After the initial X-Men trilogy and one Wolverine focused movie, 20th Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment bring us their fifth installment in 2011, X-Men: First Class. Losing much of the franchise’s steam after X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a good chunk of the audience base would be very skeptical about what was to come.
They’re doing a prequel?! They’re recasting Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr?!? (Well, obviously. It’s a prequel).
Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and X2, comes back to produce. Not only that, he lends his pen as co-writer for the story.
How does it compare to the other movies? What of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender’s portrayals of Charles and Erik? And who the heck built Cerebro?!
