The X-Men: First Class Roll Call Is Totally @#$%ed


?Anyone remember who X-Men: First Class was going to be a prequel to the X-Men movies? Anyone? Well, you might, but Fox apparently doesn’t. We’ve already discussed how Emma Frost has apparently joined the inaugural team of the X-Men, but now we also have Havok and Banshee (we also have Beast, but since was actually part of the first group of X-Men, it’s not interesting to talk about him). Gamma Squad has a round up of which faux Zac Efrons are up for each role, but I’m more concerned with bitching about what the hell is going on in Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. Banshee’s probably not that big a stretch, since he’s not interesting enough to really screw up any continuity, but Havok? Havok is a Summers brother. How the hell is that supposed to work?

Fuck it. I don’t even care any more. Have Magneto teach Defense Against the Dark Arts for all I care, just fucking admit that the movie’s a reboot, you bastards.
