Michael Fassbender wants X-Men First Class 2
Michael Fassbender has been talking up his experiences on X-Men: First Class, saying he’s ready to put Magneto’s metal helmet back on and wave his hand in the air to make cars or whatever float around (we’re paraphrasing here).  "It was a very rewarding experience, so hopefully we’ll get the same team back again," he said. And it seems he especially enjoyed working with James McAvoy, despite the fact they experienced difficult circumstances[FOR THE FULL STORY, CLICK ON MAGNETO OR FOLLOW THIS LINK]

X-Men: First Class Review
Kevin Bacon as a mutant Nazi! Rose Byrne in her pants! Nicolas Hoult done up like Sully from Monsters, Inc! And these aren’t even the best things about Matthew Vaughn’s vibrant, sprawling, ensemble origin story (well, maybe the Bacon bits…). 
A franchise reboot reminiscent of JJ Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek overhaul, this is the fifth film in the X-Men canon and even if it can’t quite match Bryan Singer’s X2 (among the finest of its kind) First Class is still fast, fresh and fun. 
It’s intelligent and emotionally resonant, explosive and eye-dazzling. Factor in a zeitgeisty, hot-list cast and First Class is likely to be one of the summer’s best biggies. It sure as hell razes Brett Ratner’s disappointing X-Men: The Last Stand (which Vaughn was slated for a one point) and Gavin Hood’s time-waster Wolverine.
Poland, 1944: a young Erik Lehnsherr is separated from his parents in a concentration camp; meanwhile, in an affluent but isolated stately home in New York a young Charles Xavier happens upon a strange blue little girl who’s able to disguise herself as other people. 
Eighteen years later, Erik (Michael Fassbender) and Charles (James McAvoy) have matured into powerful, charismatic men with opposing agendas. 
Their paths cross in the pursuit of former Nazi Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon), a ruthless mutant supremacist plotting to use the Cuban Missile crisis to provoke a war among humans.

X-Men: First Class gets a new international trailer

X-Men: First Class may have had some dodgy promo posters, but it always manages to redeem itself just in time with a stonking trailer.

A new international trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s super-mutant prequel has landed online, and it’s cool enough to blow away any number of dodgy Photoshop incidents.

There’s plenty of new footage in there, though you may have seen some of it doing the rounds as a foreign-language promo.

Michael Fassbender still looks to be stealing the show as a cool-as-hell Magneto, and there are Bond references a-plenty thrown in.

And here is the second shit-bonanza.

And here is the second shit-bonanza.

Two new X-Men: First Class Posters arrive online
X-Men: First Class hasn’t had the greatest track record for promo art. First off, an unofficial group shot was leaked before it was ready, leading to fanboy uproar and studio disgruntlement.
Those  were followed by some fantastically moody posters for Erik Lehnsherr  (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), with subtle  hints at their characters’ futures.
That good work was then  undone by the ‘floating heads over silhouettes’ travesty, which looked  like they were done as some sort of primary school art project.
The new posters occupy the middle area between the previous highs and lows of X-promos. They’re not as ghastly as the the dreaded ‘silhouettes’, but they’re still fairly bland.

X-Men: First Class sequel plans revealed
The talent behind X-Men: First Class have revealed possible ideas for the next chapters in the mutant superhero saga. The ending of First Class sets up a potential sequel that will be “even more fun”, according to director Matthew Vaughn.
“First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time,” says Vaughn. “But with the second one you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time,” he continues. “That’s the main difference between Begins and The Dark Knight.”
