IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
UPDATED: This image has been removed at the request of 20th Century Fox.
In what The Daily What so accurately describes as a Photoshop disaster, we’re provided with our first official look at the cast of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class in costume. The image premiered this morning on MSN Entertainment before it was quickly removed, presumably because 20th Century Fox wasn’t ready for it to debut.
Pictured, from left, 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 Charles Xavier. Not pictured are Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Oliver Platt as the Man in Black, and Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee.
Here’s the official description of the film, which opens on June 3.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-MEN saga. 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.
