Listen up, X-Fans! The cast and filmmakers of X-Men: First Class want to hear from you, the “X-Perts.” Starting in March, you will have the opportunity to submit questions about the characters, behind-the-scenes action and the film itself. Each week, a new member of the cast or crew will answer some of your questions. The program will continue every week until the movie releases on June 3rd.
Maybe you’ll want to ask producer Bryan Singer and director Matthew Vaughn why the first class of Xavier’s mutants are out of canon with the comics, introducing relatively new characters such as Darwin and Angel Salvadore. Perhaps you’re interested in Beast’s (Nicholas Hoult) daily grooming habits. Or maybe you just want to ask Emma Frost (January Jones) why she’s so damn hot.
To see how to submit your questions, hit the jump.
20th Century Fox and X-Men Movies have set up a Facebook page where fans can submit all their questions. You can also submit via Twitter by tweeting to the user tag @XMenMovies. X-Men: First Class will start accepting questions on March 1st and the cast and filmmakers will begin answering them on March 9th. Personally, I hope January Jones answers every single one of them. (In costume, preferably. Fingers crossed.) Although, Bryan Singer knows a thing or two about the X-Men universe, so I suppose he wouldn’t be too bad either.
Even though the actors may be spoon fed the answers to your questions, this is a pretty cool way to keep the publicity going until the movie’s release date. What better chance do fans have to show off their “X-Pertise?” (Their term, not mine.)

Here’s the official synopsis:
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. Matthew Vaughn (“Kick-Ass”) directs, and the producers are Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer. Singer, who helmed the acclaimed blockbusters “X-Men” and “X2,” wrote the story for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
