Re: The Amazing SPIDER-MAN (July 3rd) - News and Speculation
I personally enjoyed First Class more than The Avengers. Thought it was a little darker, delved into some of the characters more (though, to be fair, the Avengers each had their own movies give or take, so they didn't really have to dig into the mentality of the characters). The acting was phenomenal too. Fassbender as Magneto and McCavoy as Professor X both nailed their roles. It may have not had as much action, but the buildup was great and I didn't feel like they overdid some of the roles.
I'm also a HUGE X-Men fan which plays into it.
