Bryan Singer [Director] (The Usual Suspects / Sospechosos Habituales)

X-Men: First Class will begin filming on September 21, 2010 in London.

The plot is as follows: "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." Regarding the film's story, director Matthew Vaughn said, "The story that Bryan Singer came up with is very, very smart ... It's very clever when you see how he has integrated the characters into the time period where the film is set. I'll put it that way. I just don't want to give it away. ... It's a very clever way of getting these characters involved in recent history, in recent world events." He has also confirmed that it is a prequel to the first three movies.

The cast includes James McAvoy as the young Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr, who becomes Magneto, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy, also known as Beast,Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Oliver Platt as "The Man in Black", a character who is not a mutant, Zoë Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Lucas Till as Havok,Edi Gathegi as Darwin,Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Bill Milner as young Magneto, Morgan Lily as young Mystique and January Jones will be Emma Frost.
