X-Men: First Class will chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, when Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. They were working together with other Mutants to stop Armageddon. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.
However, Jennifer Lawrence is playing Raven Darkholme/Mystique, while James McAvoy appears as Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class. Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon and January Jones are also playing important roles in the film, which will hit the screens on June 03.
