After X2 the X-Men franchise would have some big hits on their hands with Last Stand and Wolverine: Origins, these films made money, but they were not critical successes, through a lot of behind the scenes machinations it was decided that the next film in the series would be a prequel.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Shawn Eastridge to talk about X-Men: First Class. We discuss mutant history, McAvoy, Fassbender and their moments together, a new Mystique, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, Hank, circumstances, you're not alone, time period and production, ratings and one last thing.
