Here's what we know about X-Men: First Class: it's directed by Matthew Vaughn, stars James McAvoy as a young Charles Xavier and will also feature a younger Magneto.
Now we're getting a sense of the movie's time and place, as well: according to an alert sent out by the West Michigan Film Office, X-Men: First Class will take place during the 1960s in South or Central American locations, if only partially.
From the West Michigan Film Office:
A location scout is seeking out areas with a 1960's, South-American or Central American island feel for the next X-Men movie, 'X-Men: First Class.' In particular, he needs to find cafe and bar locations, evoking the Argentinian feel of Bariloche, and an Art Deco Cafe or restaurant overlooking a body of water. Additionally, the movie calls for a Miami styled harbor for yachts. If you know of any locations that seem to match a description, please contact our office.
The time period and location leave me wondering how much Cyclops and his classmates will have to do with First Class, despite the title indicating their involvement. Will the movie focus solely on the relationship between Xavier and Magneto? Will South America provide a backdrop for one of the titular First Class' training missions? Speculate away in the comments section.
