X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, will chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. 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.
It was announced that James McAvoy will play the young Professor X in the X-Men prequel at the end of May, and casting is now underway for a 10-12 year old boy with blue eyes to play his even younger self.
The film is set to start shooting in London in August, and the studio has set a June 3rd 2011 release date.
