Along with Vaughn talking about the First Class sequel, a new clip from the film has debuted online, featuring the first meeting between Charles Xavier and Mystique. In addition to the new clip, we have several video interviews with the cast and director of X-Men: First Class, plus a new "sneak-peek" featurette for the film. That scene raised a lot of questions - and a little ire, since it's not part of X-Men comic lore. The clip we have today fleshes out the scene in which young Charles and young Mystique meet, and certainly addresses that question of Mystique and aging only watch if you want to know :. Matthew Vaughn's attention to details such as these Mystique and aging were noted in a number of the X-Men: First Class early reviews that appeared online recently. It's also good to see that he isn't wasting time on these sorts of details, but is rather incorporating them into the film with a matter-of-factness that really establishes the world of X-Men, strange mutant powers and all. As good as Singer's films were, one thing that always felt slightly off was the way that they treated every use of mutant power as a "big deal" effects moment.

The film co-stars Rose Byrne , January Jones , and Oliver Platt , and also introduces Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence , who, like McAvoy and Fassbender, reimagine popular characters from the franchise Beast and Mystique already established in the original trilogy. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner first thought of a prequel based on the young X-Men during the production of X2 ; producer Simon Kinberg later suggested to 20th Century Fox an adaptation of the comic series X-Men: First Class , although the film does not follow the comic closely. Singer, who had directed both X-Men and X2 , became involved with the project in , but he could only produce and co-write First Class due to his work on other projects. Vaughn, who was previously attached to both X-Men: The Last Stand and Thor , became the director, and also wrote the final script with his writing partner Jane Goldman. First Class replaced a Magneto prequel film that had been in development, but had entered development hell ; the Writers Guild of America arbitration gave a story credit to Magneto writer Sheldon Turner.
Set in the era before Professor Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr became mortal enemies as Professor X and Magneto, respectively, director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class follows the two former allies as they lead a powerful team of mutants on a mission to save the planet from nuclear annihilation. Charles James McAvoy and Erik Michael Fassbender were just young men when it began to appear as if the world was careening toward destruction. As the Doomsday Clock ticks faster toward midnight, the time comes to take action. Realizing they could use their unique powers to avert a global thermonuclear war during the Bay of Pigs crisis, the two powerful mutants launch an intense recruitment campaign with the support of Dr. In the process of saving humanity, however, Charles and Erik clash, setting the stage for Professor X to lead the X-Men in the fight for good as Magneto and the Brotherhood spread chaos and destruction on a global scale.
