    Read on...it confirms a LOT. A bit spoilery...

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand Cyclops gets the shaft yet again!

    I strongly believe that Singer hates the character. Either way, I'm done with caring about this film.

    Well, placing this film in the 60s I think is a brilliant idea...very retro. The question is: Does the entire film take place in that time period? If so, it does far-outpace the timeline of what we saw in X1. Jean, Scott and Storm had to have been born in the very late 60s'/early 70's to fit the roles played by Famke, James and Halle. Which means...no Jean, Scott or Storm in "First Class."

    I find it strange though that Beast is in this...how old is he by X3? Was he literally Kelsey Grammar's age? LOL

    It's really risky that their releasing an X-Men film with none of the most known characters in the jam packed 2011

    Love all these ideas. I love the fact it's in the 60's and has an international James Bond feel to it. This is the first comic book film to do that and that's awesome.

    I can do without Scott and Jean I guess. Let's just hope for sequels.

    Sounds great. So Bacon is indeed playing Shaw. Looking forward to First Class more than ever.

    Yeah, I don't think they or we should be pinpointing the exact ages of these characters. Just rounded. Plus you know, Beast has blue fur so who's gonna notice?

    So Emma WASN'T 20-something years old in Wolverine afterall? It's cool that they're trying to pave the way for their own dream movie, but borrowing characters from other films makes things messy. I know they were only cameos, but Banshee and Emma were both in XO. My head's just buzzing now.. no bald crippled Xavier? Wah?

    I'm disappointed that we probably won't see Jean and Scott, but deep down I'm thinking they made the right decision. As hard as it is to admit it. :csad:

    They're obviously leaving Jean, Cyclops and Storm for a sequel. Fox want a trilogy so they won't be putting all the characters in at once.

    That's the equivalent as telling your girlfriend: I promise I won't c** inside

    You know it's a lie, she knows it a lie, but you still say it anyway!

    Charles Xavier with hair? He lost it in high school due to his mutation. Fail

    Havok is Scott's younger brother. Fail

    Emma Frost is 20-something in Wolverine (which takes place in the 70s) and 30-something in the 60s. Fail

    They can't even create a movie that makes sense withing their own continuity.. forget about the comics one.

    I said to my brothers that I think X:FC will be the best movie quality wise but not make the most money. All this kind of confirms that for me.

    I'm excited and scared to see this now.

    If Singer didn't make it(Wolverine and X3), don't worry about.

    This may be the best X-Men film yet.

    Only downside is that the second class of Scott and Jean will be in the 80s. Scott in a Members Only jacket? Ew

    Again, semantics, but...my understanding was that the character thought to be a version of Emma Frost in Wolverine wasn't actually formally named in the credits -- am I correct? (I don't have a copy to reference.) Though they did kind of blow it by naming/using Scott Summers within the film...

    Either way, I sense that Singer and Vaughn here are playing more freely with X-Men film contunity...and kindly choosing not to incorporate certain elements of the rather undesirable third film or Wolverine. Also -- and this is important -- Fox is apparently allowing them to do so. Munch on that for a bit.

    Also, read Harry's words via Singer: he describes the film as a "new beginning" to the universe -- i.e. if the movie works, they can and should be able to move freely creatively from here on forward.

    As I've said already, I'm rather intrigued by what Singer and Vaughn seem to be cooking up...
