Well, fuck. We’ve been knocking this one around for ages, and finally we have the first trailer for X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust). Skepticism has abounded — to0 many characters, etc., etc. And the trailer…
… Well, it fucking works.
There’s a hell of a lot to process in there. Here’s what I noticed at first glance:
There’s a lot more in there. And a lot more that they didn’t show — Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Banshee, Darwin, AzazeI. I have to say that while it’s early, while it’s only 90 seconds of footage, while there’s much left to be seen… despite all of that, I’ll admit it — based on the trailer and the trailer only? I’m fucking sold.
