Wikipedia wrote:
X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

LET'S MEET THE KIDS!

Xavier-1.jpgCharlesNooo-1.jpgProfessor-Xavier-X-Men-The-Last-Stand-professor-charles-francis-xavier-20006730-1280-720-1.jpg

James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier. He leads the X-Men! Patrick Stewart played him in the previous films and did a damn good job.
michael-fassbender-magneto-1.jpg75994-20209-magneto_super-1.jpgxm_008_IanMcKellen-1.jpg

Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto. He can manipulate magnetic fields! Ian McKellen played him in the previous films and was fantastic. Let's hope that helmet doesn't look that terrible in the movie!
X-Men-First-Class-Trailer-Kevin-Bacon-1.jpgSHAW-1.jpg

Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw. He leads the Hellfire Club and has mutant powers, but it's not clear if they're the same as in the comics!
January_Jones_as_Emma_Frost-1.jpgastonishing_x-men_by_john_cassaday-1.jpgx-men-origins-wolverine-cyclops-emma-frost-1.jpg

January Jones as Emma Frost. She's telepathic and can turn into a diamond! She was also in X-Men Origins: Wolverine but we don't talk about that.
X-Men-First-Class-Trailer-17-Rose-Byrne-1.jpg101814-130520-moira-mactaggert_large-1.jpgX-Men_The_Last_Stand_-_Moira_MacTaggert_Earth-10005_0001-1.jpg

Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert. She works for the CIA and isn't Scottish anymore! She was also in X-Men: The Last Stand as a scientific authority on mutants, but I guess we can forget about that!
nicholas-hoult-beast--300-75-1.jpgbeast-1-50k-1.jpgbeast5-1.jpg

Nicholas Hoult as Dr. Henry "Hank" McCoy / Beast. He's really smart and turns into a blue cat-ape! Dr. Frasier Crane played him in X-Men: The Last Stand like a boss.
MystiqueXClass-1.jpgMystique-1.jpgxmen3publl-1.jpg

Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme / Mystique. She's a shape-shifter and possibly has kung-fu skills! Rebecca Romign-Stamos played her in the previous films and was surprisingly good.
X-Men-First-Class-Trailer-12-Angel-1.jpgAngel-1.jpg

Zoë Kravitz as Angel Salvadore. She can fly and... do bug stuff maybe? Hopefully she'll be more entertaining/useful than Grant Morrision's take on the character!
banshee-x-men-1.jpg29_banshee-1.jpg

Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy / Banshee. He can fly and scream really loud! He's also not Irish anymore for some reason!
xmenfirstclass_1-1.jpghavok2-1.jpg

Lucas Till as Alex Summers / Havok. He can hula-hoop energy off his body and absorb it too! He's also Cyclops' brother and that may come up in the sequels. Oh and he looks like a bitch.
X-Men-First-Class-Trailer-16-Edi-Gathegi-1.jpgdarwin-1.jpg

Edi Gathegi as Armando Muñoz / Darwin. He has the power of "reactive evolution" and that could be awesome!
X-Men-First-Class-Trailer-34-Azazel-1.jpgazazel-1.jpg

Jason Flemyng as Azazel. He can teleport and use a sword! He also might be Nightcrawler's father, but that will never come up in the films.
article-1297419384449-0D21FD54000005DC-329621_636x255.jpg
HOLY SHIT

So yeah this movie looks pretty good! I hope Matthew Vaughn doesn't kill himself trying to finish it in time. Let's talk about those stinkin' mutants!

    I can't decide how I feel about this movie

    on the one hand, x-men

    on the other hand, I thought stewart and McKellan hit the Xavier/Magneto bit pretty much perfectly in the previous x-men movies and I'm not sure this one does as well

    Wanting money doesn't surprise me.

    Just that they are choosing to continue on with the films that have already been made rather than reboot them. Like Ghostrider, Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man, and the planned reboot of Batman.

    I am of the opinion that X3 was so bad that the whole franchise needs to be nuked from orbit and something new built from the ashes


    it's the only way to be sure.
