These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.
Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.
Recently, a slew of brilliant one minute X-men First Class movie trailers came out, each focusing on a character in the movie. This was brilliant because while the X-men have their story, each character, of course, has his/her own story, struggling for acceptance, identity and place in a society that generally rejects them. You will struggle to find a good movie with so many individual story lines and strong characters. Even the minor characters have a whole history behind them that is intriguing because they have those elements of epic struggles for acceptance, identity and place to their character!
These short character trailers were so effective because add an additional dimension of intrigue and interest to the movie and makes it personal to the fan, creating a connection with each character. Originally, they were an MTV exclusive, but that lasted for about a day before someone captured it in high definition to put it on YouTube. Below is the collection thus far, along with a final longer X-men First Class trailer out a week before this post.
Get this music (Half the Man by Kopius Few and Methodic Doubt).
