iFanboy Video Podcast
All eyes fall on the X-Men this week as the next big comic book movie release is X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn (KICK-ASS). To get psyched up for the movie, the guys at iFanboy are diving deep into the X-Men lore. First touching upon the great series of the same name as the movie, X-Men: First Class by Jeff Parker and Roger Cruz, even though it really has nothing to do with the movie.
The movie itself is a prequel of sorts, going back to 1963 and telling the story of the birth of the X-Men. So in honor of that, we take a look at the X-Men in the 1960s, when the titles was pretty much a failure, despite the work of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Roy Thomas and Neal Adams, only to be revitalized in the 1970s after years of reprints.
We also discuss the movie and what you should look out for and the numerous things the movie that they got right (looks like there's many) and what they got wrong (not so much). Even Josh is excited for the movie's release mainly due to the historical signifigance and the retro feel.
So sit back, put on your Sebastian Shaw ascot and get ready to enjoy some good, retro X-Men fun!
