Tonight's open thread on Kotaku might (once again) be about super hero movies. Now that we've all gotten to take a peek at the X-Men: First Class trailer, it's probably the right time.

I seem to be in the minority about our first look at the new X-Men movie. Maybe it's that I grew up with a White Queen who didn't turn to diamond. Maybe it's that I don't know who Azazel is. Maybe it's that despite the appearance of JFK in the trailer, it doesn't look like it's set in the 1960s.

But most likely, it's the last two X-Men movies I saw. Man, they were terrible. And this new one seems frighteningly rushed. But io9's breakdown of the trailer certainly helped me overcome my post-2000 X-Men ignorance.

What do you think? You don't want to talk about X-Men? Here are some other options.
