Check out the photos (above) of Michael Fassbender as Magneto and James McAvoy as Professor X in Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class!

We had gotten a glimpse of the full cast earlier this week, but we're pumped to get a more substantial look at these two key characters!

We'll miss Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, but hey! They've gone on to bigger and better things, like The Hobbit and…doing voices on Family Guy (sorry Patrick!)

We like what we're seeing A LOT! Next, we'll look forward to some images of January Jones as a totally true-to-her-comic-book-character, sluttastic Emma Frost!

HAWT!

Has The X-Men: First Class Villain Been Revealed?

x men first class villain may have been revealed

Back in August, we announced some exciting details on the plot of X-Men: First Class!

Now, it looks like the X-Men MAY have their villain!

Here's a hint at the bad guy from a plot summary for the film:

"Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and 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. Not arch-enemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men."

Armageddon could def be the villain, as there have been two characters in the Marvel Universe that have gone by that name. They are…

- An artificially-created offspring of Apocalypse

- Ruler of alien "Troyjan empire"/antagonist for The Hulk

The name Armageddon could, of course, also refer to the Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck movie an event that could potentially end the world…if the X-Men don't stop it.

Hopefully we'll learn more soon. We're just excited to hear updates! We're pumped for this one!

What do U think Armageddon refers to here? Offspring? Alien Emperor? End Of The World? Liv Tyler flick?

Watch Yourself, Patrick Stewart! James McAvoy's Ready To Steal Your X-Men Thunder!

Filed under: Film FlickersJames McAvoy

If you are a fan of X-Men, you undoubtedly believe that Patrick Stewart was an inspired choice to play Professor Charles Xavier in the original movies. But now that things are taking a turn towards the past, James McAvoy is stepping in to play a younger and seksier version of the Professor.

And he can't wait to get started! (Us too!)

While at the Toronto Film Festival, James was asked what fans can expect from his portrayal of the infamous Professor X. For starters, James admits that he won't be bald or paralyzed, but that both trademark attributes of the character will be explained. That seems fine by James, as he is looking forward to portraying the journey most of all. He explains:

"I think the fun about these films, when you go back and you either reboot or do a prequel, is you get to see how people became who they are. That means that you have to do them differently and by the end of the movie you have to do them the same way. The interesting journey is what happens to them, what changes them, what makes them evolve — not just mutate, but emotionally and psychologically evolve…I would suggest by the end of the movie and the start of the next movie, it'll be more like what Patrick does."

The next movie? Are you all for a sequel to the prequel, James! That would be pretty sweet!

We're really looking forward to see thing all come together.

How about U?

Tom Cruise To Do A Horror Movie?

jamestome.jpg

Tom Cruise isn't really known for acting in horror movies. Do we really want him to start now?

Guillermo Del Toro, the man who famously bailed on The Hobbit movie, is thinking of casting Cruise as the lead in his 3-D feature film adapation of H.P. Lovecraft’s classic horror novella At The Mountains of Madness.

The drama cometh! Universal Studios, the production company backing Del Toro’s project, is interested in James McAvoy as the lead role, while Guillermo would prefer Tom Cruise.

Both actors have high profile projects on the horizon, which could make them solid, pertinent draws for this movie. Cruise will be starring in Mission: Impossible 4, while McAvoy will play a young Professor X in X-Men: First Class.

Del Toro has done some wonderful work and he’s an extremely talented filmmaker, but we’re not sure if we can take his side on this one.

Neither Cruise nor McAvoy have backgrounds in horror, but McAvoy is a young, ambitious actor who we’re just getting to know, and Tom Cruise has kind of overstayed his welcome.

Would U prefer to see Cruise or McAvoy in Del Toro’s new horror film?

Exciting Details On The Plot Of X-Men: First Class!

Filed under: Film Flickers

xmen-first-class-500x343jb.jpg

Oh man. This just keeps sounding better and better.

Now that the entire cast has pretty much been announced, more details about the plot of X-Men: First Class are emerging, and it sounds effing AWESOME!

We're hearing that the film takes place in 1960's reality where there is James Bond-esque 'retro-future technology,' with John F. Kennedy as President and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X strongly featured in the backdrop.

The story will focus on Magneto and Professor X's friendship and its subsequent deterioration, and Xavier will neither be bald nor wheel-chair bound - although it will explain how that happens! We'll also get to see costumes that are inspired more from the old comics than the recent films!

Although a young Cyclops and Jean Grey will not appear, we've got it confirmed that Kevin Bacon will be portraying the villainous Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones WILL be The Hellfire Club's White Queen, Emma Frost!

Amazing!

It definitely sounds like these guys know what they're doing this time around!

We can't wait to see it! Exciting exciting!

Thoughts??

Patrick Stewart Has Been Knighted!

ap100602013979jb.jpg

What an honor!

Professor X Patrick Stewart now gets to make everyone call him Sir, even if they don't want to, because he has been officially knighted by Queen Elizabeth II!

He says:

"It was an unlooked-for honor but as I grew up as a child, falling in love with the theatre and Shakespeare, my heroes were Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Alec Guinness. The knights of the theater represented to me not only the pinnacle of the profession but the esteem in which the profession was held. And now to find myself, to my astonishment, in that company is the grandest thing that has professionally happened to me."

Congratulations are certainly in order for you, Sir!
