X-Men: First Class

Twentieth Century Fox has closed a deal with James McAvoy (the kid from Wanted) to star as Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn.

X-Men: First Class begins production this summer for a June 3, 2011 release. Bryan Singer, who conceived the story for "First Class" and directed the original X-Men and its sequel X2, is producing along with Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.

Additional casting is underway and will be announced shortly.

X-Men: First Class, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. 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.

I hope this is going to be better than the Wolverine Origins film which I personally found very disappointing.

I don't understand the current obsession with re-imagining and reinventing superhero films that were made in the last ten years like they are currently doing with Spiderman. "So theres this nerdy guy called Peter Parker who gets bitten by a radioactive spider and he starts to develop spider like super powers!", yes we know, we have already been told this story. Are they so desperate for ideas they are now reduced to re-telling stories they have already told us?

i still don't understand that one. they're going back to High School with the story. to get more "kids" involved. Hello? that's what the cartoon is for. rebooting a multi-billion dollar franchise, whose last movie is less that 3 years old... just don't get it.

rebooting Ghost Rider is a GREAT idea. no Nick Cage. any time he gets involved in the production of a film it is complete crap. and the stupid thing is, Cage is one of the most famous comic book nerds. when he married Elvis' daughter, Lisa-Marie, she convinced him to sell the bulk of his collection: several hundred-thousand worth.

There are plenty of big action scenes throughout but it's the first half of the film that really impresses, The leading cast do a brilliant job in giving you a sense of their conflict with ingredients such as prejudice and ignorance. There was just so much joy to be had in this film that I feel rather overwhelmed by it as I was not expecting a superhero movie with this kind character depth.
