Matthew Vaughn Put A Love Song in X-Men: First Class For The Ladies
If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time
“I think there’s a lot for women to enjoy in this film,” he said. “Remember ‘Armageddon’ [and] the Aerosmith song that got girls who probably wouldn’t have originally gone to see ‘Armageddon’ hearing there was a love song, and [saying], ‘Oh, maybe there is something in the film?’ . . . So it’s pure commerce, to be blunt, and I want women to see this film.” ––Matthew Vaugn, director of X-Men: First Class, on featuring the song Take That in X-Men: First Class.
The X-Men expanded canon is one of the most diverse team superhero concepts in the business. Rogue, Storm, Jean Grey, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Mystique and more. This is about as good as we’ve gotten it in a single comic franchise.
Listen, Mr. Vaughn. I can’t wait to see X-Men: First Class. The ads look really good. It is also reviewing really well. That’s all that anyone needs to know to go see it.
