Exclusive: Goldman On X-Men Cameos

If you've already caught the return of Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr and co. to the big screen, you'll know that X-Men: First Class boast a couple of cameo moments to have audiences chucking their popcorn around in sheer glee.

For reasons of heinous spoiling, co-writer Jane Goldman couldn't divulge the actual names but she did share the origin story of the origin story's top secret cameos. "The one eveyone will be talking about was [co-producer] Bryan Singer's idea, I believe," she explained. "He had that great idea and Matthew [Vaughn] and I just adored it. It was a great use of the one 'fuck' we were allowed in the movie."

Watch the clip below for more from Goldman.



X-Men: First Class is out now.

RE: Who has a cameo apart from the sweary one?
L: sanchia L: doubtlesswonder In the comic book canon he's Scott's younger brother, but the film-makers said they were going to change that to fit the story, but keep them related somehow. I guess they made Alex the older brother. Going for the geek award. His father is Corsair a pirate in space. f course, there's the youngest brother Vulcan (Gabriel), too. Not to mention Scott's son Nathan (Cable).I think Nathan drew the short straw on nicknames. More

It's Jennifer Lawrence, then Erik tells hert to come back in a few years and she morphs into older Mystique (Rebecca Romjin. Then Erik asks for the real Raven and it's back to Jennifer Lawrence, then he says "The real Raven" again, and she turns blue. So it's blue Jennifer Lawrence that kisses him. More
