Today will be an epic day for any Marvel Comics fan, especially those who adore the X-Men (like me). In an MTV exclusive, daring video profiles for three mutants from the upcoming movie, X-Men: First Class, were unleashed.
Are you ready to get to know Banshee, Havok, and the new Beast, up close and personal? I know I am! Will Chuck be able to help these kids control their super powers? Don’t miss the new film trailer, or the very comic book-ish new poster.
This version is of Banshee is a little young, no? Comic book readers will remember Professor Xavier (MacAvoy) and Moira (Rose Byrne) have had their romantic entanglements, but Moira has also been linked as Banshee’s girl. Ruh-roh.
