X-Men First Class

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Ever since they announced that James McAvoy was going to play the role of the young Prof. Charles X. Xavier while Michael Fassbender will play the young Magneto in the new X-men movie, for once I became excited again and hopeful with the X-Men movie franchise.

I hope that the plot will do justice to the acting skills of these two actors who I consider to be very gifted. James McAvoy I first saw in Band of Brothers but was impressed by his talent in the Children of Dune tv series. Michael Fassbender is of course famous from the 300 movie, having played Stelios. Aside from that I also liked his portrayal of Lt. Archie Hicox in Inglourious Basterds.

X-Men First Class will be the fourth installment of the X-Men franchise of movies. This time it will focus on the origins of Professor X and Magneto, close friends who often times found themselves on opposite poles. Movie is scheduled to come out on June 3 of this year.

I wasn't really impressed with the X-Men string of movies, save for the second one (X2).
