X-Men: First Class

posted by GW Dan

Matthew Vaughn is set to direct X-Men: First Class and the cast is shaping up nicely. For those of you who don’t know Vaughn’s work he is the director of Kick-Ass, Stardust, and Layer Cake. I haven’t seen Stardust, time to update Netflix, but Layer Cake and Kick-Ass were superb. He was originally signed to direct X-Men 3 but dropped out and was replaced by Brett Ratner. Now, I like the X-Men films, not love them. I thought they were ok. But this has me excited. Young mutants dealing with their new powers and forging continuity free relationships is what this franchise needs. Wolverine: Origins was not a step in the right direction and it is time to reboot. Hopefully Fox leaves Vaughn alone enough to turn in a fine piece of summer action. The cast so far includes

James McAvoy – Professor X

Michael Fassbender – Magneto

Benjamin Walker – Beast

Amber Heard – Mystique (rumored)

Alice Eve – Emma Frost (rumored)

Rosamund Pike – Moira McTaggert (rumored)

All fine choices so far. Let’s hope these stick and we get a truly good film.
