Apparently the Angel in this movie is this one.

Not really.  Find me any movie adaption of a comic that doesn't diverge from the original storyline in some way. 

Yeah, but that's a whole other can of worms. I'm talking about comics rewriting their own history, which as a longtime Silver/Golden Age Purist I find abhorrent.

The original X-Men, in the oh-so-darling blue and yellow geek suits,
were Cyclops, the Angel, the Beast, Iceman, and Marvel Girl.

I have no idea who those schmoes in the photo are. They ain't the "first class" by a long shot though...

Wow, that's a pretty ridiculous sounding character if it's the one they go with in the film.  I don't really want to see an egg laying, acid spitting, fly girl (and not a Wayans in sight).

Completely 100% agree.  Maybe Xavier made this his X-Mansion mailroom crew, and they're handling all of the "first class" mail.

Wait.  They've inserted the X-Men into the Cuban Missile Crisis?

Deadpool reboot?  Yes, please.

Also, X-Men 4?  Meh.

New X-Men: First Class trailer is up at Yahoo Movies.  I have to say, at first I was disappointed that a movie titled "First Class" wasn't including Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, and Angel (although Beast is in there), after seeing a couple trailers it does look like it could be pretty cool.

The new trailer looks pretty rad.

Seeing some of the old school X-Men characters in the mix is definitely good.  Beast, Mystique and Banshee were pretty easy to pick out.  And the story point of Magneto with the Soviet sub is something that was a big deal in the comics in the 1980's, even if it was completely unrelated to this sort of story line.

Just saw X-Men: First Class.  Pretty good movie.  Interesting origin story, decent action, ****-ton of cameos...I'd go see another X-film based around these actors and the earlier timeframe to the previous movies.

I hope to catch it sometime this weekend, but we'll see. It seems like the majority of the reviews I have read for this have been overwhelmingly positive, with some even comparing it to the Dark Knight.  I haven't seen it, so that may be a stretch for many, but it is good to hear that it is a solid X-Men movie.  I still sort of wish they would have went with the First Class from the comics, but it sounds like many don't feel this way as much after seeing the new movie.

I don't know about comparing it to the Dark Knight, but there were some darker moments to the film than previous X-Men films.  Magneto going off during the first third of the film, for example, was pretty impressive.

Shaw was also probably the most evil villain of the 4 X-Men films.

It was interesting to see McAvoy play a more lighthearted Xavier when compared to Stewart's take.  Although, I still think Stewart was the perfect choice for Professor X for those films.

Saw X-Men: First Class this weekend. I think I liked this more than even the first two X-Men films.
