Kevin Bacon, Nicholas Hoult, Aaron Johnson, Caleb Landry, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Benjamin Walker, Amber Heard, Rosamund Pike... Like most big superhero movies, the names floating around X-Men: First Class have been whitey white. It's to be expected -- these movies come from decades-old comics and universes created in a time when minorities didn't get a lot of comic love. Even today, people are iffy at the thought of a black man playing Spider-Man, so all that's left are the few minorities that got thrown into the mix long ago.

Following in the footsteps of Halle Berry, this new world of mutants has grabbed a person of color -- Twilight Saga villain Edi Gathegi.
