X-Men First Class – Meet Havok, Beast and Banshee

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.

Come June 3rd, will Alex Summers (brother of Scott in the comic-verse, you know) make fans say, “Cyclops, who??” Here’s a taste!

Hey, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence and yes, the new Katniss Everdeen), try not to be a bad influence on our buy genius, Hank McCoy, eh! I can see why there would be some major chemistry between the two mutants. How would you cope with turning into a big blue Beast?

    Neither Donald Pierce or Harry Leland are in this. Tessa and Selene are not in the film either. They are what make up the Hellfire Club aside from Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost. There are 28 other X-Men enemy teams listed on Wikipedia that they will choose a few from to include in the sequels. The Hellfire Club won’t be used again.

    I look forward to seeing the following X-Men enemy teams in future X-Men prequels/sequels:

    Acolytes, Alliance of Evil, Brotherhood of Mutants, Children of the Vault, Clan Akkaba, Dark Riders, Dark X-Men, Demons of Limbo, Externals, Factor Three, Freedom Force, Gene Nation, Hell’s Belles, Hellions, Horsemen of Apocalypse, Marauders, Morlocks, Mutant Liberation Front, Nasty Boys, Neo, Neyaphem, Omega Gang, Press Gang, Reavers, Rising Sons, Savage Land Mutates, Upstarts, X-Cell
