Our friends at Collider posted this first image of the cast of "X-Men: First Class." Are you interested in this Matthew Vaughn-directed film? I enjoyed "Kick-Ass" so I have faith that Vaughn will take this franchise higher!
"X-Men: First Class" arrives in theaters June 3rd from Fox. So what is the film about? Here you go:
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. 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. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
Here's more info on the film from Yahoo:
The teenage years of the mutants are explored at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.
