Movie producerand guys from AICN shared something fresh about the X-Men: First Class project. Check out the most interesting parts.
“The film takes place in the 1960’s. John F Kennedy is the President of the United States. Martin Luther King andare on TV doing marches. There is a spirit of a hopeful future that was prevalent in that time.
We will see how Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr met – and how they dreamt of a future with Mutant & Human kind. They’re going to be in their late twenties. Xavier will not be in his wheelchair to begin the film – but we will see how he wound up in a wheelchair.
We’ll see McAvoy and Fassbender’s Magneto formulate what it is they are attempting by creating the X-Men.”
Bryan Singer also revealed that: “…this is not the conventional First Class comic – but rather a new beginning for X-Men. Set in the 60s – Vaughn is technologically inspired by’s tech of the time.
The costumes will be far more comic bookish than we’ve seen before – and while Scott and Jean aren’t here – Cyclops’ brother Alex Summers aka Havoc will be, as played by Lucas Till.”
As for– he will indeed be playing Sebastian Shaw in the film, as a key member of the Hellfire Club.
