After having a successful opening weekend FX has picked up the TV rights to Matthew Vaughn’s movie adaption of X-Men: First Class.

Hot off the heels of making 55.1 million dollars at the box office this weekend, X-Men: First Class has a new TV home, FX. First Class joins the previous three X-Men movies as well as Spider-Man and Fantastic Four on the network.

New X-Men: First Class Footage Debuts!

Posted on 19 April 2011 by Christian

Hit the jump to check out this new TV spot for X-Men: First Class featuring some new scenes with Havok, Banshee and more. Film is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender!

X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X

Activision Developing A Video Game Based On X-Men: First Class?

Posted on 17 March 2011 by Christian

The latest UK edition of the Official Playstation Magazine seemingly reveals that the studio behind the Spider-Man series of games are working on one for X-Men: First Class! Check it out…

While reading an article in the latest issue of the UK edition of OPM (Official Playstation Magazine) about Activision’s decision to cancel planned releases of future Guitar Hero titles and True Crime: Hong Kong.

When they went on to talk about the franchises that the company would now be focusing on, I was more than a little surprised to come across the following:

“Activision has also been keen to point to its other properties like, erm, X-Men: First Class, Spider-Man and Transformers 3.”

X-Men: First Class!?! Well, that’s the first I’ve heard about them planning a video game adaptation of the upcoming prequel! It’s not hard to believe that they’re holding off on revealing the game when the adaptations for Thor and Green Lantern (both out at around the same time) have so far only provided us with a handful of screenshots and a couple of brief trailers.

I’m not sure about you guys, but I for one would love to play as Magneto, Beast and a few of the other character being introduced in the movie! With production on the movie being fairly rushed, it’s also a possibility that the game will be released alongside the DVD and Blu-Ray.

RUMOR: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Up For A Role In A Future X-Men Movie?

Posted on 12 February 2011 by Christian

In yet another rumor the site that recently claimed the former wrestler was in the running to play Superman, there is now a new theory that he’ll star as a mutant in the near future…

Not exactly the most reliable of sources I know, but Examiner have now revealed that there have been whispers accompanying the X-Men: First Class trailers release yesterday that Dwayne Johnson is up for a role in a future X-Men movie. They also mention that he’s been a big fan of the franchise for a while now and that his friendship with Hugh Jackman might help with him landing a role.

As Hugh Jackman bulks up to his beefy best for the next sequel to Wolverine in the the hugely popular X-Men film franchise, there’s talk amidst Thursday’s release of the X-Men First Class trailer that a former WWE superstar-turned-movie star may become a mutant himself.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, a self-described “fan” of the X-Men series, has been rumored as a potential star in a future X-Men film for nearly three years. So far, the rumors haven’t manifested in reality. But with Jackman and Johnson becoming good friends, perhaps Thursday’s rumor mill will have actually gotten something right for a change.

While the ridiculous earlier rumors from the site claiming that both Dwayne Johnson and John Cena were up for the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s reboot a few months back, I really do hope that this one has some truth to it. While I can’t think of a mutant in particular that he’d be well suited for, I think he’s a great actor and would not be in the least bit bothered about him getting a role in this type of film in future! Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

X-Men: First Class is set to be released on June 3, 2011!
