James McAvoy – X-Men: First Class a “Love Story”
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking the oh so dreamy Scottish actor, James McAvoy, is calling his new super hero prequel, X-Men: First Class, a love story so us girls will want to watch. Well, you would be mistaken, my friend. While I might be an unusual lady in that I collected comic books (and Barbies) as a kid, I say chicks need little convincing to continue buying tickets for comic book flicks. For one thing, male heroes are hot, and often more complex than you’d think. For another, female heroes kick just as much butt! And lastly, I enjoyed the drama in my Uncanny X-Men comics better than any live action soap operas of the day!
But like I said, this isn’t what McAvoy, cast in the iconic role of Professor Charles Xavier (yes, before he went bald), is meaning. When he says First Class is a love story, he means a love story between two guys. No, not like THAT. Xavier and Erik (before he becomes the villain Magneto) are trusted peers. They are equals. There’s a respect between them. This relationship, McAvoy likens to the classic Bro-mance, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. If you haven’t seen it, shame on you! Get thee to Netflix, post haste! The Paul Newman/ Robert Redford Western debuted in 1969.
