So Bryan Singer just called regarding Matthew Vaughn's X-MEN: FIRST CLASS... I'm quite excited now.

Hey folks, Harry here with a great update on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS that just came from Producer: Bryan Singer - who tells me he's been working on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS for over a year now and with the looming August 31st, filming date approaching - he wanted to clarify some of what it is they're doing. First off - the film takes place in the 1960's. John F Kennedy is the President of the United States. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X are 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 - as played by James McAvoy will not be in his wheelchair to begin the film - but we will see how he wound up in a wheelchair. I asked if McAvoy would have a nice shiny chrome dome - and folks. We're going to see Professor X when he still had hair. We'll see McAvoy and Fassbender's Magneto formulate what it is they are attempting by creating the X-MEN. Now Bryan wanted us to know 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 JAMES BOND'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. With January Jones and Kevin Bacon playing Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw - we will be getting the HELLFIRE CLUB. I commented that the HELLFIRE CLUB has always felt like something that it would be wrong to modernize, as it felt as though it were something specific to the swinging Hefner era of the 60s... and Bryan said that's exactly why they're making use of the HELLFIRE CLUB... the dress and the costumes associated with that glorious period of the X-MEN... belong in the 60s. I asked if Kevin Bacon would be sporting that little ponytail with the ribbon - Bryan laughed and said, "We'll see". In regards to the cast, Bryan was especially excited to land Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast. Nicholas was set for FURY ROAD, but their start date shifted which opened up his availability for FIRST CLASS. Also - Rose Byrne is playing Moira MacTaggert, I liked her in KNOWING. And I think she's fairly perfect for Moira. The cast list over on IMDB is correct (with the exception of the Rosamund Pike rumor). Looks like filming will begin with Xavier at Oxford University in the 60s. And Bryan is excited that the film is going to have a much more international feel than the prior X-MEN movies. They'll be shooting in England & the United States - and they'll be representing other locales around the globe as well, but would only tell me that Russia (aka The Soviet Union... CCCP) will be amongst them. He doesn't want to show all the cards just yet. But the International flavor will give the film a more James Bond vibe... I get the idea that this is going to be something quite special. How can I say that based on a quick conversation with Bryan? Well... folks, this is the first time that we're going to get a silver age MARVEL story. That's incredibly exciting to me. Hearing Bryan actually saying that the costumes will be far more reflective of what we saw in the comics - well that is exciting. But more than that... I just can't wait to see young vital versions of Xavier and Magneto played by excellent actors in their prime. But more so... This is the time for Matthew Vaughn to shine. I loved KICK ASS, but it didn't have the namebrand of X-MEN or the scope that those stories have. Here, everything that Vaughn has can be put on display. Having Vaughn work in a James Bond-esque period - that was the period that the X-MEN first came to life. There's potential for something amazing. There are characters that we're not being told about though. Bryan said so. And we can all speculate as to who they are. We know we're going to have Darwin, Young Raven Darkholme, Banshee, Havok, lil Mystique, Azazel, Emma Frost, Beast, Xavier, Magneto and a female Angel. So... who's missing? Well - I'm kinda hoping for Donald Pierce and Harry Leland - myself. How about you? Oh, I just remembered, I asked Singer when we can expect our first look at some of the costumes and the look they're going for and he told me to expect something in about a month, if not sooner. So seems like we'll begin to have a clue pretty soon.

    Why is it so difficult?

    by allstarninja

    Why is it so difficult to do a kick ass (pun intended) movie that shows the first class from the comics? You get guys like singer involved and it becomes more about the costumes then the story. Is it so hard to put a story together based on this (http://www.comicvine.com/x-men-x-men/37-6694/)? Superman Returns was HORRIBLE. This will probably be about the same, but at least we'll get some really hunky guys for singer to drool over during shoots and some gender neutral female stars that are covered up to the neck.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:25 p.m. CST

    Meh, gimme a good, modern X-men story

    by Han Cholo

    Honestly, it doesn't sound that great to me. Just seems like they didn't know how to fix the abortion that was X-men 3 but Fox needed to keep the money machine rolling so they went the all-too-often used prequel route. <p> No Jean and Scott? They on vacation somewhere? Lame.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:32 p.m. CST

    People WILL by this movie

    by kafka07

    fuck Wolverine. We've got Matthew Vaughn on this. Have you seen Kick Ass?? And this will be silver age. And they'll have the costumes from the comics for a fucking change. Great casting, awesome characters. I'm liking everything I've heard about this production so far.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:33 p.m. CST

    Good to hear something specific...

    by Chewtoy

    ...Because the individual bits of news about this were all over the place. Now it at least seems to have some sort of vision to it. It still seems very odd, and I hate to lose out on Sir Ian and Sir Patrick as they were by far the best thing going with the prior films. But now Im at least somewhat interested again.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:35 p.m. CST

    Harry, why couldn't you just say...

    Wolverine had Gavin Hood and David Benioff

    by JacksonSchitt

    And look what happened. I have faith in Vaughn and Goldman, but I also fully expect Fox to interfere to the point of ruining the entire film.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:41 p.m. CST

    Angel

    by Taytertot9

    Haven't bothered to look up the woman playing Angel, but I would assume they mean the Angel that Grant Morrison thought up around the "Here Comes Tomorrow" arc. She was a black teen with fly wings and could vomit acid. Had about 8 kids with bird-boy The Beak.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 7:42 p.m. CST

    That actually sounds promising....

    by TedKordLives

    But I'll believe it when I see it. And by 'see it' I mean a trailer, not the movie. I skipped Wolverine and I'm still planning on skipping this, unless Vaughn sneaks an end run around the Fox execs waiting to ruin it.

    by SierraTangoFoxtrotUniform

    He has to constantly remind us that he still thinks he has pull and relevance in Hollywood. If he were as good at reviewing and being a webmaster as he is at name-dropping, we'd be on the best site in the world. Right now, at best, this site is maybe top 1000 in movie site ratings. Maybe. And that's on a good day.

    I'm guessing Magneto cripples Xavier

    by BP_drills_america_a_new_asshole

    Xavier is hanging by his fingernails from a great height. Magneto has the chance to save him but lets him fall. Next scene - a bitter Charles in his wheelchair. Across the city Magneto is scowling in his new helmet. That's how it ends folks.

    JAMES BOND-ESQUE?????

    by THE TRUE PINBACK

    I have been reading the X-Men comics sonce the 60's and they are in no way James Bond-esque. I have a feeling this will be a big travesty for fans. If you want that BOND vibe, why not make NICKJ FURY, AGENT OF SHIELD. I hope they can manage to salvage this...

    wait..this creates all kinds of continuity errors

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    The first x-men was set slighty in the future (so perhaps 2001 or 2002) wolverine wasn't clear on its timeline but the majority of it seemed to take place in the 80's (or late 70's). But emma frost was like 18 in wolverine - now she's older in a story that is set before those events?? <P>Plus X-men opened with an 11-12 year old magneto in a concentration camp during WW2... so if this is early 60's then he should be in his 30's not 20's, <P>Plus beast is in this and he was in X-3, so was he supposed to be like 80 in x-3?<p>Mra Targart was also in x-3 but if she's in this and is the same age as Xaviar, then she should have been in her 60's in x-3 but she appeard to be 40's at the oldest.<P> this is worse then the rocky movies where he came back from russia in part 5 and his kid had aged 6 years..and then 16 years later he de-aged for rocky balboa and only appeard in his early 20's, I fucking hate when they just ignore ages..star trek did it too when scotty mentions admiral archer and his beagal..you know 150 year old archer and his 90 year old dog...cause that makes sense JJ

    I then remember that Fox is the studio behind it. And I remember that they won't ever spend the goddamn money to do the X-Men justice on the big screen. I don't want to rain on any parades here, just a friendly reminder before all our hopes are dashed...again.

    by Peter Franks

    that Bryan Singer's X-Films (while the second was semi-decent) are NOT the fucking X-Men. Keep that black leather Matrix costume shite the fuck away from my Marvel U. At least we may get that rectified as Vaughn showed with Kick-Ass that he's not afraid of color in his heroes supersuits.

    by bishopfan85

    X-Men is already turning into Star Trek: The Next Generation focusing too much on the whole "symbolism" of mutants representing minorities and homosexuals in other words being too technical and not enough fun. I was very much hoping that if there were any new X films that they'd go a more future Sci-Fi blockbuster action route with maybe some Cable/Bishop(did my AICN name give it away)/Gambit/Wolverine (with eye patch)/Sentinels/Brood/Apocalypse/Forge/Phoenix/Guardian/Skrulls action

    by ForkTongue

    That will build on the mutant universe? So if it's a hit.....than you do a First Class Part 2.....and possibly an Xmen 4? <p> I don't get how Beast is in this but no Jean or Cyclops and we are going to have a female angel. I mean, Angel was always pretty feminine so I don't know if my fandom should be annoyed by that or not. <p> Harry should play Mojo when they introduce Longshot into this universe.

    Wolverine Origins Fucked Up the Entire Series' Continuity

    by evolution1085

    So now the girl who saved Scott and could turn into diamond wasn't Emma Frost, even though she's billed in the movie as Emma Frost, and Cyclops' now younger brother is active before even he's supposed to be alive... i understand the "movie universe" is different from the comics, but all they do with these "reimaginings" is ruin all the good stories they could tell by making them near impossible with the lineups they want to use... If you want to tell a real xmen origin story and reboot the franchise, do a first half movie with Xavier and Magneto becoming ideologically polar opposites, then have him go after the nuclear silos and Cyclops, Jean, Beast, Angel and Iceman save the day... until that point, bring on the bootleg workprints

    Disappointed in this, but not surprised

    by Outlaw24

    I liked X-Men and thought I loved X2: X-Men United. But in hindsight, I realize that what I liked the most about X2 was the promise of what X3 could potentially be: a story that actually featured Scott and Jean, two characters that have anchored many a great X-Men story but none better than the Phoenix Saga. When X3 did show up, it was the exact opposite of what I wanted to see. The Wolverine film only ventured further down that hole. 20th Century Fox has simply mishandled a franchise that could have been synonymous with quality films rather than just big name-recognition box office (which frankly anything as popular as X-Men would get regardless of what the movie is like...a fact that 20th Century Fox seems to know quite well). I was willing to accept that it was the departure of Brian Singer that hurt the franchise most, but in hindsight, Superman Returns was quite dull and it was clear that Singer was focused more on putting interesting ideas into the movie than the idea of making an interesting movie. And clearly, X2 without the payoff of a quality Phoenix Saga-infused story is actually just a pretty good sequel to X-Men instead of the epic standalone comic book adaptation I'd like to believe it was. Hearing about First Class and Matthew Vaughn, I had hope for this movie in spite of Fox's and Singer's proven track records. Perhaps with a proper reboot of sorts, Singer could help realign a franchise that could never seem to achieve the hype it promised. But now I see that this is no reboot, just a silly '60s prequel. Just like with Superman Returns, Singer is more preoccupied with the interesting ideas of setting his "mutants-are-another-word-for-anyone-who-is-oppressed" themes in a different historical time period than he is with making an X-Men movie that can live up to the potential the first two X-Men films demonstrated. And 20th Century Fox is just happy to slap an X in the title and watch the money stack itself up for them in neat little piles. It's disappointing to see, but not surprising. The ONLY remaining saving grace may be Matthew Vaughn, whose proven track record in interesting movies makes him the Wild Card. I'm not excited about the prospects of this film and I fear the worst for the end result. Fox and Singer have so far not given me a reason to expect otherwise. Matthew Vaughn: Prove Me Wrong.

    by rbatty024

    I thought Havoc was younger than Cyclops. If they wanted to use a "summers" kid,to stay in continuity with the movies they will be screwing up the continuity of anyway, they should of given this "summers" mutant, a name like Vulcan. <p>No Cyclops or Jean Grey? and New Age X-men characters in the 60s? This is going to suck. We will get at least five minutes of Vaughn and Goldman, scene and dialog, I hope.

    That's the only way this could actually work. I don't mind them futzing around with Havok's timeline and such given the fucked-up hash they made of the first 3 films' continuity and chars. This could actually be good. <p> OTOH, Singer has GOT to stay out of production. The man is a drab, cheerless filmmaker who is ashamed of comic books and their flights of fancy and has done everything to try to suck all the life and energy out of their high-flying concepts. X-Men 2 was GOOD, not GREAT, and it was hamstrung by his dowdy, blah approaches to the X-Men, black leather, thin characters, etc. The first film was just mediocre. Singer cannot be heavily involved, because he is ashamed of these properties and his scripts are passe.

    by boogel

    I know they are going out of their way to not call this a relaunch/reimagining of the series but that has to be what this is. New director with all new actors set in an entirely new time period makes this that by default. If this makes money then what we will see is another two or three movies with this cast paving over the previous movies. Which as far as I'm concerned isn't a bad thing. Top of my list in things to fix is casting an African as Storm.

    I think they fucked up calling this X-Men First Class, and fucked up calling X-Men Origins Wolverine, Wolverine should have simply been called Wolverine and this movie should have been called X-Men Origins<br />This movie per the plot summary from Fox :<br />"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. "<br />X-Men First Class should be about a younger Scott, Jean, Beast, hell you could add Havok to that one and should be a different movie

    first appeared in the 1980s but they were based on an episode of the BBC TV show 'The Avengers' from the swinging 60s.

    'Kick-Ass' is easily my favorite film of 2010...

    by RandySavage

    and not because of Hit Girl or Big Daddy, but because Vaughn set out to make a twisted version of 'Spiderman I', and he succeeded brilliantly. Kick-Ass has its flaws, but I find it more entertaining and repeatable than any other movie of the past couple years. <P> Now I don't know much about - or read any - comics or graphic novels, but I also think Matthew Vaughn's 'Stardust' is a great movie. <P> There is something that really appeals to me about Vaughn's style of directing - he doesn't overextend himself or get too ambitious with story. He doesn't make many mistakes. He has good comic timing and his films are quick-tempo, entertaining and effortless. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. <P> I would not care at all about X-men: First Clas under normal circumstance, but Vaughn has me very interested.

    by bishopfan85

    I don't think anyone in their right mind would be asking for X-Men to go the way of "mindless blockbusters" like Terminator 2, what I'm saying is that the X-Men franchise sounds like it's headed towards being comparable to Star Trek the Next Generation when it would be much better if it was like the much more adored Star Trek reboot. Better not to use any analogies because what I'm really looking for is a substantial, in depth, action filled (with an intelligent story) well paced Sci-Fi Action Drama with a strong and intense musical score and unforgettable "moments" that makes the film unforgettable. A period piece X-Men movie featuring characters I was never really in love with may be golden but it's not what I was hoping for.

    Fox & Sony VS Marvel Studio's movieverse

    by EastcoastAvenger

    I'm quite curious how Marvel will stand by the movies they themselves are not making. It is obvious that Marvel Studio has something special going on that will continue to encapsulate the history of Marvel comics on screen. With word going out that their next big push after the Avengers will be to explore the more cosmic elements and characters Marvel studio movies are set to be huge. However, how sucky is it that we won't get to see Spidy swing past The Baxter Building on his way to help Dr. Strange. How utterly craptastic that we won't get to enjoy seeing a scene where Wolverine throws down with the Hulk! Fox and Sony Marvel films will be divorced from Marvel Movie cannon. Not having Spiderman part of Marvels cannon just won't do. Shame on you D.C.! All your characters are under one roof and you have never appreciated having the ability to tell powerful (and profitable) stories using them together.

    WHAT XMEN MISSED

    by Unlabled

    SENTINELS!!! Jesus christ. They had the perfect 3rd movie: Magneto pulls off some crazy shit, the government deploys Sentinels, Beast freaks out and joins fully with the X-men. Picard and Gandalf realize they need to team up to defeat the Sentinel menace but they still argue about with, way to go about doing it. Meanwhile, Scott and Jean are going through their own shit. At the end Jean sacrifices herself as the Phoenix, flies into outerspace after saving the world. The government feels bad about the Sentinels, so Frazier is elected president. Which leads to Xmen 4: In Outerspace

    Can't buy anything Singer says about FIRST CLASS

    by GimpInMyPants

    Every time someone involved in a movie pimps it out as the cure for cancer, we can't buy into it. Robert Kirkman is currently pimping the adaption of his comic series. You can't believe what he says. Stan Lee praises every movie based on one of his comic books. You can't buy what he says! Anybody involved in one of these things can't shit on it, no matter the quality of what they're seeing with their own eyes. FIRST CLASS sounds like a disaster. Bryan Singer has earned his geek points but his optimism can't be trusted.

    Remembering Batman....

    by Traveler 27

    Sounds to me like too many cooks in the kitchen. My guess is they have to run this into the ground as a total mess, which it already is, and when the movies are so bad no one wants to see them anymore, the rights will go back to marvel. And it won't be soon, I figure 10-15 years before that happens. Executives don't have "love" for the projects, they see franchises, money, toys- this is the current business model. As for Singer, all I can say is that some people ride a couple of successes for far too long, because it is easier for an executive to trust "Bryan Singer, director of the hits X-MEN and X-MEN 2" than it is to trust the Bryan Singer who hasn't done a sucessful film in quite a long time; I would also hazard a guess that his superiors don't want to lay it down for him the way it actually is, i.e. he isn't being challenged on his authority as a geek movie maker, because hey, he just MIGHT have another surprise hit in him...same goes for Shymalan...you know. It's like dating the same shallow woman over and over again, hoping that THIS time, she'll fall in love with you, instead of remembering that what made the first 2 xmen, superman the movie, and batman begins stand out was the boldness and chance taking in the approach to the characters. setting it back in the 60s is a gimmick, expensive, unnecessary, and a mistake. I myself will hope for a proper 80s era Claremont x-men that references the original 60s cast as the starting point, complete with sentinels, an x-jet with shi'ar technology, genosha...the possibilities are staggering. and the stories were GREAT. Green Lantern will probably shift popular conception as to what is POSSIBLE, and the xmovies will become even more dijointed. i could be wrong though.

    I don't think it's any coincidence that this article came out not a few days after the production was called into question over the timelines involved. I for one am intrigued by the period that's being captured, the cast and the characters. However you can still see a lot of negativity in this TB alone, and I think that's from the belief that this will be a rushed, hackjob. I think it would go a long way to quell fan's fears and to engender a positive buzz if we could hear from Vaughn on this, especially as to how he will get a finished film into cinemas within 9mths.

    Nolan doesn't need Harry. Singer kinda does.

    by BP_drills_america_a_new_asshole

    Nolan's a great film maker (duh, stating the obvious there) and he doesn't need a fat goof like Harry pimping his films for him. Hence no "So Chris Nolan just called..." article for Harry and his consequent mega shit on Inception.<P>Singer has pissed off most of the world with Superman, and he knows most people are highly skeptical about First Class. Hence his call to give Harry some admittedly juicy reveals. Now Harry feels happy, he feels "connected" he feels like he's "inside". And AICN will pimp this movie till it comes out. And unless it is a complete steaming pile, we'll get a gushing review from Harry. And Harry will give Batman 3 a very lukewarm review even though it will be about ten million times better than First Class. Harry is just so fucking predictable with these things. He fails to comprehend that people ONLY call him if they are seriously concerned their movie will tank. No one gives a fuck about him per se.

I no longer have any interest in this franchise. And of course Harry will gush all over this movie when it comes out because Singer called him, ergo he has to kiss his ass.

    Of all the MArvel films that have come out, two SCREAM for reboots...THE FANTASTIC FOUR and THE X-MEN. It is way past time when they should completely rework these comic-to-film entrie. X-MEN could be soooo great if they would just start ov er and SCIK TO THE CONTINUITY SET UP IN THE EARLY COMICS!!! You don't have to have Wolverine, Storm or any of the other New X-Men characters. Stick with Xavier, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman and the early days of Professor X's program. All these filmmakers are doing right now is further crewing up what is already broken beyond repair. It is a fucking shame that the people at Marvel Studios can't get this franchise back and make a film that would truly be worthy of this property.

    Bryan Singer's Gay

    by Flummage

    You need to know this and it needs to be said. Repeatedly. It is destroying my X-Men movies. It destroyed my Superman movie -- the gayness, of this Bryan Singer -- and it seems to be destroying anything this, very gay, director touches!<p> Gay!<p><p> Always the most fun part of Singer-related talkbacks, is watching talkbackers stumble through their issues with sexuality, by vilifying Singer for his. <p> Good times!

    Silver Age X-Men

    by Flummage

    There's so little to >love< from the recent trilogy (as apposed to mark off as merely not-so-awful) that a new, more expressive and stylized iteration for me is kind of welcome. <p> I wouldn't imagine much would have me very interested in the film up to now, but a "Silver Age" spin on things, as tempered as it may well end up being, has piqued the part of me that still likes having itself piqued. <p> Be interesting to see how invested in their aesthetic they are when they give throw down these upcoming costume-designs.

    X2

    by Kaitain

    I have no idea why so many people hold this in high regard. The final thirty minutes are AWFUL. The opening hour is pretty darn good, I'll grant you, but a bad final reel (and this is BAD) removes any chance of a movie being awarded a gold star. <p> As another minor niggle, the movie steals too much from Wrath of Khan, with Jean Grey in the Spock role at the end (saving the ship by sacrificing herself, being set up for a regeneration in the next movie) and The Once and Future King taking the place of A Tale of Two Cities.

    Hating X-Men 2 screams fanboy loathing

    by shutupfanboy

    Its one of the best superhero movies ever. Anyone ragging it is trying to earn some silly internet fanboy creed. As for this idea, its going to wreck the entire continuity and screams of reboot. Marvel needs to get this franchise back soon. As for Singer being gay, so what? X-Men is about civil rights and there is no better person to steer this ship away from the utter crap that was X-3. People need to get over it.

    Hating X2

    by SwedishChef

    is a matter of opinion. I myself don't like it because the depictions of the characters are off. Cyclops continues the trend set up in the first Xmen film of being an unlikeable wimp. Storm is not the African regal goddess that she should be. Xavier once again serves no purpose other than to be incapacitated again just like the first film. It is all Wolverine's story which is not what the Xmen are all about. In summation, X2 is a good film, just not a good Xmen film.

    Flummage: his gayness caused all the problems

    by UltraTron

    with his films so far. It was the gayness that was to blame and you know it. Case in point: his superman is such a non role model that he knocks up his woman and then abandons her for absolutely no reason. She hates him as much as we do for the entirety of the film. There is nothing on display in this movie except a dysfuctional parallel of singer's own gay life. I blame the gayness for these decisions. I doubt that a hetero man could have conceived such a weak vision for what is supposed to be the übermensch.

    by SwedishChef

    The problem with Superman Returns lied with Superman himself. He was not heroic. He leaves Earth for years and doesn't even have the decency to say goodbye to the women he loves. The act of a coward. He comes back then tries to hit on Lois knowing she has another boyfriend. He mopes around through the whole film and is just unlikeable. Donner's Superman was the story of essentially an immigrant coming to a new land accepting it as his new home. That is all thrown out the window in SR as he leaves for several years without telling anyone. Please. That movie sucked donkey balls in 100 degree weather.

Masively popular since the 60's with the comic set up, Fox decides the main villain, up there with Darth Vader as one of the most iconic of all time, should instead be a former member of the team?<br><br>Superman? hey, let's give him a son, never had one in the classic comics but never mind!<br><br>I like Vaughn but think he would have done something GREAT with a 'classic' X-MEN set up rather than this.

    X-Men First Class: hopefully it keeps that BSG movie on hold

    by lv_426

    BSG ended only about a year ago, and Caprica is just getting started. They need to wait and take their time to do a great Battlestar, and not merely a good one (I'm looking at you JJ-Trek). If done right, BSG could be the best big budget Hollywood space opera since the original Star Wars (episodes IV-VI).<P>Also, the idea of going back and basing it on the old Battlestar continuity is the wrong approach. Singer seems to want to do what he did with Superman Returns. His BSG movie would pick up years after the end of the old series. Wrong idea. They need to reboot so that the masses who have no clue about BSG get the epic and devastating origin story about the destruction of the 12 colonies of Kobol.<P>As for X-Men, it sounds interesting going back to the 60's. I dig the idea of the Bond style they want to emulate in terms of designs and costumes. Although, I wonder if Hollywood is gonna plunder the Bond-verse for the next few years since 007 is stuck in movie limbo due to MGM's problems?<P>Sentinels would be awesome though. Although, didn't they come later in the X-Men timeline?

His spine is irreversibly shattered and Stark decides that the element that controlled the coaster is too powerful. So he destroys the designs but inbeds them in the architecture of the park in the hope that his son might harness the power

    This would seem more logical. I've no idea why we are getting an Alex Summers who is supposed to be Scott's brother but is old enough to be his father now. Why not just have it Scott's father and have it that he's a mutant. FOX and Singer have already screwed up the history to where it can be nothing but an alternate earth Xmen story.

    by cineninja

    ...but not a good XMen: First Class Movie. Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel and Beast. Singer painted himself in to a corner with the XMen movies and now he CANT do a REAL XFC which is a shame because Id love to see that crew in a 60s era movie. Guess they didnt have the balls to re-boot it and do it right. Cerebro tells me this will be a fail... a massive mess of meandering mutant mediocrity much like WOLVERINE and X3. What a shame....

    But in all seriousness...

    by The_Motorcycle_Boy

    Nice info, Harry, but I just don't have any hope for this one. Prequels are counter-productive because existing sequels dictate where the story can go. We all know who will live and who will die, and this will rob the film of any tension. Can anybody name a good prequel? Godfather Part II, but that runs alongside an ongoing narrative, so serves more as flashbacks. Prequels are lazy filmmaking and only serve to dilute and/or contradict establish elements (midichlorians). Add to that the rushed production and the fact that is a Fox film and this doesn't sound promising.

    by eveelcapitalist

    Most of the characters are 80s Claremont era creations! And what's this shit about the costumes looking more like the comics? Jesus Christ, read between the lines people! It means there isn't any money in the costume department budget and they're throwing together anything with the cheapest materials possible. Swinging 60s vibe, goddamn but you people are fucking gullible. Try 1960s production quality with awful, ridiculous looking costumes, shitty FX and lousy acting because 20th Century Fox is only giving this movie nine and a half months from filming to release and the production stuff is gonna have to do a half assed rush job on just about everything. This movie is going to FUCKING SUCK but since Singer tickled Knowles' hairy asshole with a near meaningless status update that'll almost certainly guarantee at least a halfway decent review (or at worst a gentle criticism).

    ...I'm sure this has already been pointed out but The Hellfire Club wasn't in the X-Men in the sixties. They didn't appear until either the late 70s or early 80s.

They, in turn, got it from the real Hellfire Club, a group of extra creepy British nobles from the 1700s.

    by DoneProfessionaly

    I'm assuming this will be about what Xavier and Magneto try to do together, whereas the Scott/Jean/Bobby/Beast/Angel team was what Xavier formed after he and Magneto had a falling out, and I'm assuming the team Magneto and Xavier form together is the "First Class" and will subsequently disband at the end of the movie to make way for the official team in the sequel.

    X-3 and Wolverine Origins do not exist in Bryan Singers universe

    by dailysportspages

    He produced and directed X-Men and X-2. <br> He had nothing to do with X-3 and Wolverine Origins. <br> Now he is back producing First Class. <br> And he is reversing the established timelines of characters involved specifically in those movies. <br> <br> Emma Frost was never shown to be a teenager in any of Singers movies, that was in Wolverine Origins. Lets not forget that her backstory has her originally being close to joining Xavier in his first batch of mutants... but for some reason she decides to join the Hellfire Club instead. <br> Angel was never in the Singer movies, so he could realistically still appear as part of the original team. <br> In fact im starting to think that First Class is the name of the movie not because it shows us the adventures of the first class, but shows us everything that lead up to their creation. <br> All of the things that needed to happen for Xavier to form the X-Men. In fact, i doubt we will see anything like the X-Men as a real group of heroes most of this movie. If anything it might just be a scene at the end where we see Xavier finally start the process of creating this First Class of X-Men.<br><br> Remember that a lot of stuff happens in the history of the X-Men franchise before there even is an X-Men team created. It could also be that this "First Class" is composed of mutants who declined to actually join Xaviers institute but helped him early on anyway. <br> We know that Tessa/Sage was in the Hellfire club as a spy for Xavier even before the X-Men existed. She is the one who finds and helps Xavier when his legs are crushed. So it fits perfectly in this story. Hell they probably brought in Azazel to use him in place of Lucifer and have him be the one to cripple Xavier. <br><br> We also know that Beast "in the movieverse" is known to the X-Men team as a former early member who is now retired in academia. Well that can easily be written into this movie as having the large majority of Beasts history and service to Xavier happen prior to the creation of the X-Men. Yes, he is part of the X-Men when they are created, but either due to his age, desire for non violence, or his academic goals... decides to leave the team only after a few missions. <br><br> The same exact thing could be said about Angel, by the time the X-Men movie rolled around Angel has already left the team for whatever reason. <br><br> People forget that even in the comics continuity the team quickly dropped some of the original characters for newer ones.<br><br> <br> If you think of this movie and then think of all the other X related movies that have come out, then the continuity is all out of whack.<br> But if you only use the Singer directed and produced movies as being in continuity... then nothing that has been proposed in First Class is out of line. <br> The black girl chosen for Angel Salvadore/Tempest could probably just be a codename for young Storm. Remember that in Singers universe Storm is someone that Xavier knows for a while. Its also like that in the comic books. Xavier has adventures with her at least twice before she joins the X-Men. Once when she is a little girl and then once as a teen. <br> This could very well be her teen interpretation, which would tie back in with the whole Shadow King rumor that has been going about.<br> Storm could easily be one of the first replacement X-Men to join the team after original members Beast and Angel decide to leave.<br><br> X-1 could easily start someway in the middle of the entire X-Men story. <br> So there is a lot of time for Angel and Beast to leave and Storm to enter the picture.<br><br> Oh and as far as the Wolverine cameo... how bout a little Days of Futures past? <br> At the end (or maybe as a prologue at the start) of the movie have Xavier decide not to go forward with the Massachusetts Institute due to some of the negative effects of what has transpired in the movie. The deaths of some mutants, the advice by some that creating a team of mutant soldiers would not be good for bringing peace, and the actions of Magneto make him question his plans for creating the X-Men, etc... <br> And thats when an old crusty silver haired Wolverine arrives from the future to warn Xavier of the devastation that has happened due to their not being a centralized mutant force trained to deal with what happens in the future. <br> Thats when Xavier decides to create the First Class, using his Mutant allies (Moira, Beast, Sage, Emma Frost, Havox, Darwin, Tempest) and Cerebro to help him find the right recruits... starting with Jean, Scott, Warren, and Bobby... who are joined by Beast who agrees to help lead them in their first few missions only, just long enough for Scott to assume his role as Team Leader.

    So glad he's off Superman...

    by darthwaz1

    Singer just didn't understand Superman whatsoever, and it was sad and awful. For some reason, he really understands the X-men, he nailed it both times. I don't hate X3 either, it's the least of the 3, but way better than spidey 3, it short-changed the fuck outta dark phoenix, but the character was right. In Spidey 3, not only was Venon not right, but his original story wasn't even there.

    This movie sounds worse and worse as more information is leaked....lets do a first class movie-reboot but not include most of the first class, turn one of them into a girl, and change some people into little kids and bring in other obscure characters and make them important....what kind of drugs do you have to be on to make and X-Men movie????

    by hipnosismag

    - He had Angel trying to cut off his wings (in the comics, Angel tried to kill himself when he had his wings cut off) - Xavier and Juggernant weren't brothers - Iceman and Angel weren't X-Men till later - Calisto got turned into the Flash - Blob could make himself fat at will - Pyro was an X-man - Mystique was covered in scales - Nightcrawler was covered in tattoos - Colossus wasn't Russian - They didn't wear their costumes because they thought they looked gay I could go on and on....he made changes just to make them and its insulting to someone who reads the books and is a fan of the source material. I bet if he made Wolverine a 12 year old girl who's power was to bake cakes people would have been pissed, but that's what Singer does, he changes things just to change them. Its insulting.

    Buncha whiners and obnoxious juveniles

    by oisin5199

    If directors and writers do say 'fuck the fanboys,' I wouldn't blame them, because you people sure give them reason to. What a bunch of douchebags on this site. So Singer called, Harry. You bitch when this site repeats scoops. You bitch when we finally get something exclusive. If I was Harry, I would have canceled the talkback function years ago. If you want the comics, read the comics. With the exception of vanity projects like Sin City, you will NEVER see a direct comic adaptation on the screen. Often because it wouldn't work. But more importantly, why would I want to see the exact same story? Where's the suspense? Where's the nuance? Different writers interpret the comic universe in different ways. Why can't the movies be their own entity inspired by the comics. As long as the spirit of the comic is faithfully translated, though, obviously that's going to be highly subjective. But damn, let's see how this works out, first. I give Singer and Co props for doing something different that we've never seen before. A big-budget period superhero film. Oh, and hipnosismag, most of the things you were bitching about were in X-Men 3, which Singer had nothing to do with. And most of you have no idea to make a real script work in a creative way given budget limitations. For the most part, I found Singer's differing interpretations interesting. But like I said, if you like the comics stories, you have thousands of them already. I'm looking forward to this one.

  • Aug. 22, 2010, 12:56 p.m. CST

    not really....

    by hipnosismag

    I am a writer and I know that many of the things they changed in the X-Men movies were changed out of vanity, not to make the story work better...if anything, most of the changes detracted from the story. And also, if you did your homework, you'd know that most of the stuff I talked about was in X-Men 1 & 2, not 3. You say us fanboys cry and whine, and you know what, if you are going to make and X-Men movie, make it about the X-Men. Don't change everything and call it an X-Men film. Its when people become complacent with crap, that the studios will continue with it. Movies like Sin City and Watchmen follow the books closely and they stand out as the best comic films. Even if the filmmakers take the characters on new stories, there is no need to change the characters so drastically just in order to make them yours...they aren't Singer's, they are Marvel Comics....

    The 'First Class' comics were a re-imaging the original class in a modern setting. The original five students. <p> The only reason to steal a 'brand' in the corporate world is because you feel you have an inferior product.

    You are right...it isn't just homophobia. Its heterosexism. The fact that you would never say 'what the fuck...damn straight people trying to leave their mark hiring straight actors all the time' is the very definition of heterosexism.

    by oisin5199

    done my homework? As in, seen the actual movies? Yeah, got that covered, dude. Lessee - Angel, Juggernaut, Callisto, the character you're calling Blob (who wasn't Blob, by the way - it was a completely different character from X-Statix, called Phat - nice homework, buddy), all X-Men 3, not Singer. And changing things for vanity's sake? What's your evidence for that? I don't think you have any idea what you're talking about. <p> Sin City and Watchmen the best comic films? Are you fucking kidding me? First of all, Watchmen doesn't fit your 'faithful adaptation' guidelines at all because of the changed ending. And it was only faithful in that it got the look right. It was clear Snyder didn't really understand what Moore was trying to do, thus it was an empty adaptation. Sin City is what it is - if you like that kind of thing. I didn't think Miller's original was all that to begin with. But yeah, it was a vanity project for Miller (are there any other kind for him?) without mass appeal. And pretty juvenile at that. <p>In the first X-Men, Singer got to the heart of what X-Men was all about. Was I personally happy with all the changes? No. But I thought the changes did serve the story. Especially Rogue. How can you possibly do Rogue straight from the comics, with the whole Carol Danvers thing? That's a whole other property, for one, and it's all about cosmic space stuff and doesn't fit. The Wolvie and Rogue relationship was iconic for all the mentor relationships Logan has had with younger female characters, like Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, and later, Armor. They're both outsiders. I loved the Rogue character in the movies, which was why I was so pissed off about how she was screwed with weak writing in the 3rd one. And Pyro worked because you needed a former student who would go to the darkside. I wish Mystique had been more of an equal with Magneto, rather than just a henchman. I wish Bobby had been more wisecracking, I wish Sabretooth had been more than just a wrestler (or better yet, saved for a film with the Marauders). I wish Halle Berry had been Angela Bassett or Gina Torres. It wasn't perfect, but Singer has done right by the X-franchise overall. And I have some confidence. <p>And I'm not doing any of these stupid 'so and so called jokes.' So yeah, I am better, Tom Welling's stupid talkback name. 'la di da'? Nice comeback, by the way.

    You have a lot of wishes for the films, for someone who thinks bryan singer did x-men right. How long had people been waiting for such a popular franchise to hit the big screen "live". He was chosen, made the movie, we were happy to see them on the screen. We should be happy Fox took the rights for the movie. It was by chance that Bryan Singer was chosen as a director. But, four movies out they are about to make a mistake, by confusing Lex Luthor with Charles Xavier and Roger Moore. I'm not going to mention any of the other mistakes.

That said, Matthew Vaugn is a great visonary so odds are he could do a better job then even i could, and i really look forward to seeing where they go with this.

    Forget timelines and continuity!

    by parissun

    Let's just hope for a great and entertaining movie. If we're honest, comics don't even follow the timelines and continuity. I rencently visited my local comic shop and saw several X-Men titles. I can't even tell you what's going on in the X-Men these days because stories are broken up all over the place. Hell, when I last read the Uncanny X-Men, Emma Frost was a villian, now she's good. Why hold movies to comic time anyway? We suspend belief every time with comics by ignoring the fact that Cyclops and Jean should be in Depends by now. No one complain about comic characters ever aging, so don't complain when movies play with the timeline. Just think of the movies as one of many versions of the comic. You know, I remember a time when I could only dream of getting comic movies when I was kid reading the Avengers, X-Men, Captain America and the Justice League. I will grant you all that many of the comic movies haven't been the greatest and many have outright sucked but I'm glad they are still trying. I'm still waiting for the one comic movie that's going to blow me away but at least Hollywood is paying for them.

I have the first comic in which Rogue appear. I've actually given them all to my son. I have to say that I have dabble in comics since then but haven't collected in forever. Just recently I've gotten back into comics by reading Y The Last Man graphic novels and following The Walking Dead series. If I were to get back into the X-Men I wouldn't even know where to start. But yeah, the last time I saw Emma Frost, she was wearing panties and garters. And redkamel, a Robin movie done right would be very interesting.

    Try putting everything from God Loves, Man Kills; The Dark Phoenix Saga, Days of Future Past and Inferno into a movie. Where do you want them to start? And don't get me started on the characters. Emma Frost looks young as hell in the comics today. In the 80s she looked older than Scott. I dare anyone to explain how I can get caught up with what's going on with the X-Men Universe this day after not reading the series since Inferno. I think the general public would be worse off. They don't care, they just want to see an entertaining movie. All the movie has to do is get the characters right and have a great script. I will concede that not having Scott and Jean in a First Class movie is a hard one to swollow since they are general viewed as the first students. But I'll overlook that as long as it's good. I just can't see this movie being worse than X3 or Wolverine Origins.

    Stomach Pains

    by VoiceOfSaruman

    are what everybody involved in working on or even just seeing this movie should be getting. Caused by fear of yet another crap superhero movie. <br><br> Make a movie about the early years of Xavier and Magneto. Their friendship and its breaking. Maybe a love triangle. Xavier's accident. Magneto's turn to the dark side. That's a movie. Shoving Havok and Banshee and Beast and some version of Angel and Emma Frost and Hellfire Club and Mystique in? Give me a goddamn break. Didn't anyone learn from X3, from Spiderman 3, from Iron Man 2, or Wolverine? Throw too much shit into one movie and nothing really gets developed, no one watching feels invested in the characters, and you get a trainwreck. <br><br> Despite a somewhat lackluster Superman, I'm glad Singer is back involved. But still, this is still the studio that screwed up both the Dark Phoenix story and the character of Wolverine - probably two of the most beloved stories/characters in comic history - should have been slam dunks. And Kick-Ass was fun but there wasn't anything in there that makes me think he's the right guy for this. Hopefully the First Class trailer will give me any confidence, but all this news sounds like the same type of thinking that brought us X3 and Wolverine.

    Every couple of years or so, X-comics will have an event that acts as a 'jumping on point' for new readers, that explains what's going on and who's who without boring veteran readers. Companies like Marvel and DC have been doing it for decades and have it down to an art form. So yeah, it might be a little confusing if you were to go out today and pick up some X-Men comics, but remember, when you got into it in middle school, X-Men had been publishing for about twenty years... and you still managed to take interest.

    Should have been Xavier meeting Magneto while working in a hospital in Israel healing a catatonic Gabby Haller. She doesn't have to be turned into gold by Nazi super-scientists, but maybe brutalized by the explosive terrorist Strucker twins (instead of their father). Throw in Xavier's confrontation with the Shadow King and meeting young Storm, Gabby's schizo son Legion, even some Juggernaut step-brother stuff updated to Viet Nam. That could be an amazing epic story THAT IS TRUE TO THE CHRONOLOGY OF THE CHARACTERS. Much better than warmed over second string 70's members and random horrible Y2K villains thrown in for no reason.

And since SUPERMAN RETURNS was just a mess, I except the same thing from First Class. Besides, no Jean or Scott you know the story is going to be a mess now. The 60s is a great era for the beginning of the X-Men but Singer just doesn’t get me much hope for this movie. Singer can say that he’s copying the comics exactly, but that don’t mean I will believe him. Until some pictures start popping up and a script shows up, no dice Singer. <p> Harry your a fucking tool.

    Routh could easily beat Reeve

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    taas long as the fight took place after 95... actually reeve would probabaly still win. Listen i liked routh as supes, and I don't think he's Gay, but I will admit his superman was made to be far too much of a pretty bo. However I don't blame him for that, that was singer's decision and I commend routh for being able to play it the way he was told to play it. but supes really needs to be more mencaing and confident, In fairness routh's clark Kent was amazing though

    "Ok guys, it's the early days of the X-Men in the next movie...any ideas?" <br><br> "Ummmm how about we make it center on Prof X and Magneto? You know, that divergent path stuff, friends torn apart...you know, like we kept referring to in the last few. But maybe we go back REALLY focus on it, so maybe there's not a million mutants running around the whole time. Like X3. I heard that wasn't well received by the fans." <br><br> "No, we definitely need lots of mutants running and jumping and blowing stuff up and flying. But since it's the early days we could start at the beginning, like Xavier's...."<br><br> "First...class??"<br><br> "BRAVO!"<br><br> "YES!"<br><br> <br><br> "Ok, so who should we put in the first class...hmmmmm" <br><br> "Hmmmmm...."<br><br> "Beast. Definitely Beast."<br><br> "Ok yes....who else..."<br><br> "Hmmmm..."<br> "Ummm..."<br> "Well.....first class...hmmm"<br> "Uhh....I guess ummm..."<br> "Havok?"<br> "YESSSSS!!!!"

    Joss Whedon shoulda done it

    by toisa

    But he's doing the Avengers already. At least he would have given Cyclops the credit he deservers. Singer only treated the character as an extra to give Wolverine the spotlight.

    This sounds good except

    by Rand92

    they should have done this first. I always liked the Hellfire Club, but it doesn't feel right outside of the Dark Phoenix saga the way it was meant to play out. That story had the Hellfire Club, the first appearance of Kitty Pryde, great Wolverine moments, and probably the defining story arc for Jean Grey. I'll go see this and probably even enjoy it, but it just feels wrong to use the Hellfire Club as the villain without using their manipulation of Jean Grey that transformed her into Dark Phoenix.

    by GScribe408

    Why didn't you guys slap the dogshit outta that tool Singer and tell em to start from scratch. This is such garbage! For some reason Singer has it in for Cyclops and this was his time to shine how are you gonna have the first class without the first class members... They have the girl with the flywings named ANGEL in this. You're tellin me she's been in the game longer than Cyclops? And Jean And LOGAN for that matter give me a freakin break!!! there have never been an X-Men movie made just 4 Wolverine movies and now this. The people in charge are destroying this franchise

    poor Mr. Summers

    by BastardHippy

    You know, I was pretty excited when I heard that First Class was being created. To me, the original 5 of X-Men and X-Factor was my favorite lineup. I really liked the FC mini series that came out a couple of years ago. We would finally get a film that would do Scott some justice and show why Scott and Jean are so important to the X-men. I figured, okay we'll at least get 3 young versions of Hank Scott and Jean. I heard about Banshee being cast and figured that it could be a good replacement for Angel. But now, this post has crushed any of my hopes. Yes it could be a very interesting movie, but it sure as hell isn't what I wanted. Hell, I'd take a movie version of X-Men Evolutions at this point. The sad thing is that I think the X-Men Origins: Wolverine version of Scott will be the best version that we'll ever see.

    Jane Goldman, got an analogy for ya

    by deelzbub

    So far, I reallly like what I'm hearing about your vision and feel for the era this movie is set in. <P> but...<P> as far as your selections for the roster of Xavier's first class?<P> The only reason I can think of for including this girl Angel is to "red shirt" her, having her die early on. Only to be replaced by the real Angel, WWIII. And leaving out Scott and Jean?<P> OK, here's your analogy: I'm Hollywood and I'm gonna make a Bible movie.<P> It's about how Noah leads the Israelites out of Egypt, and Jesus' 12 disciples help them escape by building the Great Wall of China across the Red Sea.<P> Sounds like a blockbuster! Think anyone will notice if I "improve" the source material a little? You know, some things just don't translate well to the big screen!
