X-Men: First Class Trailer

First of all let me say that it doesnt look bad. Now having said that Im still going to cry the whole time from disappointment. First of all the continuity of Fox's X-men universe is going to be royally fucked because of this movie. The universe that only they have rights to. They wont let anyone else step in to do crossovers or sell the right s to Marvel, A place I feel could keep the continuity together, no they want to fuck it up themselves, but hey who cares as long as they milk it for every dollar its worth. Another classic example of how the suits dont care about anything but a buck. You're probably wondering what doesnt match up continuity wise. Heres a small list.

1. Fucks the whole time line up. (This is supposed to take place in the late 60's. wolverine takes place roughly in the 80's, they never actually say, and Xavier is already a bald old man in that. You mean to tell me that from the mid 60's to the 80's he loses all his hair and ages 40 years?)
2. Beast had a short cameo in the first x-men film as his alter ego Dr. Hank McCoy. (In the first film as McCoy he is still normal looking. No big blue fur yet. In first class they have him changing into the fur ball.)
3. Havok (Havok aka Alex Summers is Cyclops' younger brother, yet in this movie they have him on the first team. In Wolverine they have Cyclops as just a high schooler. How could Havok still be younger if its the 60's and he looks like he's 17. Cyclops would have barely been born if born at all.)
4. Emma Frost (In wolverine she is a teenage girl. In first class she is an adult woman. Again, time lines are getting fucked.)

Secondly I think they could have chose the cast a little better. I mean James McAvoy would not have been my first pick for a young Xavier. Idk he just doesnt seem very Chuck to me. Also January Jones is hot, but she's no White Queen!

Lastly I think they are trying to pack way to many characters in this movie. I mean look at last stand they had 6 and they couldnt pull off any character development of quality. In first class they have something like 9+. Just think its gonna be too much personally.

Now having complained, it still looks awesome, and yes I'll still pay my 8 bucks to see it. Im just gonna bitch about it forever, cause Im too much of a fan boy and thats just what we do!

Tell me what you guys think.
