Xmen First Class Trailer, and Synopsis.

Yosh, next month, 3 June 2011, just only 2,3 weeks to go this epic movies from marvel productions to watch this movies.

Synopsis Xmen First Class: 

“Charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

The Screenrant article seems to be sure that “to stop Armageddon” means the X-Men character Armageddon and not “Armageddon” as in the end of the world. (They didn’t even consider that it could mean “Armageddon” as in the Michael Bay film, and that X-Men First Class was all about stopping a movie from going into production. Shame on them.)

Actually, I think the end of the world “Armageddon” makes much more sense than the character for a few reasons: 
1) Armageddon was partially created by Jean Grey, who is not in the movie, 
2) The plot synopsis refers to Professor X and Magneto as men and mutants but it never refers to Armageddon as either, 
3) The movie reveals a “secret history of famous global events,” which sounds in line with an apocalyptic storyline, 
4) Doesn’t it make more sense for the mutants to fight to save the end of the world – from anything – instead of an obscure mutant whose back story doesn’t fit into the world they’re creating?

Xavier and Lensherr are teaming up against Armageddon, with a capital “A,” possibly referencing the actual Marvel character and not the word representing the end of the world (it is capitalized in the bible however). For those unfamiliar with the character, Armageddon (pictured below) was created by Apocalypse, arguably the most dangerous of X-Men villains. In the comics, Apocalypse used his own DNA as well as Jean Grey’s to create Armageddon in another reality. The film is seemingly deviating quite a bit from the comics and Bryan Singer stated that Jean and Cyclops are not in the film so that connection likely won’t be made.

The more interesting connection however, is that of Apocalypse, a character many diehard X-Men fans desired to be featured/introduced in X-Men 3 or X-Men 4 had it come to be. He could be used as a background villain if First Class is able to launch a franchise/trilogy of its own.

As for the other reality from the comics being used in the film, it may be a stretch but director Matthew Vaughn did hint at the possibilities of either time travel or alternate dimensions back when doing press for the Kick-Ass home video release. When discussed whether First Class is a reboot or still in continuity, he described Singer’s script as “clever” and referenced time, while comparing the film to what J.J. Abrams did with Star Trek(creating another dimension/continuity through time travel).

The other (and more likely) possibility is that Armageddon is referring to “Project Armageddon,” the Sentinel program (mutant hunting robots) supported by Sebastian Shaw’s Hellfire Club boss, Edward Buckman and hinted at in the intro to X-Men 3. Buckman, the White King of the Hellfire Club, had partnered with a man named Stephen Lang, a mutant-hating government-employed engineer who manufactured the Sentinels. Perhaps this is where actor Ray Wise’s Secretary of State character comes in?

Tying this all into the characters we know will appear in X-Men: First Class, in the comics Shaw uses Emma Frost to make Buckman kill the council and them Buckman himself so Shaw can become the leader. For years, Shaw supported the Sentinels as a way to have more power, despite being a mutant himself.
