The official Facebook page for X-Men: First Class today released a new image of Lucas Till as Havok. No details about the image were added but it looks like Havok, who can generate powerful plasma blasts, is having a training session in an early version of the Danger Room.
In related news IGN posted a new interview with director Matthew Vaughn from their visit to the X-Men: First Class set.
“This is going to be very different”, explains Vaughn during a break between shots. “What I’m doing no one has done in superhero films. It’s James Bond, it’s a political thriller and it’s an X-Men movie. It’s not like the other X-Men movies which I think is important. I think they need to sort of take on a new… you know, what Batman Begins did for all those Batman movies? We bloody well need it. I’m not saying it’s going to be as good as Batman Begins, but it’s the same sort of attitude.”
IGN also gave details on the scene they saw being shot on the day (possible spoilers):
We did however get to witness Vaughn shooting an action-packed set-piece involving an assault on the MIB HQ. The sequence in question revolved around a group of Shaw’s men – led by the devlish Azael (Jason Flemyng) – laying waste to a team of security guards before attacking the compound’s recreation room.
Inside, a clearly terrified group of young mutants panic, with their number including Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank (Nicholas Hoult), Angel (Zoe Kravitz), Darwin (Edi Gathegi), Alex (Lucas Till) and Cassidy (Caleb Landry Jones).
Thanks to everything i’ve seen and heard, include that great trailer, X-Men: First Class is one of my most anticipated movies of this year. I have no doubt Vaughn will deliver on June 3rd.
