Director Matthew Vaughn is the latest member of the X-Men: First Class team to come forward today and offer details on the upcoming Marvel prequel. He was interviewed at the tail-end of principle shooting on the project, and had this to say:

"I'm at that stage where I feel like a boxer against the ropes. I'm just throwing punches and taking them as they come and making sure I don't hit the canvas. We're filming at the moment, we've a lot to get done. I've never worked under such time pressure. The good thing about the independent world is I never even knew if I was going to get distribution. I'm used to finishing a film and then crossing your fingers that someone is going to like it. This is totally doing it the other way around. We've definitely got a release date and we've got to make it."

James McAvoy was also on hand to talk about his character, saying:

"This isn't a reboot, so I'm not replacing anyone, in which case you might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from what had been done before. This is a prequel, so I'm the same character, just younger, but the challenge for me - and for Michael Fassbender - is to show the same person in a different place in their life; to show someone before they're this bad guy, before they're this saint. Charles wasn't always a ... monk, this selfless, sexless monk that he becomes."
