    <i>X-Men: First Class</i> Gets Director and Release Date - To hit theaters on June 3, 2011 [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Matthew Vaughn will direct X-Men: First Class. The film has been assigned a release date for next summer and it’s June 3, 2011, for the film.

    According to Fox, First Class will "chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men." Sounds like it's going to be a good one.

    Did you like the first twoX-Men films? And what about the Wolverine origin story?
