When the rather superb X-Men: First Class DVD and Blu-ray comes along in a few weeks, there’s going to be a decent sized crop of deleted scenes included.
Judging from a listing in the BBFC database, there’s going to be thirteen of them, with a total runtime of under fourteen minutes. So they’ll be brief. Not a surprise as the film had a really snappy pace.
Judging from what Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman told me back at the time of the release, much of the deleted material would revolve around Moira MacTaggart, her work at the CIA and her relationship with Charles.
It sounded to me like the film would benefit a touch from having the scenes edited back in, but – again judging from the BBFC’s listing – this isn’t the case, and they’ll be stand alone.
