Before It Was a Movie, ‘X-Men: First Class’ Was a Trailer

By  · Published on February 10th, 2011

One of the franchises that started the massive superhero/comic book movie trend that’s lived past a decade at this point, X-Men has proven itself as a fan favorite just as strong as the dedication to its hand drawn form.

Now, it gets the ultimate reboot by going back in time to an age where Magneto was Erik, Professor X was Charles and the world was on the brink of the next evolution of man.

It’s X-Men: First Class. Check out the trailer for yourself:

Peace was never an option. Damn. This looks great.

The trailer has a lot to it – action, a little romance, a lot of bromance that looks like it’ll turn sour (since we know it will). Plus, the visuals are really strong. I also didn’t expect the Red Scare elements.

X-Men: First Class is directed by Matthew Vaughn and hits theaters June 3rd, 2011.
