This coming June, we’ll be treated to the latest X-Men movie, titled “X-Men First Class“. The story is a prequel to what we’ve seen so far and the photo above is your first look at the new cast. Here is the synopsis of the film:
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
Contrary to the previous X-Men films, this one was filmed mostly in the UK and some parts of the US, as opposed to mostly Canada as in the past. Also, be sure to add this film to your “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” tool belt, as he also stars in the film as Sebastian Shaw, the antagonist of the movie. Fox envisions this film to be the first in a trilogy. I’m sure the new cast are crossing their fingers!
From left to right in the header photo above, here is the cast: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier.
