Has it been confirmed yet on whether or not X-men:First Class is a prequel or a reboot? I keep seeing both, and it's a bit confusing. I'm just wondering if we'll see Cyclops, Jean Grey and the rest of the gang set in this timeline. I sure hope so.

It definitely goes out of it's way to set up/explain certain things that show up in the original movies, but it also steps on some continuity toes, so to speak. But overall, it seems to be intended as a prequel.
Basically, the biggest continuity issues:
1. In First Class, Cerebro is constructed by the CIA and Hank McCoy and while it gets destroyed, it doesn't get rebuilt in the film, and Magneto abandons Charles and forms the Brotherhood by the end of the film. In X-Men 2 (and I think 1) it's explicitly stated that Magneto helped to construct Cerebro and that fact is integral to the plot of #2
2. Emma Frost is an adult in 1962 in First Class, but is a teenager in Origins: Wolverine which takes place in.. what.. 15 years before the first X-Men movie? So 1985? Maybe she ages backwards :P
3. The Magneto/Professor X split happens in the end of First Class, yet they are seen working together in the flashback in the beginning of X-Men 3 when they visit Jean Gray as a child.
4. Similarly, Professor X is paralyzed at the end of First Class, yet is seen walking in both the X-Men 3 flashback, as well as his cameo in Origins: Wolverine.
5. Beast starts off human-looking in First Class and becomes his blue furry self over the course in the film, yet in X-Men 2 he has a cameo where he is human.
6. Professor X doesn't really seem to be sure how Magneto doesn't show up on a Cerebro scan but he sees Erik take and use Shaw's helmet in First Class, and knows exactly what it does. (Admittedly, this one is more a nitpick)
I think that was about it.

God I really am excited for this film. I shouldn't be, I know, but I keep hearing promises from "The Industry" that it'll be better than the second and that they know just how bad the second one was. Plus Nascar Wreckers. And what seems like a Transformers-centric plot, finally. But honestly, any big-budget, 2 hour film made out of a 22 minute toy ad is gonna be at least alright to me.

Actually just watched Transformers 2 for the first time tonight
It was worse than I thought it would be, because I was lead to believe the fights were better than the first onethey were not better
Marvel Studios printed up 100 copies of a special poster just for the cast and crew of “Captain America: The First Avenger” and we’ll be giving away five of them on Sunday at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood. The retro-minded poster (and a nod to the first issue of the comic book) was created by the talented Paolo Rivera, whose many credits include covers for ”Fantastic Four,” “Spectacular Spider-Man” and “X-Men: Unlimited.” I’m thinking that one of those posters might go to the person in audience with the best Marvel Universe costume.

I think Zola is kind of like Hector Hammond, in that any attempt at translating the look to live action is going to look really fucking stupid no matter what.
