X-Men First Class Trailer Arrives Tomorrow, New Pic of Magneto

18 Comments

Ready for Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class”? To be perfectly honest with you, I was ready for it this past Sunday during the Super Bowl, but it never arrived. Well you won’t have to wait TOO much longer. The trailer will be premiering tomorrow on the movie’s Facebook page, which is currently showing off a new movie logo (left, click to enlarge).

“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 Lensherr 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 stop 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.

Meanwhile, EW has premiered this new pic of Michael Fassbender as Magneto (below) looking very stylish and in full costume. One presumes all pretenses of friendship with Charles Xavier have disappeared when ol Mags snapped this picture.

Starring Michael Fassbender, January Jones, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till, Zoë Kravitz, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones, and directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Class is out June 3, 2011.

UPDATE: Here’s the trailer.

    i dont understand why he needs the helmet already

    Everyone thinks that he uses the helmet only to stop Charles Xavier’s powers, but other mutants have mind control and Emma Frost is one of them.

  • Marc Ohhhh

    nice and shiny :D

  • JoeF

    Looks sooooo much better than the other pic of him in a helmet! Hopefully that phase won’t last too long. I have high hopes for this movie – I guess the trailer will reveal all..?

  • Juggernaut

    That is the calibre of picture I was looking for!!! Looks great! Now I’m back on the bandwagon!

      I don’t know about back on the bandwagon but that is a much better pic indeed. LOL> I have a feeling it’s towards the end as he’s in full Magneto mode. Loving the metal room. No one hould walk in there if they want to live.

    I hope they don’t have him wearing a normal leather suit and making him have the ability to fly. In the comic Megneto is able to fly because he wears a metal suit and he just lifts himself with his power.

      He flew/levitated in X3.

        I hope that they try to incorporate the “energy bubble” that is used in the comics and cartoons. I always thought that was cool looking effect. I know that it could come off a little hokey if not done right though.

          YES PLEASE!!!! Comic, games, cartoons, it’s iconic, but mostly just a visual cue that he’s using the powers. Magnetism doesnt have a visual effect in real life. But again I’d love to see it.

          • Juggernaut

            Yeah I agree. You don’t need it and it isn’t realistic but it is iconic as you said above. Singer captured the motions and poses of Magneto perfectly in X-Men and X2. In The Last Stand there wasn’t as much attentin to that type of detail.
