I am an absolute sucker for special features on Blu-rays and DVDs, but one thing I've never cared too much about is deleted scenes. While there is the occasional gem - I still can't figure out why J.J. Abrams cut the Klingons out of Star Trek - most of the scenes are fairly pointless and were left out of the final cut for a reason (it's why I'm not a big fan of studio-created "extended editions" either). Fortunately, the Blu-ray/DVD for X-Men: First Class will have one of those rare gems. Check out the scene below, posted by EW (embed courtesy of FilmDrunk)

For those that don't remember - June 3rd feels like it was so long ago - most of this scene is actually in the movie, but there is one part that hit the cutting room floor: Magneto in a dress. Now, while Michael Fassbender may be a good looking dude, he makes for one seriously ugly woman. I don't think it's that hard to figure out why this was dropped from the movie that was sent to theaters, but apparently this is only the first of 13 deleted scenes that will be featured on the new release and if any of the special features are even half as good as this short clip it will be worth your money. X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, is set to be released on home video September 9th.
