X-Men: First Class Extended Scene
See Banshee fly!

Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class hits DVD next Monday (October 31), but just ahead of that release we have a tiny sneak preview of the disc's extras for you, in the shape of this extensively extended scene showing Banshee's training regime.

The film, as any fool knows, is the story of Marvel's mutants' early years, trying to make their super-powered way through a hostile (but kinda cool, James Bond-ian) world. James McAvoy plays the young Professor X; Michael Fassbender is Erik Lehnssher / Magneto; the cast is rounded out by the likes of Caleb Landry Jones (seen here as Banshee), Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Oliver Platt, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Jason Flemyng, Zoe Kravitz and Alex Gonzalez.


Check out this fun, lengthier version of the scene and see what you think. Any way you look at it, we're looking forward to seeing this again at home, and catching up on the Fassavoy bromance. Roll on Halloween!

RE: Best tentpole of the summer...
Easily one of the best superhero films I've seen. Hoping for a sequel. More

Best tentpole of the summer...
I also think it was the most entertaining and best directed and acted tentpole of the summer...everything else as just pants...Fassbender, Vaughn and McAvoy did one hell of a job...what an origins story! More

Any news of a sequel to this? (or do we have to endure another tedious Wolverine pic first?) More
