20th Century Fox have released a new 4 minute featurette for X-Men: First Class which features director Matthew Vaughn, producers Bryan Singer and Lauren Shuler Donner, and various members of the cast explaining the story, the characters and the messages within the film.
It contains lots of new footage, some of which verges on spoiler territory, so if you want to save yourself until next week then avoid watching this. If not, it’s embedded below. If you pause at the 1:03 mark you will see someone familiar.
Matthew Vaughn’s movie, set for release on June 3rd, will focus on Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as they work together with other mutants to stop the Hellfire Club, an international social club for wealthy elites who seek to influence world events to their own agenda.

The movie also features Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones) and Darwin (Edi Gathegi).
