Disney to Reboot "The Rocketeer" With Black Female Lead
Yahoo! Movies has premiered a second clip from X-Men: First Class, featuring the first meeting between CIA scientist Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) and a smitten Raven Darkholme (Jennifer Lawrence). Like the first clip, this one also includes Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggart and Oliver Platt as the Man in Black.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, the 20th Century Fox film also stars January Jones as Emma Frost, Lucas Till as Alex Summers/Havok, Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy/Banshee, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Jason Flemyng as Azazel and Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore. X-Men: First Class opens on June 3.
X-Men: 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 Lehnsherr 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 prevent nuclear 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.
