After the first images 3 weeks ago, 20th Century Fox have now released the first trailer () showing a little of what to expect from X-Men: First Class.

The movie charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events.

X-Men: First Class

In the images we see Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr, who later becomes Magneto. We also get a good look at Professor Charles Xavier played by James McAvoy. The two young mutants are discovering their powers for the first time. They are not yet arch enemies but close friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new) to stop Armageddon.

In the process, a rift between them will open, beginning the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

X-Men: First Class

Rose Bryne plays Moira MacTaggert and is shown in the group photo. In the comics she is featured as a character who helps fund Xavier’s school. We’re not quite sure what she’ll be getting up to in the movie (or who with!).

The villains of the piece are also shown. Kevin Bacon plays Sebastian Shaw, a mutant with the ability to absorb kinetic energy and turn it into raw strength. He is the leader of the Hellfire club, a secret society hell-bent on world domination. He is shown talking to Emma Frost, a powerful telepath, played by January Jones.

X-Men: First Class

I’m curious to see Fassbender as Magneto and what kind of havoc the Hellfire club will be unleashing on the world, but I do wonder if McAvoy will be repeating his performance from Wanted and if Bryne will be too similar to Ellen Page’s turn as Kitty.

Still, there’s always January Jones to be excited about!

So, do the images and the trailer for of X-Men: First Class pass the first test?
