Speakers Corner: The LF Forum > X-Men First Class Trailer

I wasn't convinced that this would be a good film to be honest given the let-down that was X-Men 3 and the travesty that was Wolverine, but this trailer looks pretty promising (from a comic fans point of view!)

2 questions regarding this:

1) who's the teleporter? if you freeze it, it looks like it might be... a red nightcrawler? nightcrawlers dad?

2) who's the chick with the insect wings? wasp? that would be odd, but would solve marvels issue of how to introduce wasp (for avengers purposes) without making a whole film about her.

I don't know, I thought it looked kind of samey. Like they'd just stumbled upon all the sets from the other films in a warehouse somewhere and gone 'Hey, what can we make with these?'

Having said that though, this is purely from the perspective of someone who has only really been introduced to X-Men by the films so feel free to slap me down if I'm missing something vital from the comics.

Also, the yellow suits look cool.

Hey Denis you've probably got your answers by now but

1) he is nightcrawlers dad yes his name is Azazel

2)Her name is Angel Salvadore known as simply Angel or Tempest

Early reviews have said that this is the best X men film to date heres hoping that this proves true!

I really loved it though I thought that it felt much to like another sequel as opposed to the start of a new franchise. I think they felt that we'd already been introduced to the characters so decided to focus more on action than characterisation, which is the mistake so many sequels make I fell. Its a shame becuase I felt that they could have done so much more with the relationship between Charles and Eric.

Having said that its still x men though and it was awesome!

I'm going to count to three and I'm going to move the coin......

That's because it is a prequel not the start of new franchise!

Ah yes it was made as a prequel but if its successful (unlike Wolverine) they wont it to launch a new franchise with it and eventually bring it to a new continuity. I know its a prequel though I just ment I was hoping for more character and its a shame that all sequels loose this :(
