We have known for a while that 20th Century Fox was looking to use Facebook as a primary vehicle to market their upcoming X-Men: First Class. Since launching the trailer last month, the page has served as a hub for all things related to the film, including exclusive photos. Today though marks the first in the page’s “X-Perts” series, where one member of the film’s cast or crew answers questions submitted by Facebook users. To read what producer Bryan Singer had to say about the film and the larger issues concerning the X-Men universe, hit the jump.
While it’s not a bad selection of questions, Singer’s answers leave something to be desired. Still, I respect the commitment Fox has made to using Facebook to generate hype for the film by hosting a variety of exclusive content. One of the questions is posted below, but be sure to over to the X-Men: First Class Facebook page for the rest:
Q: Erickson A.
If you were a mutant what kind of power would u want to have and why?
A: Bryan Singer
I would like the power of Nightcrawler or Azazel; the ability to teleport anywhere.
Look for the next “X-Perts” Q & A to be released March 23rd, when Nicholas Hoult, who plays Hank McCoy (Beast), answers questions from fans. X-Men: First Class hits theaters June 3rd.
