After a couple of trailers and a few character clips, the promotion for 20th century fox’s X-Men: First class has shifted into high gear with a new trailer that shows why it’s not a good idea to incur Erik ‘Magneto’ Lensherr’s wrath.
The new X-Men First Class international trailer is out and it includes a few seconds of new material. XMFC is now my second-most eagerly awaited superhero extravaganza of the summer. Check out the trailer following the jump.
Michael Fassbender has signed on to play an android character in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus – the film that has arisen from the ashes of Scott’s aborted Alien prequel – for which Fassbender was being considered.
The 20th Century Fox project also stars Noomi Rapace – who gave Lizbeth Salander life in the trilogy based on Stieg Larssen’s Millenium books.
So, if Fassbender is playing an alien, does that make Rapace the next Ripley? She’s got the chops – and the presence – to pull it off. Suddenly I’m very interested in Prometheus.
