Typical Hollywood cliche. The more I learned now the more I will not pay to see this. Yeah it looks good but reading these spoilers just reminded me of why I was gonna not gonna give fox a dime of my money. I'll see it like I said but I'll pay for another flick and go in Xmen.

Don't worry about it. This film appears to be a complete re-write of the comics and all previous films. Just look at it as a stand alone film in its own seperate universe.

Either that or Scott's Alex's very, very, very much younger baby brother. But hey, don't ask me. I'm my own grandpa.

Are there any references to Harry Leland or Donald Pierce?

My friend who've seen this said he liked it but he said the casting was off. He said Bacon should have been Donald Pierce, Fassbender should have been Xavier, McCavoy should have been Banshee with someone used to playing more intense roles a la Paul Bettani playing Magneto. His thinking was McCavoy was too calm and reflective to be a player like Xavier. But had the personality to be the colleague and confident as Banshee is to Xavier in the comics. While he felt Fassbender was the best in the movie, it did not sold him on him being this sinister, as the guy who will turn World conqueror but sold him on Fass being the guy having the ambition to form a big organization.

Take that as you will.

Just watched it! Awesome. Second best X-Men movie (after X1). My only problem is Xavier's lack of arguments against the fear of oppression

Then, Xavier (in his famous wheelchair) & Moira talk about his new students & how he wants to protect them & etc. He kisses Moira and erases all of her memories, regarding the X-Men. Magneto frees Emma Frost in the very end & his outfit is totally a purple/red mix of Jim Lee's version of the costume & some resemblance to the original trilogy one.
Is Magneto's costume really purple and red? The trailer made it look black and red.

Question: They didn't kill any of the mutants? I was expecting Riptide, Azazel and Angel Salvadore to be killed off.

I think the point is that he knows that she could be forced to reveal the information, so no matter how much she is interrogated, they will be safe. But she is CIA, so I guess he can't completely trust her

I'm pretty sure the scene went something like she saying their secret will be safe, Charles says something like "I know", and he gaves her the memory kiss

1) What about music? Vaughn used the coolest songs for Kick-Ass, so I hope he does the same in XMTFC
2) How old is Mystique? Several reviewers described her as a teenager, but isn't she supposed to be the same age as Charles? Also, when do we first see her in her naked blue form?
Thanks!

so, what are some ways Magneto uses his powers?

does he fly, shoot bolts of electromagnetic/ionic energy, etc.?

or is it just mainly manipulating metal?

are there hints/references to just how powerful Magneto's powers can be?

How does Magneto kills Shaw, Shaw's ability makes it very hard for him to be killed

I think you have accept that Xavier is a naive but well-intentioned idealist, an optimist in the extreme. He comes from a privileged background and has never had to struggle.

I think oppression has to come later, as a result of events in First Class.

Well, it was quite obvious from the start that you had no intention of supporting this film...

I am not in the habit of sharing spoilers but I will contribute generally to this by saying:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Magneto has to learn how to harness his powers; it's then that he seems to become more powerful. There are no bolts of energy, but there is levitation of himself (and another person at one point) and also projecting a wall of invisible magnetic force that flings people away. We don't see any visible energy effects like forcefield bubbles or blasts, which is in keeping with the previous films. But, as the fanboys would say, he is totally badass.
