While some judiciously snapped pics from the set have slipped onto the net over the past few months, today the very first official images of 20th Century Fox’s incoming Marvel Comics adaptation “X-Men First Class” hit the web containing nearly the entire cast of heroes and villains:
From left to right, the stars of the picture are: Michael Fassbender as Erik “Magneto” Lensherr, Rose Byrne as Dr. Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma “The White Queen” Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Hank “The Beast” McCoy, Lucas Till as Alex “Havok” Summers, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as Charles “Professor X” Xavier. The film also stars Oliver Platt, Caleb Landry Jones and Kevin Bacon.
Directed by “Kick-Ass” helmer Matthew Vaughn and produced by original “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, “First Class” centers on the early relationship of Xavier and Lensherr as the friends turned foes years before the original trilogy of movies. It opens in theaters on June 3, 2011. For more on the movie, keep your eyes peeled to CBR and Spinoff Online as all the news becomes available.
