As I've said multiple times in the past, X-Men is my favorite comic of all time. Ever since I started reading them at Sal's Barbershop on Main Street when I was 8. And over the years movies have done what they could to take my love and compassion for the comic as a whole and try to burn it to the ground.
Now FOX and Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Layercake) are in the tail-end process of finishing the latest in the X-Men movie franchise, 'X-Men: First Class'. A film focusing on the first (not really) team of mutants back when Xavier still had hair and Magneto wasn't Gandalf. The film has no continuity at all with the other films (danke) though. A few days ago a horribly rendered and crudely produced image of the mutants in their uniforms leaked. But according to the studio they did not make that picture, and Matthew Vaughn was furious over the entire ordeal. You can read the whole article at Gamma Squad!
Even though an X-Men team with no Wolverine, Cyclops, Gambit, or Storm does lack appeal for non-nerd audiences, I am kind of excited for it. Despite being filled with doubt when I first heard about the film. And even if it doesn't go over well, you still get to see January Jones in skin tight white leather.
Oh and Kevin Bacon is in it too.
Expect a few sketches and such soon before things at school start getting out of hand.
