When I first heard that this movie was going to be a prequel, I had this fantastic notion that the movie would start with Magneto ripping the adamantium off Wolverine's bones then Charles nuking his mind, and the entire movie took place in Magneto's mind in that split second as his entire life flashed before his eyes.

I just hope they dont ruin this movie by releasing it in 3D.

She IS a shapeshifter.

In my opinion this is better than the green lantern trailer. Its not the usuual "deep bass voice" or "only you can do this, only you can. . . ." instead its in the cold war and we hear a public figure of the past.

Then I personaly find the x-men trailer less cheesy than the green lantern one though thats subjective.

Point taken.

But in one of the X-Men movies, I recall her losing her mutant powers due to some antidote. In this "normal" form she appeared rather young...

Go to 4:52 in the video and watch the last scene.

...

So...shapeshifting lolita who tempted young Magneto as a child disguised as teenage jailbait?

Ugh this is so confusing... probably better to call this a reboot and send the other movies to oblivion. (everyone wishes they'd disappear anyway...)

What I don't get is whether this is supposed to be a superhero movie or not. I mean, there's certainly a lot of walking down halls and sitting on couches, but the action is all sort of implied. I'm all for replacing all the angst and posing that normally goes into these movies with an actual subtext, but the action here is just too understated for my tastes.
If we can't have it all then we should hope for great storytelling rather than eyecandy.

Comicbook movie thats so engrossing its worthy of an oscar...or another Transformers... I don't wanna see my childhood exploited anymore

Not particularly impressed by the trailer, admittedly. As much as I like James McAvoy, I can't quite see him playing Charles Xavier, and even if he knocks it out of the park, I'm still uncertain that I'll be able to watch him onscreen and not think of Wesley Gibson.

On the positive side, this Magneto seems to have the right voice for the part. I may be delusional, but he sounded a fair bit similar to Ian McKellen.

She is over 100 years old, and the movie takes place before the existing two x-man movies (third doesnt count as a movie).

As a really big X-men fan I have to say that I am impressed, yes Xavier has hair but who cares the film looks pretty awesome. Seriously guys we get a movie with Darwin, Havock, Azazel (FREAKING NIGHT CRAWLERS DAD), and of course Banshee. Plus as anyone who saw Kick-Ass can tell you, Matthew Vaughn is a great director. Why on earth should anyone be worried?

Yeah, I don't like this trailer but the continuity is not the problem. I'm a huge comic nerd, but I don't expect movies to stick with the same stories, characters, etc.

What I don't get is whether this is supposed to be a superhero movie or not. I mean, there's certainly a lot of walking down halls and sitting on couches, but the action is all sort of implied.

The most interesting thing about X-Men, in my mind, is the MLK/Malcom X relationship between Xavier and Magneto. That seems to be what this movie is about, and I like that.

For a movie that takes place in the 60's, it doesn't look very 60's at all.

Other than that I haven't really seen anything new or interesting in this trailer that I hadn't already seen in the previous movies. And the whole relationship between Xavier and Magneto seems to be the same old song all over again.

Atleast this time it look like the X-Men are actually fighting a real war instead of just mutant skirmishes. I guess that counts for someting.

I liked the first two X-Men movies and could deal with the third.

It's going to be weird to see a crew this young as X-Men but I can deal with it I think. Not expecting much but I am curious to see how this is going to pan out.

One plus though: No Wolverine!
I am so tired of that character.

also: KEVIN BACON AS SEBASTIAN SHAW.
They what? Frikkin A!

So The White Queen will probably be a villain. Hellfire Club trying to instigate a full scale war? I'd like to see that.

Oh, man. I love the costume and vehicle designs.
The superhero genre really needs a 'period-piece' like this, especially to make up for the travesty that was Watchmen.

Partly this, and..

..Why do I feel like I'm watching the Watchmen sequel, with X-men? I mean, really. Come on!

Rather liked the trailer, might be worth going to see at the cinema when it comes out. But I thought the trailer for Last Stand looked pretty good, and that didn't work out so well for me. And I saw Origins at the cinema, that very nearly put me off the X-Men franchise completely. But this film might be the one that restores my faith

"That 'X-Men 3' trailer looked awesome! I can't wait to see it!"

Cut to:

"That movie blew! I'm never wasting my money on another 'X-Men' movie again!"

Cut to:

"The 'Wolverine' trailer looked awesome! I can't wait to see it!"

Cut to:

"That 'Wolverine' movie sucked! I'm never wasting my money on another 'X-Men' movie again!"

Cut to:

"That 'X-Men: First Class' trailer looked awesome!"

And the cycle begins anew.

Nah. Mystique is actually something like 200 years old. She just looks young. Not even kidding, thats cannon. She used to chill with Wolverine for a while.
