Hi-res PHOTOS of Magneto and Professor X from ‘X-Men: First Class’

Official press still photo of Michael Fassbender as Magneto in X-Men First Class

A couple days ago we saw the first images of the cast of X-Men: First Class in costume featuring nine of the mutant stars looking MARVELous. Now we have the first official high-resolution press stills from the film featuring the leader of the X-Men Professor X (played by James McAvoy) and super-villain Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender). (Click images for super-sized wallpaper photos!)

To be honest, the Professor X image is a little disappointing in that there isn’t anything uniquely X-Men or Professor X about it – the photo could be from the set of Dr. Who – and I mean that in a bad. Magneto on the other hand is pretty awesome! That there is a hardcore old school comic book helmet! And I’m thinking industrial strap suspenders are going to be all the rage after this film hits the big screen!

**** Author’s Note – I realize this post is inherently disappointing to most everyone, including myself, because it lacks photos of the lingerie-clad January Jones as Emma Frost. But hang in there fellers, I’m sure Twentieth Century Fox will be unleashing the Frost soon enough!
