The logo debuted on the official “X-Men: First Class” Facebook page, and features a giant “X” and the text “Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters” running around it. It’s a simple, eye-catching logo, and it’s not the only news arriving here on Splash Page today.
The first trailer for “X-Men: First Class” will also go live on Facebook tomorrow, according to EW, who an image from the trailer. The image appears to feature Magneto in costume — cape and all.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn (“Stardust,” “Kick-Ass”), “X-Men: First Class” is described as telling the story of “the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school…” This will bring fans back to a time before Professor X and Magneto were enemies (even before they went by those names, in fact) and is intended to explain how the X-Men got to be, well… where they are today.
“X-Men: First Class” is due in theaters June 3 from 20th Century Fox.
