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.
FX has added another No.1 box-office opener to its collection of film acquisitions. The cable network has closed a deal for the TV rights to X-Men: First Class, which opened at the top spot last weekend with $55.1 million. Last week, FX picked up Hangover II, which was the box-office champ the previous weekend. The acquisition of First Class, produced by sister studio Twentieth Century Fox, completes FX’s X-Men collection. The network also has the first 3 films in the franchise.
No word yet on when the film might air on FX, but you can check out X-Men:First Class in theaters right now.

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!

Here’s the first official image from X-Men: First Class. It’s pretty cool i guess. I expected them to be younger, like a middle school version of X-Men. I guess I should have read the synopsis…
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. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-MEN.
