    Hi, thought this would be quiet cool to have, discuss and so forth... This is the first x-men film to be shot mostly in the UK, so i thought Lets discuss locations and possible sets that could appear in x-men first class, whilst also reporting news and photos of filming on sets.

    But intil they start filming, where do people feel we will see in this movie. I have a few ideas.

    I have a theory, see London doesnt really have much to do with Xaviers life growing up. And i dont think they will film in westchester or the familiar hartley castle that we saw in the previous films.

    So i figure we might see alot of filming done in Oxford

    firstly Charles Xaviers history sees him studying at Oxford University. Then if you look at Oxfordshire there is lots of buildings similar to that of Hatley Castle, so i figure they might film around that area for alot of external shots... but think of this as well Rosamund Pike studied at Wadham college in Oxford. And she is playing Moria McTaggart who met Charles Xavier in Oxford University. it would just make sense.

    So here is my ideas for filming

    This is Oxford University

    Mapledurham House somewhere in Oxford... Looks very similar to Xaviers Mansion... although red bricked and hartley castle was white or gray bricked in the comics the mansion was rebuilt several times.

    Just looking around, if Muir island was 50 miles off the northern coastline of scottland, this could possibly be a contender for the island...

    This picture reminds me of the episode of x-men animated when rogue goes to find the cure to mutation...

    I guess if they use a different facade for the mansion, they could always destroy it and built it bigger and better. Go the Batman Begins route and reinforce the lower levels, as well as fortify the school in general and provide the secret passages we saw in X2.

    Thats actually quiet a good idea.

    I mean, the x-mansion hasnt been destroyed in any of the movies as of yet but in the comics it has happened more than once.

    Essential the building as seen above could of been what xaviers mansion originally looked like before they build the new one.

    And since we never saw the mansion in flashbacks or in Wolverine, it's not stepping on any toes by changing that bad boy

    That must mean that Black Tom is the villain and that he's turning everything into wood with his Secondary and Tertiary Mutations!1!
