Yesterday, I sat around hitting F5 during my JoBlo.com shift to be able to be the first person on the planet to post the X-Men: First Class trailer. Sadly, I didn’t get to write about it there as Fox decided to sit on their hands for about three hours, but I thought we could discuss it here today.
I’m curious to see what you guys thought of it, as I have mixed feelings myself.
Fassbender Magneto looks like a total badass.
The retro look could makes the series fresh again.
January Jones makes anything better.
Still too many mutants, that’s been the main problem with all the movies.
Not even the right mutants, this is the “first class” yet there’s no Cyclops, Angel, Iceman or Jean Grey. What the hell?
That music in the background. Pretty sure I could play that one-chord track.
Mystique went from Rebecca Romijn-Stamos to total fug.
The CGI in general, but especially during the transformations of Mystique, Emma Frost and Beast.
Yellow costumes seem good in theory, not as much in practice.
I’m skeptical, and I don’t think that was a very well-put together trailer despite it’s most cool visuals, but I’ll definitely be seeing it however it ends up being.
What do you think?
