Michael Fassbender in 'X-Men: First Class' (2011)

Just thought it might be nice to gather together the latest picture releases from Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, the X-prequel that shows us the early days of Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto/Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) and some of the classic characters from the Marvel franchise, including Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Emma Frost/White Queen (January Jones) and Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence).

The last time Marvel took us into this territory was in the rather lighter (and, in my opinion, under-rated) Fantastic Four (2005), which explored the four protagonists' complicated relationship with their then-colleague who was ultimately to become Doctor Doom. Just how quickly Xavier and Lensherr become enemies may depend on whatever plan there may be for an arc of First Class movies. Concentrating on the bad guy back-when-he-was-good is always an intriguing notion, and one that was rarely exploited to its full potential in either the Star Wars prequels (bar a couple of moments that were helped along by John Williams' score and Ian McDiarmid's superb take on the Emperor-to-be, Chancellor Palpatine) or the Raimi Spider-Man trilogy...

X-Men: First Class is released in the UK on the 2nd of June.
