don't like all the venom (no pun intended) the X films are getting. Singer's first and second one are still awesome to me a non-comic reader. I understand there are rich backstorys in the comics, but there can only be so much done in film and while there are honest incarnations (lets not forget that Marvel made Iron Man, and that it isn't true in every form and aspect to the comic, case in point Afghanistan versus Vietnam...), like has been said on here before it is just yet another of many different tales for the continuum.

I feel you on wishing more faithful adaptions of things... Jurassic Park is a great film, but it is an even better book and if the book were to be followed... well I think it would be awesome but the average moviegoer might not... who knows... we should all be able to agree that us fanboys of any genre never really truly get our way on any adaptation.

I want a Mr. Freeze who doesn't suck... I want Superman to fight someone other than Luthor and Zod... I want Flash on the silver screen dagnabit... will I ever get them? maybe, maybe not... either way, I'll enjoy this film, and for me I'll probably enjoy it more because I'm more familiar with the Singerverse films and this ties into that. Hopefully the rest of you who disagree (trying to show all the love I can Wise, we've agreed on alot so far while I've been on here, but we disagree healthily as well), will one day get the faithful adaptaion you desire. only time will tell. until then, lets just rejoice that the genre at least exists as it does now as opposed to what it was in the 90's for a while... Steel, anyone? oh well...
