X-Men: First Class trailer debuts today on Facebook

By Jen Chaney

Come on. You know you want to get status updates from Mystique. (Image via Facebook)

Final update: The trailer went live at 6 p.m. EST. You can see it in this here blog as well as on the X-Men Facebook page.

Another update, 4:20 p.m. ET: The X-Men: First Class trailer, Facebook debacle edition

Updated: 3:40 p.m. EST

Still no new trailer on the Facebook page. Fans are (justifiably) complaining on the page. I've reached out to Fox to find out what's going on but have not heard back.

Updated: 3:09 p.m. EST

The trailer for "X-Men: First Class" still hasn't posted to the Facebook page. And the time of the trailer's arrival has been removed -- the page now simply says the new clip will be posted "this afternoon."

Fans are already posting their frustration on the page, even though we're currently talking about a delay of 10 minutes. Presumably the trailer will go live soon.


The trailer for "X-Men: First Class" will make its debut this afternoon on the movie's Facebook page at 3 p.m. EST/noon PST. Naturally, you must opt to like the movie's page in order to see the content.

The preview clip -- already generating a lot of online chatter despite the fact that no one has seen it yet -- is launching on Facebook as part of Fox's effort to build a social networking campaign around the origin story of everyone's favorite gaggle of mutants.

Once we get an embeddable clip of the trailer, we'll post it here. After that, we plan to friend Professor Xavier, then poke Magneto.

"poke Magneto"

I feel like that can only end poorly.
