Finally, here’s a look at “X-Men: First Class.”
From what is shown, Michael Fassbender (pictured at right) appears to be an excellent Magneto. As a fan of previous work, I had a feeling he would be. James McAvoy, whom I’ve grown fond of since “The Last King of Scotland” isn’t exactly wowing me with his portrayal of Xavier. However, as a whole, “X-Men: First Class” is looking pretty impressive and better than I thought it would.
Focusing on the character introductions, we see Emma Frost (January Jones) in what appears to be an interrogation room. Angel (Zoe Kravitz) flutters her wings. Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicolas Hoult) sits with a syringe in hand. Havoc (Lucas Till) and Darwin (Edi Gathegi are in the next few frames. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) close out the remaining “First Class” cast.
I have to say, 20th Century Fox included just enough action sequences to combat any negative buzz and pique my waning interest. I’ll definitely watch “X-Men: First Class” in a theater come June 3.
Sound off to the right with your opinion. What do you think of the trailer?
