Producer Bryan Singer checked in with Ain't It Cool News today and revealed several new details about X-Men: First Class, with the major update being that the film will take place in the 1960s.

The film will show us how James McAvoy's Professor Xavier and Michael Fassbender's Eric Lehnsherr/Magneto first meet and discuss their similar goals of mutants and humans living together as one. Singer revealed that Xavier won't be in a wheelchair throughout the film, although it will show how he comes to be in the wheelchair.

Singer also said that, since the film will be set in the 60s before the original comic books, characters such as Scott "Cyclops" Summers and Jean Grey won't be in the film, although Summers' brother, Alex a.k.a. Havoc, will be in the film, played by Lucas Till.

It was also revealed that Kevin Bacon's villain character will in fact be Sebastian Shaw, which means that, along with the addition of January Jones as Emma Frost, the film will also feature The Hellfire Club, which Singer said was being added since the film will be set in the party atmosphere of the 60s.

Singer also revealed that there will be more characters in the film that have not been revealed yet.
