Update: Apparently the image is not authorized and got out somehow. Another image is expected to be released soon, which will be our first ‘official’ look.
MSN has posted our first official look at Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. Unfortunately, it’s not the best way to get our first glimpse at something. The image is small and the photo-shopping isn’t that great, which doesn’t say anything about how the movie will turn out, but 20th Century Fox could have done better.
From left to right we have Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Emma Frost (January Jones), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Xavier (James McAvoy).
The costumes look kind of cool, and we’ve known the movie would be set in the 60s for a while so we were expecting something more retro and comic-like.
X-Men: First Class will focus on Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as they work together with other mutants to stop the Hellfire Club, an international social club for wealthy elites who seek to influence world events to their own agenda. Kevin Bacon will play the leader, Sebastian Shaw, along with January Jones as Emma Frost.
I’ll post a larger image as soon as it is released. What do you think of the costumes?
