It’s no secret that this summer is already shaping to be a big one for Hollywood, and the next movie that studio execs are hoping will make a big splash is X-Men: First Class, which opens June 3rd.
Two of the stars of the movie, Michael Fassbender and Zoe Kravitz, have recently gone public with their off-screen relationship. The couple was snapped together in New York City wearing distinct, but equally chic fashion sunglasses.
Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of the musician Lenny Kravitz and the actress Lisa Bonet, is wearing round-framed John Lennon-style sunglasses, with a thickened bridge, and Michael Fassbender a classic pair of large aviator sunglasses with gold-colored frames.
In the upcoming X-Men movie, which delves into the origins of the Marvel superheroes, Zoe Kravitz plays Angel Salvadore, a new character in the hugely popular X-Men movie franchise; this is already the fourth film this decade. Salvadore’s character is a go-go dancer whose mutation is a pair of insect-like wings sprouting out of her back. Fassbender plays Magneto, the Holocaust survivor and ultimate cynic who has the ability to control metal with his mind.
Whether the movie will outstrip it’s competitors at the box office, including The Hangover 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean, remains to be seen, but with so many fans eager to experience the origin story of their favorite heroes and villains on the big screen and now a real life celebrity romance added to the drama, it certainly has a good shot.
