Matthew Vaughn Talks X-Men: First Class

New X-Men First Class news comes from Splash Page:

No matter what it turns out to be in the end, it’s already clear that X-Men: First Class is going to be something unusual. What we’ve seen so far of the ’60s-set origin story for Marvel’s premiere mutant super-team has a very different feel compared to other recent comic book adaptations. Director Matthew Vaughn thinks so too. Really, that’s the whole point.

“This is going to be very different. What I’m doing no one has done in superhero films. It’s James Bond, it’s a political thriller and it’s an X-Men movie,” he told IGN during a set visit.

Vaughn came to the project with an open mind. Let’s face it: the direction taken in “X-Men: The Last Stand” was not a particularly welcome one, a fact that he recognized going in.

“It’s not like the other X-Men movies which I think is important. I think they need to sort of take on a new… you know, what ‘Batman Begins’ did for all those Batman movies? We bloody well need it. I’m not saying it’s going to be as good as Batman Begins, but it’s the same sort of attitude,” he said.

IGN also brings word from the set of an action scene they saw being shot (mild spoilers follow).

In the scene, a group of Sebastian Shaw’s (Kevin Bacon)men, led by Azazel (Jason Flemyng), beats the crap out of a group of security guards in a government facility’s rec room. Also featuring into the scene is a group of young, terrified mutants, including Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Angel Salvadore/Angel (Zoe Kravitz), Armando Munoz/Darwin (Edi Gathegi), Alex Summers/Havok (Lucas Till) and Sean Cassidy/Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones).
