X-Men: First Class Recreating The Opening Scene From X-Men

A lot of people have been wondering how Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class” will fit in with the rest of the movies. Bleeding Cool reports that the opening scene of the entire series, the scene from the camp in Poland in 1944 that introduced audiences to Eric Lensherr (who of course grows up and becomes Magneto), is being recreated shot-for-shot.

Near the end of the sequence there will be a few dramatic twists, and there is also a different cast. Bill Milner, who was great in “Son of Rambow”, takes over the role of young Eric. This is a great scene, and yet one more reason to be excited for “X-Men: First Class” next year.
