X-Men: First Class Synopsis

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.

The X-Men First Class Characters Might Have A Much Different Future Than We Thought The X-Men First Class Characters Might Have A Much Different Future Than We Thought

X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg recently explained that he sees X-Men: Apocalypse as ending a trilogy that began with First Class, “complete the stories” of young Mystique, Beast, Magneto and Professor Xavier. These comments naturally had us worried, fearing that these four integral characters would be somehow walking off into the sunset, but fortunately Kinberg has now set the record straight.

With this artifact shot, Singer’s reminding us of the importance of the First Class universe, as we’ll likely spend half of Days of Future Past in that era, where a young(er) Wolverine will have to connect to James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier so that the mutant leader will not give up on the human race, letting Magneto (Michael Fassbender) triumph.

X-Men: First Class was one of the more rushed blockbuster productions in recent memory, with Matthew Vaughn signing on as director in May of 2010, just 13 months before the June 2011 release.

You may not know this, but X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not meant to be the only solo spin-off movie for the comic book franchise. For a while Fox was also developing X-Men Origins: Magneto, which would tell the back story of the universe's most famous villains. That project never came to be, of course, but the in-development script was re-appropriated for X-Men: First Class last summer and the growth of Magneto was paralleled with the growth of Charles Xavier.

All signs are pointing to Thor, Captain America and Green Lantern getting sequels, but if there's any superhero movie from 2011 that actually truly deserves a sequel it's X-Men: First Class. Going a different direction than the other films in the franchise, the movie was a ridiculously cool period piece featuring awesome performances, particularly from Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.

Interview: Donner On R-Rated Deadpool And Delayed Japanese Wolverine Interview: Donner On R-Rated Deadpool And Delayed Japanese Wolverine

The X-Men franchise has seen many different directors, writers, and actors, but one name that has been attached to all of them is producer Lauren Shuler Donner. Ever since 2000, when Bryan Singer first brought the uncanny heroes to the big screen, Donner has been behind the scenes making it all work and in the case of X-Men: First Class, she helped the project hit it out of the park.

Michael Fassbender Wears A Dress In First Deleted Scene From X-Men: First Class Michael Fassbender Wears A Dress In First Deleted Scene From X-Men: First Class

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).
