- The movie will take place in the 1960's; they're drawing a lot of inspiration from the James Bond films of the era.
- Professor X will have hair! He'll be walking in the beginning of the film, but as he and Magneto have their falling out, he'll eventually wind up in his famous wheelchair.
- The Hellfire Club will make some kind of appearance, as both Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw will be present and accounted for. Looks like Kevin Bacon will be Shaw, which is an interesting role for him.
- They'll be filming in the U.S., England, and Russia (aka the Soviet Union in the film's timeframe), as well as other countries.
- Other confirmed characters (according to AICN): Darwin, Mystique, Banshee, Havok, Azazel, Beast, Xavier, Magneto, Moira MacTaggert, and "a female Angel".
Sounds like a new twist! I honestly was not expecting the 60's-era news; I kind of thought this would be some modern-era, mutants-in-high-school, Justin-Bieber-cameo kind of thing. Color me excited!
