Wow! She looks perfect! I hope they can realize her powers on screen, while making them look worthwhile.

If at any point there is a bullet time Jubilee fireworks shot, the movie wins at life. Also if at any point they play the 90s Ron Wasserman X-Men theme.

At which point my heart would explode and I would die happily

When the doors opened at the end, I got a few chills.

Shit, me too. Looks pretty good. I thought it was cool when Apocalypse was growing too.

I'm glad that Stewart and McKellan aren't involved. I'd prefer they focus on the younger cast as that's more interesting anyway.

That looks beautiful, but am I missing something? Was it announced that Wolverine wouldn't be in this? I kind of assumed he was.

I love the fact that Jennifer Lawrence has become the face of the X-Men over Hugh Jackman.

Isn't Mystique supposed to be a villain though?

Honestly I've grown to really hate that. Her character's inclusion in First Class was bizarre, she's not well cast, brings very little to the role and constantly refuses to be blue. It's Halle Berry all over again.

As mentioned in my various shows with Ian, I actually prefer the old school Rebecca Romijn version because start to end there's a purity of vision about what the concept and character are, even in X-men 3. Visually the big motifs in the first movies were Wolverines claws and Mystiques awesome design, and so once they came to First Class they retroactively tried to make her a bigger deal than she should have been, lending her this cooked up history with Xavier that never really fit. I'd be fine with a young her showing up in this revised timeline and even showing the history of how she became what she did but she should be inexorably on the path to villainy. Instead she just gets more and more heroic because Mystique has become the iconic character of the franchise and its for all the wrong reasons. In fact the casting of an actress who has become a huge name has an a retroactive Halle Berry effect, boosting a character based on the profile of the person playing them rather than what serves the story.
