X-Men: First Class, following the classic Marvel
mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before
Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto,
they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time.
Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working
together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the
greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between
them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and
Professor X's X-Men.
X-Men: The Last Stand made $459
million back in 2006 and the recent box-office success of
Wolverine it is unsurprising that Fox
is going to cash in some more with spin-offs like this one!
