NOTE: Because we experienced some issues with our previous exclusive clip, Fox has asked that we remove that one and replace it with this one. Our apologies for any confusion this might have caused.
One of the biggest surprises of the summer was Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class. A film that was rumored to be rushed and have all kind of production issues turned out to be the best X-Men film since Bryan Singer was behind the camera. The cast, including star making performances from James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, was stellar, the action was top notch, the writing was sharp and at the end, almost everyone was left hoping to see where this period reboot of the X-Men franchise would go next.
While we still don’t know the answer to that question, you can soon dive headfirst into X-Men: First Class on Blu-ray. It’ll be released September 9 and has a ton of special features including several deleted and extended scenes. Slashfilm is proud to exclusively debut one of these scenes after the jump. It shows a bit more of what Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) has planned for the world as Charles Xavier (McAvoy) looking into the mind of Emma Frost (January Jones). Read More »

I’ve been listening to Henry Jackman‘s X-Men: First Class soundtrack on repeat ever since I saw the movie last week, so it’s safe to say I’m a fan. Before that, I loved John Ottman‘s score from X2, and before that, I was humming along to the theme song from the ’90s cartoon. Yet as wonderful as all of this X-Men-related music has been, there’s always been something missing — and that something is words. You can hum along to these melodies, but you can’t quite belt them out in the shower.
Thankfully, Ryan at TheWarpZone has taken it upon himself to rectify that. Inspired by the “epic win” of First Class, he’s penned a new, much more shower-friendly song that pays tribute to the mutant superheroes. Even better, I don’t have to learn a whole new tune, as the hilarious lyrics are set to Lady Gaga‘s inescapable “Born This Way.” Watch him perform the whole thing on an acoustic guitar — while wearing a Magneto costume — after the jump. Oh, and don’t worry if you haven’t gotten around to seeing First Class just yet — the song contains no spoilers whatsoever.
