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.
