Deleted "Gentlemen's Club" Scene from X-Men: First Class
08.24.11 by Ryan
In case you missed the X-Men prequel when it was in theaters this summer, X-Men: First Class is coming to DVD on September 9th. One of the deleted scenes has just been released to build anticipation.
Set during the Cuban missile crisis, First Class explores the early days of friendship between Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and their recruitment of other mutants like them. During the movie, Professor X and Magneto head to a, er, "gentlemen's club" to meet with Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz), who works there, uh, entertaining gentlemen. Angel reveals her mutant powers to the two men but, as the deleted scene reveals, Professor X and Magneto first show their powers to gain the trust of Angel. We're guessing that it was cut because Fassbender objected to appearing in drag...
First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass), earned $350 million worldwide during its theatrical run. Fox has yet to officially announce a sequel, but Vaughn has admitted that he would "definitely" like to return for a sequel, revealing that a mutant connection to the JFK assassination could be a focus in a sequel. Producer Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and X2: X-Men United, has said that a sequel "could inhabit a whole world of the 20th century." That is, if the studio gives the greenlight to another installment.
