New X-Men: First Class featurette released by Fox has the cast and crew talking about the latest installment in the X-Men franchise. There’s some new footage not see before, including more action scenes. So spoiler alert time!
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.
X-Men: First Class cinema release is 1st June 2011.
