X-Men: First Class

The summer of superheroes awaits. Oh yes, get excited for four action packed superhero movies from both DC and Marvel. The lineup is as follows:

  • - Thor - May 6, 2011
  • - X-Men: First Class - June 3, 2011
  • - Green Lantern - June 17, 2011
  • - Captain America: The First Avenger - July 22, 2011

My expectations for these movies are pretty high and I'm looking forward to them.
I've never been a huge fan of the X-Men series. I like them, but I've never loved them. The first movie was really well done, but then it was downhill from there. Especially with Origins. I mean what on earth was the deal with Deadpool. He couldn't talk, that completely ruined his character.

And then a couple months back I see this picture
and the only thought that went through my mind was, um . . . well that's gonna suck. Since then I haven't even thought about it. I had been thinking to myself that only three good superhero movies are going to be released this summer.
Then out of the blue, a trailer was released for X-Men: First Class and a friend of mine told me to go check it out. I checked it out, preparing myself for something as grotesque as Origins, but instead was pleasantly surprised. I don't know a lot about X-Men, but honestly this trailer looks badass! Check it out and enjoy, I am now looking forward to this movie.
