06.05.2011 – The dark horse of the comic book movies of 2011, X-Men: First Class directed by Matthew Vaughn held the hopes and dreams of X-Men fans in it's hands. Would we be wooed by the retro-1960s tale of the X-Men's first days? Would this be able to make us forget about the recent abominations of X-Men movies since X2? Ron, Josh and Conor gather to answer with a unified and resounding, YES! So much so that Ron possibly may explode from excitement as Josh and Conor watch.
The prequel to Fox's X-Men trilogy finds a young Charles Xavier and Eric Lehnsherr bringing together the first class of mutants in the 1960s amidst the Cuban Missile Crisis! Wild, right? Who knew we would ever get this movie and that it would be directed by the supremely talented Matthew Vaughn.
It's been a long, dark, and cold road for fans of the X-Men movies with the less said about X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine the better. In fact, let's just pretend they never happened!
The prequel to Fox's two X-Men films finds a young Charles Xavier and Eric Lehnsherr bringing together the first class of mutants in the 1960s amidst the Cuban Missile Crisis! Wild, right? Who knew we would ever get this movie and that it would be directed by the supremely talented Matthew Vaughn.
We're all excited here at iFanboy HQ! In a summer chock full of comic book movies this is one that everyone is really looking forward to! Let's just hope that this one doesn't nearly kill Ron like X-Men: The Las– wait! Damn! That never happened!
Later this afternoon you'll be able to read Paul's review of the movie.
Are you going to see X-Men: First Class? Of course you are! So let's talk about it!
