“X-Men” scans give mighty look at Marvel mutants
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We are just a few weeks away from the start of the summer film season, which kicks off on May 6 with Paramount’s introduction to the Marvel superhero, “Thor.”
Shortly after that, however, another Marvel team of heroes will receive a brand new introduction as 20tht Century Fox tries to reboot its “X-Men” franchise with an origin story set around pre-established characters Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Will it work? I certainly trust in director Matthew Vaughn, who helmed “Kick-Ass” and the underrated “Stardust.”
This morning, Total Film (courtesy of ComingSoon) has an in-depth feature on the film with scans of the young mutants in period garb. Check it out here.
We’ve also got the latest “First Class” trailer posted below.
Vaughn has a great cast, including McAvoy, Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence, Oliver Platt and Zoe Kravitz. It opens everywhere on June 3.
