The first photo of the cast of X-Men: First Class has surfaced featuring nine of the characters in the 20th Century Fox production in costume! (Click image to enlarge!)
Included in the photo, from left to right, are: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as a standing upright Professor Charles Xavier!
The image appears to be a bit clumsy visually leading some to speculate it is actually a “leaked” image that wasn’t supposed to see the light of day. That being said, it is mighty fun checking out all the mutant glory, especially January Jones in her Victoria’s Secret inspired Emma Frost costume! They might need to change the name of this film to XXX-Men: First Class!!!
The film is currently in production and scheduled to be released June 3, 2011. Here is the synopsis from Twentieth Century Fox:
Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-MEN.
So whatya think of the photo? Professor Xtra lame or Mag-NEAT-O?
