X-Meh: Class Picture

January 19, 2011

So an image of the cast of the upcoming X-Men: First Class has leaked, and the nerdverse has responded with a resounding “Meh.”

Left to right, we’ve got Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Dr. Moira McTaggart (Rose Byrne), Emma Frost (January Jones), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvadore (Zoe Kravitz), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), and Professor X (James McAvoy).

Me, I’m just… confused. And not the intrigued kind of confused, either. Havok but no Cyke? Is Angel supposed to be a girl version of the Angel we know? Where is Kevin Bacon as Sebastien Shaw? Why is Azazel there? Does this fit anywhere into the previous films’ continuity?

Remember back when I said I was eager to see a period superhero movie? While this one is set in the 60’s… eh… not as excited.

UPDATE: MTV News is reporting that Fox says it is not an authorized image from the X-Men: First Class movie.Hm. Whattya suppose THAT means?

    Yeah… more than “meh”, double meh! More in the line of “I couldn’t care less” and “I didn’t get the point”. That movie will be a pathetic failure IMHO.

    I’ve gone the other way past “meh” and into annoyed. After the disaster that was X-Men 3 (which I generally pretend simply doesn’t exist) I was really hoping these guys were going to get something right. But I’m sorry, what!? The original X-Men were Xavier, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Iceman, and Angel. And even in the movie-verse, Xavier says in the first movie that Cyclops and Jean Grey were two of his first students. So what the heck is this? If you ask me if I’ll go see this now, the answer is a resounding ”NO.”
