Trailer Time: X-men First Class, starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender

Well the wait is finally over. 20th Century Fox have released the first trailer for Matthew Vaughn's X-men: First Class, telling the origins of the war for mutant supremacy between Professor Charles Xavier(James McAvoy) and Magneto(Michael Fassbender). The film goes back to the days before the two became enemies and were merely friends with a dream to secure the future of their race.  Check out the trailer for X-men: First Class below...

So I've watched it a few times now, and I like the way the words of John F. Kennedy are weaved throughout. In the comics, Xavier and Kennedy are presented as being very similar figures, transformative to the entire country in a number of ways. I also dug how clips from the later films are used to show their progression into the characters we're familiar with. Other than that, there's not a lot of meat to it, although the bit with Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw was inspired stuff. The old school Blackbird fighter jet was pretty slick, also. Basically, I hope this trailer puts some of the critics to bed. It actually looks like it could be a damn good movie and a welcome addition to the X-men family of flicks. It's still the superhero movie I'm most looking forward to.

X-men: First Class is set to hit theaters on June 3rd 2011!
