Ohhh, Look…’X-Men: First Class’ Official Photos

* January 20th, 2011
* Posted in Movies
* By MarcC

Yesterday the web was a buzz over the casting of Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. While it wasn’t anything that great (I think Hardy is awesome but not impresses with Hathaway) the other comic related bit was this suspicious X-Men photo:

Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), January Jones (Emma Frost), Jason Flemyng (Azazel), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok), Zoe Kravitz (Angel Salvadore), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier)

It was quickly confirmed it was fake (take a good look and the heads/faces are a bit off) thought at first glance it had some merit. Now it seems we have a plethora of images for this throwback film that, in the words of Mr. Layer Cake and Kick Ass himself Matthew Vaughn, is more “Casino Royale than Star Trek“.

The idea of an X-Men film going back to the 60′s is more than an interesting premise, it sounds like a perfect way to take the series since the last 2 films have really derailed the franchise. Here’s hoping Matthew Vaughn (who was originally supposed to be at the helm of X3) can repair the damage done in his absence…at least before Darren Aronofsky gets his crack at with The Wolverine it that is. So as I enticed you with some images, let me make good with photos as advertised:

Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class is set for release this Summer on June 3 2011. What do you think? Will you be there? Anyone ready to give the X-Men series one more chance??

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS IS A MESS
by Tom on January 20, 2011 at 11:15 am

I know I've been posting a lot about comic book movies, so please excuse this rant. But X-Men: First Class is a mess.

X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn

First a little bit of a recap. Two days ago and awkwardly posed (and obviously Photoshopped) picture of the cast showed up on MSN before quickly being taken down. It was for naught as the photo made it's way around the internet in no time.
X-Men: First Class, cast photo, Magneto, Michael Fassbender, Moira MacTaggert, Rose Byrne, Emma Frost, January Jones, Azazel, Jason Flemyng, Beast, Nicholas Hoult, Havok, Lucas Till, Angel Salvadore, Zoë Kravitz, Mystique, Jennifer Lawrence, Professor Xavier, James McAvoy

From left to right, it features 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, Zoë Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as Professor X.

As a result, Fox ended up distributing 3 new photos from production to media outlets yesterday that show the cast in more traditional clothing, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw chatting it up with Jones's Emma Frost and a quaint shot of McAvoy and Fassbender playing chess.

Serviceable photos, but a little ho-hum. As bad as the leaked cast photo was, at least it gave us something to sink our teeth into. In fact, they kind of make X-Men: First Class look... well, boring.

That brings us to today. Now we have a conversation with director Matthew Vaughn who was so incensed about the original promo shot being leaked, he reached out to SlashFilm and provided them with a pair of HIS OWN exclusive images - including one of Fassbender wearing his Magneto helmet.
James McAvoy, Professor X, X-Men: First Class

Michael Fassbender, Magneto, X-Men: First Class

“I freaked out on them yesterday," said Vaughn. "I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, 'What the f*** is this s***?' and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad Photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…"

Vaughn goes on in the interview to assert that he loves the X-Men, that they are not bastardizing the concept, that the tone of the film is serious, more realistic and basically the most awesome thing since sliced bread.

Pardon me if this sounds like a load of crap.

Clearly Vaughn and Fox are scrambling to adjust perception of the film in the wake of the leaked cast photo. That's admirable. They're trying to manage expectations for the film and that leak undermined it.

But at the same time, I can't help but think all of this scurrying around is nothing but a huge cluster-eff and it really hasn't done much to change my perception of the film.

I understand it, the plot revolves around Professor X and Magneto jointly establishing their "School For Gifted Youngsters" and the ideological differences that drive them - and the student body - apart. Framed within the context of the social upheaval of the 1960's this makes sense.

But it over-complicates things.

Why do we need Angel Salvadore and Azazel in the mix? Modern characters that even most comic book fans aren't familiar with. For that matter, why do we need Havok or Mystique?

What's wrong with telling the origin story of the X-Men and using Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Angel and Beast? Why does there have to be this manufactured conflict or behind-the-scenes view of the school's foundation that depicts the how and why of Magneto and Professor X's falling out?

In the words of Patton Oswalt, "I don't give a s*** where the things I love come from! I just love the things I love!"

Mostly I think I'm worried about Fox's flimsy adherence to continuity. I don't need the movies to be exactly like the books, but Fox seems to have trouble following character development in their own films.

In X-Men 2, Hank McCoy (AKA Beast) had a cameo in human form as a mutant rights activist. In X-Men 3, he shows up in his more well-known furry blue form and is played by Kelsey Grammar. If the leaked promo shot is to be believed, Beast shows up blue and furry almost 20 years prior to the events of X-Men 2. Um, okay.

In the comics, Havok is the younger brother of Cyclops. But in Wolverine: Origins, we see Cyclops recruited by Professor X while he's still in high school. So I guess I'll be interested to see how they explain that - if at all.

I'll also be interested to see if they make any mention of Emma Frost's relationship to Silver Fox - a plot contrivance that was also laid bare by Wolverine: Origins. Or are they just going to continue doing what they want?

Vaughn seems to hint as much.

"I’d say this is more like Casino Royale than [JJ Abrams] Star Trek. If you think about it, Casino Royale just totally rebooted Bond — they kept what they wanted and got rid of what didn’t work. You sort of saw Bond become a double O for the first time and yet it didn’t seem to matter [what they changed]. I think my rule is to make a stand alone movie that is as good as possible and do as many nods and winks towards the comics and the other films, but not get tied up in knots worrying about that."

So, in other words, another hatchet job that will leave fans of the comics dissatisfied and Bryan Singer's X-Men 2 the high water mark of the franchise.

What's your take to the pictures that have been released? What do you anticipate from X-Men: First Class? Are you optimistic about the film or do you have reservations? Do you think Fox and Vaughn can salvage the negative emerging perception of the film? Leave your comments below!

Super Bowl Trailers Are Going To Be Super & First Look At Magneto From ‘X-Men: First Class’

The Super Bowl is always filled with exciting moments, amazing feats and big laughs.

Of course, I’m just talking about the commercials … does anyone actually watch it for the football anymore?

The Hollywood Reporter has gotten it’s hands on the complete list of movie trailers that will air interspersed among The Super Bowl’s bread and butter – commercials for boner pills and soda. The list is massive and looks like it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.

Click below the jump to find out which movies will have trailers shown during The Super Bowl on February 6.

Also, late last night, /Film got an exclusive with X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn on how he felt about the “leaked” cast photo that appeared on the web some time ago. Long story short, Vaughn did not like the image as it looked like it was photoshop and as far he knows, it is not an official image from FOX.

To make it up for the fans and show that he is doing what he can and is not “bastardizing” the X-Men franchise, he revealed two photos. One photo has Michael Fassbender as Magneto, wearing the trademark helmet that I believe fans will approve of and the other image show James McAvoy as Professor X. Both images are available after the jump.

The movies that will have trailers during this year’s Super Bowl are:

* Super 8
* Transformers: Dark of the Moon
* Thor
* Captain America: The First Avenger
* Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
* Cowboys & Aliens
* Limitless
* Just Go With It
* Battle: Los Angeles
* Priest
* The Eagle
* Rango
* Kung Fu Panda 2
* Take Me Home Tonight

X-MEN Try to CLASS It Up
By Devin Faraci | January 20, 2011

After the first cast image from X-Men: First Class leaked early yesterday (which was a real and official image, no matter what the film’s own director says!), there was a bit of negative buzz. The image didn’t look so hot, and Fox quickly responded with some new pics, including the Magneto in helmet image above.

Head to Slashfilm to see an image of young Xavier, and go to Hero Complex to see three more images. Finally the first teaser poster has appeared at Ain’t It Cool.

First Pics of Marvels X-Men First Class

We have heard the buzz about this movie... And when we say buzz, we mean the very audible apathetic whining that fans have had towards a new prequelish incarnation of the X-men. So, we were not expecting much until these new images from the film popped up. It was quite surprising to see that this X-men film is REALLY taking it back to the old school.

Now, this is the first big studio film for director Matthew Vaughn, and the direction that he seems to be taking for this film already appears to be very fresh departure from the crowded train wreck that was X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

The cast is headlined by James McAvoy(Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe, Wanted) as Professor Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender(Jonah Hex,300) as Magneto, January Jones(Mad Men) as Emma Frost, and Kevin Bacon(Are you kidding? It's KEVIN BACON!) as villain Sebastian Shaw

Details on the films story are very few, but apparently X-Men First Class serves as something of a prequel & a reboot. According to Vaughn and the films producer Brian Singer there are elements that will pay homage to the other X-Men films but this is a film that will stand on it's own.

So, it the world ready for a superhero film that is also a 'period piece' set in the 1960's? Only time will tell, and the production is still finishing some reshoots but expect to attend X-Men: First Class when it hits theater on June 3rd.

X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X-Men: First Class Stuff
January 20, 2011 | by The Infamous Billy The Kidd |

x men first class X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X Men: First Class Stuff

First impressions are hard to break, especially when they go down unfavorably… but that isn’t going to stop 20th Century Fox from trying to erase the first look at X-MEN: FIRST CLASS you had from your mind by bombarding you with the film’s first teaser poster, a bunch of interviews, a few official stills from the movie, and a hi-res version of that character roll-out that got you worried with the quickness over its unimpressive Photoshop quality.

Let’s start with what happened though with that first image that was leaked. According to JoBlo.com, an early comp of the picture was sent over to MSN, who was supposed to debut the image along with an early interview with Michael Fassbender discussing the film. But MSN added it to their public gallery early before receiving the final hi-res version, someone grabbed it, everyone saw it, and the rest, as they say, is history. So Fox has been in severe damage control over the past 48 hours trying to fix MSN’s f&#!-up, as fans everywhere have been bitching about the cast photo’s awfulness.

First off, MSN has replaced their mistake with a hi-res version of the cast photo split in half, to give you a better look at each member.

x men first class cast 2 X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X Men: First Class Stuff

It may be a much cleaner and crisper version of the picture, but there’s still something that just looks off about this whole thing. It still reeks of Photoshop, with some of the actors’ and actresses’ heads looking like they were placed on random bodies by someone with a graphic design degree. And Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique looks bizarre… and January Jones feels very Victoria’s Secret Angel to borrow from my colleague Genevieve Blaber, on top of the fact that her head tilt is completely unnatural. Everything that didn’t work with the first image only seems to be magnified by giving us a better look at the flaws in the whole thing.

Moving on…

The Los Angeles Times has interviews with Matthew Vaughn, producer Bryan Singer, and some of the cast talking on-set of the film, which is still shooting as it races to make its June 3 release date. Accompanying their promotion of the film as something that should be able to stand on its own as an origin story when compared to the original trilogy of X-MEN films are a few official stills from the film, which almost seem to be trying too hard to recreate the 1960s time period the movie is supposed to take place in. Is it me, or does the Kevin Bacon-January Jones picture feel like something out of a swingers party?

x men first class 2 X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X Men: First Class Stuff

x men first class 3 X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X Men: First Class Stuff

Continuing Fox’s onslaught of what they’re hoping is more positive FIRST CLASS imagery, SlashFilm has a few more stills from the flick, including a pre-bald look at James McAvoy as Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender sporting the Magneto helmet. That goes along with their talk with Matthew Vaughn where he tears some new assholes and gets on the side of fans disappointed in the cast photo… mainly because he was pissed with its appearance, too (or at least that’s the public stance he’s taking).

“I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…”

Also, an official synopsis for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS has been released as well, vaguely filling you in on what to expect from the new X-Men origin story:

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.

And, finally (**deep breath**), Ain’t-It-Cool News premiered the first teaser poster for the film, with our friend Harry Knowles recovering from emergency spinal surgery (we wish you well in getting better, dude) in time to get Bryan Singer’s blessing to debut the initial one sheet…

x men first class teaser poster X Marks The Spot For A Treasure Of X Men: First Class Stuff

Whew… there you have it all. It’s been a whirlwind of activity around X-MEN: FIRST CLASS since that first image started an uproar, and this is basically everything that’s come out since then in Fox’s attempts to squash the outrage. I absolutely love the look of the first teaser poster… but right now, that’s about it. I can’t help it. That first cast photo has really cast a lot of doubt in my mind about whether or not FIRST CLASS is going to come off well. I have plenty of faith in what Matthew Vaughn is capable of, and I am hopeful FIRST CLASS is good. I want it to be good, so don’t go assuming I’m hating on the flick for no reason. THE LAST STAND and WOLVERINE were terrible X-Men movies. I mean, they sucked badly. So I’d like to see the franchise return to being good once more. I’m just worried that going the origin/prequel route is going to run into major problems, especially when it comes to essentially being compared to the first 2 movies and the cast that inhabited a lot of the mutant roles in those films. I hope my skepticism is proven wrong… I really want this to be great… and awesome… and recapture what an X-Men movie should be. Once again, first impressions are hard to break.

Official X-MEN: FIRST CLASS photos revealed, new poster
Written by Scott News, Poster, Stills Jan 20, 2011

Apparently Fox screwed up. The X-MEN: FIRST CLASS photos that hit the web 2 days ago were not Matthew Vaughn approved and now he has set the record straight. Vaughn called up everyone’s favorite movie geek Peter Sciretta (/Film) and gave his the low down:

I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…

He went on to say a few more bits but you can jump over to our good friends at /Film to read it all. What Vaughn also did was give the world 2 official images from the movie, above showing Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto and below James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier pre-wheel chair (not that you can really tell from the photo):

Now I feel at ease after seeing these photos because before I was livid…ok, not really but that’s what I am supposed to say right? Here is a poster as well:

http://www.bloggingwiththestars.com/michael-fassbender-was-sent-out-to-appease-the-x-men-fanboys.html

January 20, 2011
Michael Fassbender was sent out to appease the X-Men fanboys

As I talked about yesterday, an image of the cast of X-Men: First Class was released a few days ago, and the lack of quality of the image seemed to piss off the fan boys. Fangirls were also disappointed – that stars Michael Fassbinder (Magneto) and James McAvoy (Xavier) were not making out, or embracing, or looking at each other tenderly. What? Fangirls are all over the homoeroticism, and with the Fassdong and McAvoy sharing a screen together, there better be something sexy and intimate for the ladies.

Anyway, people were confused by the poor quality and general budget-ness of the first image, so the studio sent out three nicer promotional images to tease the fans. They also sent out Michael Fassbender to give an interview. The whole piece (here) is all about X-Men, and there’s nothing about the Fassdong (boo!), but I still enjoyed it:

MSN: What drew you to play this character and take on the challenge of assuming a role established by Ian McKellen?
Michael Fassbender: Hopefully I won’t disappoint the fan base out there, because I know that what Ian McKellen did sort of latched onto a lot of imaginations and was very successful. But what drew me was the script and Matthew Vaughn and the fact that James McAvoy was going to be playing young Xavier. I thought it was a fresh take on the whole story. I’ve never been a big comic book enthusiast, but I thought it was an interesting concept to go back to when they were both friends and initially came together.

After you signed on for the role, did a box come in the mail packed with hundreds of “X-Men” comics for you to peruse?
Yes, it did, and I got knee-deep into them once I got involved. That was all my source material, because it’s all there in the comic books in terms of a backstory and formulating the character. I did also watch the other films and took notes from those, but took most of my references from the comic books.

As someone coming to this from a sort of open perspective and not really being a fan, what did you learn about this character?
He’s such a complex character, really, and the idea of him being a villain is interesting considering his history (Lehnsherr is a Holocaust survivor who lost his family in the camps, and later lost his wife and daughter) … he’s a very solitary individual, and the pain and grief that’s gone on even before we meet him in this film is an interesting pool of information to draw from, in coming up with this Machiavellian character for whom the ends justified the means. You can see where he’s coming from. Human beings don’t have the greatest track record in what they’ve done throughout history, so his point of view is, “Well, we are the next stage of evolution — (humans) are to us what Neanderthals were to Homo sapiens.”

He’s always been a fascinating character because he’s not completely wrong, but thinks that everything he does is right, no matter what the cost.
He’s an extremist, and that’s always a dangerous place to be. By the time we leave him at the end of this movie, he’s become very clear about what he wants and his decisions and his game plan.

Early word on the movie’s story line draws parallels between Xavier and Lehnsherr and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in terms of the methods they use to achieve their goals. Did that comparison come out for you while making the film?
You don’t set out to play these things that way, but it’s a good parallel to have in the back of one’s mind, as something to take from real life as a reference. I didn’t study any Malcolm X videos or anything like that. But it clarifies where both these characters are coming from. Hopefully by the end of the film, the audience is like, “Damn, why didn’t these two guys stay together?” They have enough in common and not in common to keep each other in check, and hopefully the audience will feel like they could have worked together for the greater good.

The words “reboot” and “prequel” are thrown around so much these days, and are sometimes even used interchangeably. Is this a reboot of the entire “X-Men” franchise, or a true prequel where you could watch this and then sit down and watch the three earlier films and see a connection?
I think the fundamentals are the same. The main thread of the story is still the same. I don’t really know how to answer the question because I haven’t seen this one yet, so I haven’t had a chance to watch it side by side with the other ones and see if they’re relative to each other. Hopefully they are, I think, but also we want to do something fresh as well and open a whole new chapter with this without totally betraying what was laid down before.

The film is set in the ’60s and Vaughn has said he wanted to capture a certain look — specifically referencing the James Bond films of that era. He has also said that the costumes will be more like the comics’ versions and not the black rubber look of the other “X-Men” films. Can you comment on both of those ideas?
There’s a scene where they just sort of transformed this hall in London into Buenos Aires Airport, and I just looked around this mock airport and said to myself, “My God, I’ve just had a feeling of being in the ’60s.” From the colors to the costume designs to the production design itself, there’s a sort of nostalgia in the air when you look around the room. It’s just from my own perception of the ’60s, and all that came with it in terms of the music and the fashions and so forth, but all of that comes across in the visual references that we all have. All of that is there to encapsulate the feeling of that era, for sure. As for our costumes, we went back and forth on so many things. We added things that worked in the comics, took them away again, and stripped them down again. … When it came to the Magneto suit, you know, there’s various stages of what has been done with it, but you will have something that is traditional to the comics. There is a helmet (laughs), which is of course essential to keep Charlie-boy out of my head, and the colors are also kept traditional to the comics, that sort of red and purple. I don’t know if I’m giving you too much, but I’ll say it anyway (laughs).

Fans of the “X-Men” franchise were not completely happy with the way that the third film, “X-Men: The Last Stand,” was handled, even though it was financially successful, and there were grumblings about the “Wolverine” film as well. Is there a sense that you’ve set out to earn back the fans’ trust with this one?
I certainly hope so. My face is gonna be up there and my name is gonna be attached to it. I’ve got a lot of faith in Matthew, and everyone is very passionate and working very hard to earn back any trust that’s waned a little bit from the last film.

This interview is one of the first of the early stages of prerelease publicity for the film, which has been kept very much under wraps until now. Any other thoughts that you want to get out there about the movie at this point?
Well, I just hope that this and some of the photos that are being released will whet the fans’ appetites for the summer. Hopefully they’ll be excited.

Yeah, Fassbender is a pro, and he cares about making the fanboys happy. But I still have a bad feeling about this – and I think it’s interesting that the studio didn’t sent McAvoy out as well to do interviews. I wonder if they tried and McAvoy refused? Perhaps because McAvoy knows this thing might be a train wreck? I want to believe it could be good though – I loved two of Matthew Vaughn’s films, Layer Cake and Kick-Ass. I wish he would make another movie like Layer Cake, honestly, and stop messing around with these big-budget messes.

Oh, these images come from the Los Angeles Times – they got an interview from the set with Matthew Vaughn. It’s an interesting read too.

Now We're Shooting With Mind Bullets

Big-Time Updates And New, Better Images For X-Men: First Class / TK

Trade News | January 20, 2011

Well, first things first: We, just like everyone else, basically got suckered yesterday by the promo pic for X-Men: First Class, which was either very early, very awkward promo art, or simply a shameless and hacktastic photoshop job, depending on who you ask (Matthew Vaughn has called the whole thing basically bullshit). The response from readers both here and elsewhere was overwhelmingly negative, so it’s no surprise that Fox quickly released some official photos, courtesy of the LA Times. Three of them came out, and if nothing else, I’m digging the retro feel of it (it’s set in the 1960’s) and the costume and makeup design is excellent. In an interview with Moviefone, Kevin Bacon had the following to say about the setting:

The backdrop is the Cuban Missile Crisis, so it’s a little earlier than the Civil Rights era. I don’t think JFK is a character in the movie, but the idea of the possibility of thermonuclear war in our own backyard is there. And also the fallout from the Holocaust is still there, which you’ll remember is in the first film.

Interesting, and I like the thought process.

Anyway, first is this shot, featuring Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw and January Jones as Emma Frost, both members of the sinister Hellfire Club.

I like what they’ve done with Shaw — the pantaloons and ponytail look would never have worked, to be honest. Bacon also spilled a bit about his character in the same interview:

You don’t see much [of his backstory] in the movie, but he’s kind of a self-made man. He lost his father as a young man, made his first million by the time he was 30 and first billion by time he was 40. He’s a very powerful billionaire and also, as it turns out, a mutant. He’s the leader of the Hellfire Club, which is a nightclub for the rich and extremely powerful. And he has a plot to take over the world, so that’s really fun. He’s incredibly good at manipulating people and at taking whatever kind of energy or ability they have and using it to his advantage, like if he’s talking to a German, he’s fluent in German. He’s very charming and able to get whatever he wants.

Anyway, next is this shot of Xavier (James McAvoy) and the pre-Magneto Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender). Nothing fancy here, except that, you know, it’s James f#%@#&! McAvoy and Michael f#%@#&! Fassbender, which is inherently awesome.

Finally, a shot of the some of the heroes gathered together. I love that they’re not in costume, which is much more in line with the philosophy behind the film (Vaughn’s stated that costumes will not appear for the majority of the film: “The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because f&#! it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60’s James Bond…”):

Nice.

Lastly, Vaughn recently gave the boys at Slashfilm two more images, and these are a little more interesting. One features McAvoy’s Xavier doin’ his psychic thing:

And this one, with Fassbender’s Magneto doing his thing… complete with early model helmet!

Of course, there’s still plenty to worry about — there have been numerous reshoots, the film is on a ridiculously tight schedule and director Matthew Vaughn (Stardust) has been lamenting the rushed schedule. But this certainly makes me feel better than I did yesterday.

Oh, and one last thing:

Two More X-Men First Class Pics Including Magneto in his Helmet

Yesterday I said it was falling mutants, and it looks like today it’s still falling mutants. Apparently Fox and Matthew Vaughn are freaking out about all that negative reaction to that bad photoshoppy looking photo of the cast in costume that came out on Tuesday, and are apparently trying to pretend like some kid in his basement made it up and it wasn’t theirs, when I think everyone knows better. In an attempt at damage control, the studio have been releasing “official” images and teaser poster left and right since. The latest — two new pics of Michael Fassbender as Magneto including helmet and James McAvoy as Professor X, doing his mind thing.

“X-Men: First Class” charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and 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. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

Starring Michael Fassbender, January Jones, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till, Zoë Kravitz, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones, and directed by Matthew Vaughn.

X-Men: First Class – Official Teaser Poster and Images; Plus Details from Kevin Bacon and Michael Fassbender

Just yesterday, we brought you an image from the Matthew Vaughn directed X-Men: First Class that appeared on MSN and then vanished, propagated throughout the internet, some people called it a fake and then 20th Century Fox said it was not an official image and requested that some sites remove it.

Aside from Fox asking to remove it, even though they said it wasn’t an official image, after viewing the EXIF data, I seriously doubted that it was a fake. I thought that it was likely an official image that was released too soon, and it looks as though I was right (that happens sometimes).

20th Century Fox has now officially released the high-resolution version of that image (which magically reappeared at the same MSN url), along with the official teaser poster for the film that producer, Bryan Singer sent to the HeadGeek himself. Check them out below!

Update: Apparently director Matthew Vaughn heard about all of the fanboy groaning over the team image above and sent a couple of new images, along with a message to Peter over at /Film. Vaughn said,

“I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…

Vaughn continued,

“I’m a fan of X-Men. We’re not bastardizing X-Men, I’m trying to get them back to being whole again.”

In other First Class news… 20th Century Fox recently ponied up some cool “official” images from the film, and Matthew Vaughn, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Kevin Bacon have all given recent interviews where they spoke about their forthcoming X-Film. Check everything out below!

Director Matthew Vaughn was interviewed by the LATimes near the end of principal photography on the film and had this to say:

“I’m at that stage where I feel like a boxer against the ropes. I’m just throwing punches and taking them as they come and making sure I don’t hit the canvas. We’re filming at the moment, we’ve a lot to get done. I’ve never worked under such time pressure. The good thing about the independent world is I never even knew if I was going to get distribution. I’m used to finishing a film and then crossing your fingers that someone is going to like it. This is totally doing it the other way around. We’ve definitely got a release date and we’ve got to make it.”

McAvoy spoke with the LATimes about his character, Professor Charles Xavier:

“This isn’t a reboot, so I’m not replacing anyone, in which case you might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from what had been done before. This is a prequel, so I’m the same character, just younger, but the challenge for me – and for Michael Fassbender – is to show the same person in a different place in their life; to show someone before they’re this bad guy, before they’re this saint. Charles wasn’t always a … monk, this selfless, sexless monk that he becomes.”

Michael Fassbender spoke to MSN about living up to Ian McKellen‘s earlier performances as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, and the choice of mutants in the film:

“Hopefully I won’t disappoint the fan base out there, because I know that what Ian McKellen did sort of latched onto a lot of imaginations and was very successful. But what drew me was the script and Matthew Vaughn and the fact that James McAvoy was going to be playing young Xavier. I thought it was a fresh take on the whole story. I’ve never been a big comic book enthusiast, but I thought it was an interesting concept to go back to when they were both friends and initially came together.”

“The cool thing about this movie is that I think it does deal with each individual mutant, and the ones they’ve chosen are all very much individuals and unique personalities with unique gifts. What’s interesting is that we’ve gone back to a period where the mutants don’t know that there are other people out there like them. They just think they’re freaks and outcasts from society … all of these new characters are fearful of their gifts and uncomfortable and misplaced in society, so hopefully when they all sort of come together and realize they’re not alone and feel more comfortable in their own skin, that’s a discovery for all the characters that you experience.”

Kevin Bacon spoke with Moviefone about his character, Sebastian Shaw and the 1960s era production designs:

“You don’t see much [of his backstory] in the movie, but he’s kind of a self-made man. He lost his father as a young man, made his first million by the time he was 30 and first billion by time he was 40. He’s a very powerful billionaire and also, as it turns out, a mutant. He’s the leader of the Hellfire Club, which is a nightclub for the rich and extremely powerful. And he has a plot to take over the world, so that’s really fun. He’s incredibly good at manipulating people and at taking whatever kind of energy or ability they have and using it to his advantage, like if he’s talking to a German, he’s fluent in German. He’s very charming and able to get whatever he wants.”

“I’ve got some pretty nice pads and I’m kind of slick in that way. I don’t think it’s visually, in terms of camera moves, it’s not trying to recreate that. But it has an element of that. The set design is fantastic. I’ve only seen the sets that I’ve been on and they are really interesting and very ’60s modern and super cool, and beautiful. I have one set that’s kind of like an inner sanctum and then I also have a submarine; the inside of the sub has elements of my other set. I have my own set of style and wanted to translate it over to my board room and stuff. It’s great. I love the way it looks.”

Synopsis:

“X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and 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.

In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

The film stars James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Till, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Edi Gathegi, Jason Flemyng, January Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Bill Milner, Michael Fassbender, Álex González, Oliver Platt and Ray Wise.

X-Men: First Class is slated to hit theaters on June 3rd, 2011.

‘X-Men: First Class’ Movie Stills – PICS
Published on January 20, 2011 by Cara Harrington

‘X-Men: First Class’ hits theaters on June 3, 2011. The entire cast has fresh faces for the prequel to the comic book fueled series. James McAvoy will be Charles Xavier while Michael Fassbender will be Erik Lehnsherr who is better known as Magneto. Filling in for Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen is a tall order, but James explains that the film’s intention is to give the back story.

Via Hero Complex:

“This isn’t a reboot, so I’m not replacing anyone, in which case you might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from what had been done before. This is a prequel, so I’m the same character, just younger, but the challenge for me – and for Michael — is to show the same person in a different place in their life; to show someone before they’re this bad guy, before they’re this saint. Charles wasn’t always a … monk, this selfless, sexless monk that he becomes.”

I love McAvoy but I am lukewarm about this installment. January Jones will be a new character, Emma Frost, and be joined by Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw. The plot details haven’t been divulged but the basic premise will be the rift that creates a good versus bad divide between Xavier and Magneto. Thoughts?

Catwoman and X-Men

I often feel like I'm neglecting this blog. It probably has to do a lot with the fact that I've fully embraced Twitter, and I'm a lazy person. It's much easier to just tweet, "d00d! Anne Hathaway is Catwoman!" rather than sit down and write a whole blog entry about how Anne Hathaway is playing Catwoman.
Hey! Did you hear? In the next Batman movie, Anne Hathaway is playing Catwoman.

First let me say, I'm thrilled that they're doing Catwoman for the next Batman film. That was always my dream for the next film, as we can finally erase the memory of that horrible Halle Berry film. That being said though, I question whether Hathaway has enough..."bad ass-itude" to be Catwoman. But hey, we all scoffed when Heath Ledger was announced as the Joker, and look how well that turned out.

But she's not the only villain in the forthcoming Batman film. It was also announced that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane. You may remember Hardy as Eames, the suave, bald, British dude in Leondardo diCaprio's gang in Inception. (My fellow trekkies probably remember him as Shinzon, Picard's evil clone in Star Trek Nemesis.) Of course, this has the geeks scratching their heads as, in the comics, Bane is an 8-foot tall hulking mass of muscle, and Hardy is not.

The next Batman movie is entitled The Dark Knight Rises. Christopher Nolan, who did Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Inception, is back as director. It's scheduled to hit theatres in June of 2012.

But that's not all! As we skip across the street from DC Comics to Marvel, we have our first picture of the cast of X-Men: First Class. Yup, another X-Men movie. This prequel tale, set in the 1960s, follows the adventures of a young Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto, as the found the School for the Gifted, do battle with the villainous Hellfire Club, and eventually set out on the paths that turn them into arch-enemies.

So here's the pic!

From left to right:
Michael Fassbender as Young Magneto

Rose Byrne as Moira McTaggert

January Jones as Emma Frost

Jason Flemyng as Azazel (Nightcrawler's father)

Nicholas Hoult as Young Beast

Lucas Till as Havoc

Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore

Jennifer Lawrence as Young Mystique

James MacAvoy as Young Charles Xavier

I'm actually kind of giddy that this is set in the 1960s. One of the concepts I love is "period superheroes," and it's why The Rocketeer and The Shadow are two of my favourite guilty pleasures. That being said though, I've already heard from lots of folks that the X-Men franchise may have run its course.

Matthew Vaughn, director of Stardust and Kick-Ass, is the director of this one. Bryan Singer, director of the first two X-Men films, is on board as a producer. It hits theatres this June.

And hey! Help encourage my laziness. Click here to follow me on Twitter.

Statistics show that 50% of bloggers have two or more blogs. I originally posted this on my work blog, which you can click here to read.

Yet More Images From X-Men: First Class – More Characters, More Context
Thursday, January 20, 2011 , Posted by Tyree at 5:54 AM

The movie posters promise that “X-Men: First Class” will be released
June 3, but on Tuesday cameras were still rolling on the Fox film’s set
and director Matthew Vaughn, making his biggest major studio feature
film to date, sounded like a man running out of time. “I’m at that
stage where I feel like a boxer against the ropes,” the director said
as his crew prepared for the next shot on a location set in Long Beach.
“I’m just throwing punches and taking them as they come and making sure
I don’t hit the canvas.”


In the pages of Marvel Comics, the X-Men have been the ultimate
outsiders for decades — even other superheroes view the strange mutant
crew with mistrust, prejudice and disdain. So it’s fitting that “First
Class,” the fifth Hollywood adventure for the heroes, will arrive in
theaters this summer with so much to prove and plenty of doubters. For
the all-new cast (led by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender), the
challenge is to replace the familiar faces of the franchise; for
producer Bryan Singer, the challenge is to recapture the affection of
comic-book movie fans; and for Vaughn, the challenge is, well, to
actually finish making the film.

> Yet More Images From X-Men: First Class – More Characters, More Context - Photo posted in The TV and Movie Spot | Sign in and leave a comment below!


“We’re filming at the moment, we’ve a lot to get done,” said a weary
Vaughn, whose credits include memorable but modest-grossing indie fare
like “Kick-Ass” and “Layer Cake.” “I’ve never worked under such time
pressure. The good thing about the independent world is I never even
knew if I was going to get distribution. I’m used to finishing a film
and then crossing your fingers that someone is going to like it. This
is totally doing it the other way around. We’ve definitely got a
release date and we’ve got to make it.”


Vaughn is famous for firebrand candor and droll wit, and despite the
hand-wringing right now among some Fox executives, the British
filmmaker isn’t turning meek under the pressure. Asked if he’s
concerned about the glut of superhero film competition this summer —
with “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Green Lantern” and ”Thor” –
Vaughn said that, if anything, it’s the other guys who should be
nervous. “With ‘Green Lantern,’ I don’t know about that one, I couldn’t
get my head around the trailer, to be honest … look, I will say the
following: X-Men as a brand is bigger than Captain America, Thor and
the Green Lantern, all put together.”


And that is the X factor that Fox is counting on. The four mutant-hero
movies to date have pulled in $1.53 billion in worldwide box office,
and even when the hard-core fans of the comics grumbled about the
quality of some of the movies (as they did with the Brett Ratner’s 2006
installment “X-Men: The Last Stand”), many of them still bought their
tickets just so they could join in the intense Internet debates. The
opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s apathy — and to date there has been
no apathy when it comes to the X-Men characters that created a
publishing bonanza for Marvel in the 1980s and 1990s.


“First Class” is being described as an origin story by the studio, and
it is set in the 1960s, the same decade that artist Jack Kirby and
writer Stan Lee introduced the uncanny X-Men into the cosmic melodrama
of their expanding Marvel universe. McAvoy is taking on the role of
young Charles Xavier, the leader of the X-Men, and Fassbender is Erik
Lehnsherr, the man who will become the evil mastermind Magneto. McAvoy
and Fassbender are taking over movie roles originated by Patrick
Stewart and Ian McKellen, respectively, two esteemed actors who are
practically revered among sci-fi and fantasy fans for their respective
work in the ”Star Trek” and”The Lord of the Rings“ universes.

McAvoy has flipped between roles of art-house acclaim (“Atonement,”
“The Last King of Scotland“) and work in special-effects blockbusters
(the first ”Chronicles of Narnia” film, “Wanted“) and he said that
Stewart’s work as the aged, bald and wheelchair-bound Xavier is
something he views as a counterpoint, not as competition.


“This isn’t a reboot, so I’m not replacing anyone, in which case you
might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from
what had been done before,” McAvoy said on Monday during a break from a
rescue scene that required water-tank work. “This is a prequel, so I’m
the same character, just younger, but the challenge for me – and for
Michael — is to show the same person in a different place in their
life; to show someone before they’re this bad guy, before they’re this
saint. Charles wasn’t always a … monk, this selfless, secksless monk
that he becomes.”


The plot of this film is still under wraps, but it presents a world
where superpowered mutants are living in secret and don’t face the
public scrutiny and prejudice that are central themes in the earlier
films, which are primarily set in the modern day. The friendship of
future foes Xavier and Lehnsherr is the heart of the film — Singer says
the two have a common cause and different approaches and he even used
the life trajectories of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X
as a sort of shorthand for their veering paths. Despite rumors to the
contrary, Vaughn said the movie will be the first X-Men film without
the most famous face of the franchise, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, and
key characters such as Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey give way to new
screen arrivals such as Emma Frost (January Jones), Azazel (Jason
Flemyng), Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) and Havok (Lucas Till).

“It is an excellent cast,” Singer said. He added that no one is more
aware of the high-bar set by McKellen and Stewart. “I’m very sensitive
to it. Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy are two of the best actors
working today and that was needed to fill those shoes. Short of
digitally recreating Patrick and Ian in their 20s I cant think of
anyone who would be more equipped for this than these two guys. The
challenge of that is what attracted James, I’m sure of it. That’s why
the guy who starred in ‘Atonement’ would want to play a comic-book
character in the first place because it was a role est@blished by a
really fine actor.”


Singer directed the first two “X-Men” films — which many observers cite
as the starting point of more sophisticated treatment of superheroes in
cinema — and then left the franchise to direct “Superman Returns,” a
movie that was, on paper, a commercial success but culturally and
artistically failed to capture lightning in a bottle as the filmmaker
had hoped. Now he’s returning as a producer for this “X-Men”
installment and still hopes to direct another X-movie in the near
future. He praised Vaughn’s vision and attention to detail and said the
problems the production is now facing are merely intriguing challenges
that will be overcome.


“The biggest challenge is introducing an audience to these characters
in a different time – characters the audience is familiar with but now
see played by younger actors and in a story taking place in a different
time. We have to est@blish this universe. We had the challenge with the
first ‘X-Men’ film, which came at a time when there were no comic-book
movies [of this sort] and no template to launch from and yet you’ve got
to do that. You have to put your characters out there and introduce
them to a quizzical public that sort of recognizes them. But that very
thing is the exciting part of it.”

Even MORE X-Men: First Class Pictures Alive!
- Posted by Matthew Meylikhov on Thursday, January 20, 2011

Talk about creating a healthy dose of internet buzz, eh?

Two more pictures have arrived on the 'net, this time starring everyone's favorite Magneto (above) and Professor X (below) as they are to be portrayed by their new actors, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy respectively. The above shot gives us the first look at Magneto's ever so famous helmet (which he constructs as a way to keep Xavier out of his head) and the below show gives us our first look at Xavier actually using his power. The below shot actually comes out to be the stronger of the two, because with it you get a much clearer sense of McAvoy as Xavier, and the similarities in facial features between him and Patrick Stewart become a little more apparent. The above picture, while making Fassbender look like a badass, does look a tad odd due to the size of the helmet - but considering how awesome Fassbender is, it's safe to put your trust in him (I swear).

Furthermore, as reported at Bleeding Cool via Slashfilm, director Matthew Vaughan promises that the odd suit that Magneto is wearing is not a permanent one, saying that they are "hardly" in the movie. He also confirms that the cast image that sent out did not come from the Fox camp, but that it is legit and quite confusing as to where it came from (I hope this doesn't mean another Wolverine leak around the corner...)

Either way, enjoy the images. The film is busting out stills for us now, and with the (now 5) official shots we have and a teaser trailer assumedly on the way, things are looking good for the mutants.

OneMetal.com NEWS:
X-Men First Class Images Revealed

After the travesty that was Wolverine, it’s safe to say that few people were clamouring for another X-Men film, but a brand new film with input from Bryan Singer, directed by the man that brought Kick-Ass to the screens, playing out as a 60′s spy film and featuring a cast of actors who aren’t in the Black Eyed Peas, that’s a different matter altogether.

Magneto, wearing a Grant Morrison-style X-Men uniform? Come on nerds. You know you want this.

Directed by Matthew Vaughan, who was slated to direct X3 until he fell out with the studio, and produced by Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-men films (and was slated to direct X3 until he fell out with the studio – this happens a lot with Fox), the film certainly has more promise than can reasonably be expected from what is basically the fifth film in the franchise. The cast is looking strong too – let’s meet them, shall we?

From left to right: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel (Nightcrawler’s dad), Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel (presumably the character from Grant Morrison’s run, as opposed to the big winged fella), Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Professor Xavier. Phew.

You’ll notice they’re all in snazzy proto X-men uniforms, (except Azazel and Emma Frost, because they’re a bit boo-hiss), presumably because First Class is to focus on the rupturing of the friendship between Xavier and Magneto, leading to the formation of their opposing groups. Not pictured is the other antagonist of the movie, Sebastian Shaw, played by Kevin Bacon, doing his best Elvis impression below:

In the comics, Sebastian Shaw was the head of the Hellfire Club, the organisation that pop up every now and then as adversaries of the X-Men. Their biggest story moment was unwittingly causing the increasingly powerful and unstable Jean Grey to unleash the Dark Phoenix, thereby nearly destroying the universe. The berks. Emma Frost is also a member of this sociopathic social club, which sometimes comes into conflict with her ‘leading the X-Men’ duties.

Full-sized versions of the images, plus a few more in the gallery below.

X-Men: First Class News Explosion!
Jan 20th, 2011 | By Aaron

by Aaron Einhorn
Remember that X-Men: First Class picture that was posted yesterday? Well, in the 24 hours since it first showed up, we’ve gotten a ton of new images from the film.

First up, MSN.com posted the hi-res version of the image, split into two. They also provided a slightly more detailed list of the cast. (Click on the photos to enlarge)

(left to right) Michael Fassbender stars as Magneto, Rose Byrne plays Dr. Moira MacTaggert, January Jones plays The White Queen Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng plays Azazel, Nicholas Hoult plays Beast, Lucas Till plays Havok, Zoe Kravitz plays Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence plays Mystique, James McAvoy stars as Professor Charles Xavier.

Following that, Ain’t It Cool News posted the first look at the Teaser Poster for the film.

But wait! There’s more! LA Times also posted three stills from the film, all looking very dramatic. This comes alongside a set visit report.

Finally, /Film spoke to director Matthew Vaughn about the film, where he clarified that the photo was not supposed to be released, he confirmed that the costumes would be the blue and yellow – although they won’t appear much in the film, and he discussed the general tone of the movie.

He also provided two more photos – one showing Charles Xavier being all telepathic, and the second featuring Michael Fassbender’s Magneto wearing the iconic helmet.

Whew. Is that enough X-Men: First Class coverage for one day?

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.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, X-Men: First Class stars Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Dr. Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier. Edi Gathigi, Oliver Platt, Ray Wise and Kevin Bacon also appear in the film.

X-Men: First Class evolves its’ way into theatres June 3, 2011.

New X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Pictures, A Poster And High Res Cast Photos

Posted on 20 January 2011 by Rich Drees

Are we seeing a planned tsunami of public relations for the upcoming X-Men: First Class this week or is studio Twentieth Century Fox engaging in some fast damage control.It turns out that the first cast photo which hit online Tuesday was something that director Matthew Vaughn hadn’t approved. As he told SlashFilm-

I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it.

To compensate, Vaughn passed along two new pictures from the film. One of Michael Fassbender as Magneto in the villain’s classic helmet and one of James McAvoy as Professor Xavier. (Click on any picture in this article for a bigger version.)

Vaughn also stated perhaps hinted at the plot when he described the film’s 1960s setting when he said, “Imagine the Cuban Missile crisis and discovering that mutants exist, both at the same time.” Intriguing.

And Vaughn wasn’t the only one working the PR phones yesterday. Producer Bryan Singer gave Aint It Cool News‘ Harry Knowles a call to briefly chat about the movie and to send along the first teaser poster to be released.

Meanwhile, the LA Times yesterday ran a set visit piece that features three new photos from the film. As we can see below, we get another look at most of the cast, albeit in their civilian attire this time, a picture of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as Professor Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr a.k.a. Magneto that works to draw a parallel to similar scenes shared between Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in the original X-Men trilogy and our first look at Kevin Bacon as the mysterious Hellfire Club’s Sebastian Shaw having a conversation with January Jones’s Emma Frost in a leather cat suit that looks like the white version of the one worn by Diana Rigg on the 1960s British series The Avengers.

And finally, MSN has released a higher resolution look at the Vaughn-hated cast photo from earlier in the week. The banner photo has been split into two parts.

Fox Releases First Official Photos of 'X-Men: First Class'
20th Century Fox has answered people's craving for a sneak peek to "X-Men: First Class". The studio has given away three stills which are debuted exclusively by Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex. Unlike in the previously leaked cast photo which features the characters in X-Men costumes, this time they are all seen wearing daily outfits.

One photo features Caleb Landry Jones' Sean Cassidy/Banshee, Michael Fassbender's Erik Lensherr/Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence's Raven Darkholme/Mystique, Rose Byrne's Dr. Moira McTaggert, Nicholas Hoult's Hank McCoy/Beast, James McAvoy's Charles Xavier and Lucas Till's Alex Summers/Havoc together. Kevin Bacon's Sebastian Shaw and January Jones' Emma Frost are seen sitting side by side in another image, while Xavier and Lensherr are pictured in front of a chess board.

"X-Men: First Class" is currently re-shooting and director Mathew Vaughn shares this to Hero Complex, "We're filming at the moment, we've a lot to get done. I've never worked under such time pressure.... We've definitely got a release date and we've got to make it." Regarding a competition with other Marvel's upcoming releases, he is not lacking in confidence and even claims, "I will say the following: X-Men as a brand is bigger than Captain America, Thor and the Green Lantern, all put together."

McAvoy, meanwhile, wants to address to audience that he is not playing a new Xavier. "This isn't a reboot, so I'm not replacing anyone, in which case you might want to try to be as different as possible and stay away from what had been done before. This is a prequel, so I'm the same character, just younger," he explains. "But the challenge for me - and for Michael - is to show the same person in a different place in their life; to show someone before they're this bad guy, before they're this saint. Charles wasn't always a ... monk, this selfless, sexless monk that he becomes."

Producer Bryan Singer adds that "the biggest challenge is introducing an audience to these characters in a different time - characters the audience is familiar with but now see played by younger actors and in a story taking place in a different time." He continues, "You have to put your characters out there and introduce them to a quizzical public that sort of recognizes them. But that very thing is the exciting part of it."

"X-Men: First Class" will chart the epic beginning of the "X-Men" saga and follow Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr when they were still close friends who worked together with other mutants to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. It also highlights the events that lead them to become archenemies. The movie is slated for June 3, 2011 release in the U.S.

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Director Gets Mad, We Get Magneto In His Helmet
January 20, 2011

Yesterday, Fox was kind enough to release three brand-new stills from X-Men: First Class in what seemed like a move to make up for their odd promo shot of the cast a day earlier. Score one for us. Now, thanks to director Matthew Vaughn’s outrage over the initial costumed shot, we get two more. And yes, one of them contains Michael Fassbender in his Magneto helmet. SLAM. DUNK.

The photos come exclusively via SlashFilm who were contacted directly by the furious director. Hit the jump to read Vaughn’s testy words.

“I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image,” said Vaughn. “When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ.’” He continued, “I’m a fan of X-Men. We’re not bastardizing X-Men, I’m trying to get them back to being whole again.”

He’s whistling a much different tune than his remarks to the L.A. Times yesterday, “I’m at that stage where I feel like a boxer against the ropes. I’m just throwing punches and taking them as they come and making sure I don’t hit the canvas,” he said. ”We’ve definitely got a release date and we’ve got to make it.”

The second image isn’t nearly as exciting as the first. It’s James McAvoy…acting like he’s thinking really hard. Which we all know requires great acting skills to do. But I digress. As for his thoughts on the costumes we saw in the group promo shot Vaughn had this to say, “The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because f&#! it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60s James Bond…”

“I’d say this is more like Casino Royale than [JJ Abrams] Star Trek. If you think about it, Casino Royale just totally rebooted Bond — they kept what they wanted and got rid of what didn’t work,” he said. “You sort of saw Bond become a double O for the first time and yet it didn’t seem to matter [what they changed]. I think my rule is to make a stand alone movie that is as good as possible and do as many nods and winks towards the comics and the other films, but not get tied up in knots worrying about that. It’s sort of a stand-alone movie in my mind with a reboot being a real reboot. Because if you’re a stickler for continuity, in X3 when you see Patrick Stewart…. well, I don’t want to give away anything about the plot but we’ve been as respectful of the other movies and comics as we I can feasibly can be without compromising the story.”

Along with the two stills, this teaser poster was finally premiered on Ain’t It Cool last night as well. As for the content of the actual movie Vaughn was still pretty tight-lipped but told SlashFilm there would be a “fair amount” of action. “I’d say it’s got more character-driven action than action for the sake of action.”

So I’ll ask you guys again, do these new stills make you more or less concerned about the film? Magneto looks pretty epic but what about all this picture-leaking/not-leaking/backpeddling going on?

NEWS: New Pictures to X-Men: First Class, Teaser Poster and More…
Posted on January 20, 2011

Okay, so I know the last post we had regarding Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class film wasn't all too flattering. Although those images were claimed to be officially from his movie, he didn't want that particular mock up to be released. I mean, to be honest, it looked like a bad Photoshop job. But no worries, because we have new pictures! We also have some thoughts from the director himself, and a pretty cool looking teaser poster.

Continue reading to view pictures...

For those who didn't know, that pictures we posted up yesterday wasn't even supposed to be released to the public. Even Mathew Vaughn freaked out about it.

“I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f&#! is this s$#!, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…"

Then he begins to actually talk about the costumes.

"The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because f&#! it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60’s James Bond…”

Seems like Vaughn knows what he's doing. I really like his reasoning for having the suits blue and yellow. He pretty much said "ah f&#! it, let's just keep it OG." Well played Mr. Vaughn.

The first picture shows Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, who is having a conversation with Emma Frost, played by January Jones. The second picture seems to be a the collective cast of mutants, the "First Class" of X-Men. Next we have two pictures pictures of James McAvoy as Professor X (yes, he has hair) and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Finally, a classic shot of Professor X and Magneto playing a game of Chess.


I personally love the look of the film. It definitely gives it a very 60's kind of look, which is exactly where this film is trying to aim for. So yes, if you guys were wondering why Professor X and Magneto looked so young (and why Xavier had a full head of hair), it is because this is an origin film, and it set in the past.

Vaughn also talks more details about the film...

“It’s definitely more serious and more realistic, and I think that’s something that had to happen. That’s my feeling about the world we live in right now. I think the glossy colorful superhero film sorta had its day. I think Batman Begins started it, Dark Knight, dare I say Kick-Ass was fun and it had some real pop to it, but at the same time we grounded it in reality as much as possible. I think that’s what the audience wants. And that why that image is more Fantastic Four than it is X-Men. And I say that with all due respect to the Fantastic Four team. That was then and this is now. It’s a different time. I mean, look at me — I’m not exactly mister light.”

Oh, and let us not forget the teaser poster:

First Look: Magneto In X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

Here’s which iconic as great as recognizable picture of a X-Men authorization which if we were 20th Century Fox, we would positively have done certain it was expelled initial over all else. As we pronounced a couple of hours ago, it does appear identical to Fox have been scrambling around, desperately perplexing to erase which really bad Photoshopped, Fantastic Four character picture from a minds as great as finally, we have been starting to rise behind-the-curtain of their many desirous X-movie yet.

Hell, executive Matthew Vaughn suspicion those costumed images were crap as great as great as he was pissed when he saw it. He told /film last night;

“I freaked out upon them yesterday. we don’t know where a ruin which came from. we don’t consider it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When we found out, we said, what a f&#! is this s$#!, as great as Fox is using around perplexing to figure out what happened as well. we agree. It’s identical to a bad photoshop, which may be it was by someone. It didn’t simulate a movie. we was repelled when we saw it. we was identical to ‘Jesus Christ’…

I’m a air blower of X-Men. We’re not bastardizing X-Men, I’m perplexing to get them behind to being total again.”

The great thing about a incident for us X-Men fans is which Fox as great as Vaughn have been right divided sharpened off both barrels of X-Men coverage to greatfully us. We saw those latest images yesterday, as great as right divided /film have which iconic demeanour during Magneto above, as played by Michael Fassbender as great as lots some-more quotes from Vaughn. Yup, they have been really perplexing to damp us;

The Magneto picture upon top of gives us a great demeanour during a dress from a genuine central still, which is a yellow as great as black of a Stan Lee/Marvel strange designs of a 60′s. Interestingly, if we corkscrew up to a image, a suits appear to have straps identical to a hold up support. Vaughn says;

The costumes have been blue as great as yellow as well, since f&#! it, lets take it behind it a original. Also, by a way, those costumes have been frequency in a movie. The categorical costumes have been identical to these cold 60’s James Bond…”

Apparently a costumes won’t be seen until a last movement of a film as a film is really many about a early days in a arrangement of a group, set resolutely in a 60′s;

“Imagine a Cuban Missile predicament as great as finding which mutants exist, both during a same time.” … “The actors have been so great. Ian McKellen as great as Patrick Stewart have been really really tough to replace. When I’m examination Fassbender as great as McAvoy we only think, it arrange of reminds me of Daniel Craig we do Bond, we kind of dont consider about there were alternative people personification him. And that’s what we feel about these two.”

Encouraging things of march though everytime we see McAvoy, he seems to be perplexing his darned hardest to a Spock impression. There’s zero healthy here about him perplexing to recapture Patrick Stewart as great as a stills of him have underwhelmed me so far;

Over a dubious which a leaked dress print has caused between a public, meditative it competence be Fantastic Four character movie;

“It’s really some-more critical as great as some-more realistic, as great as we consider that’s something which had to happen. That’s my feeling about a universe we live in right now. we consider a silken full of color superhero film sorta had a day. we consider Batman Begins proposed it, Dark Knight, brave we contend Kick-Ass was fun as great as it had a little genuine cocktail to it, though during a same time we grounded it in being as many as possible. we consider that’s what a assembly wants. And which since which picture is some-more Fantastic Four than it is X-Men. And we contend which with all due apply oneself to a Fantastic Four team. That was afterwards as great as this is now. It’s a opposite time. we mean, demeanour during me — I’m not only title light.”

On a turn of movement scenes;

It’s droll which we contend which since if we watch [the alternative x-men movies] there isn’t as many movement as you’d think. we consider X-men 3 had a many action. But X1 as great as X2 had cold set pieces. But for me, we consider it’s tedious examination CG as great as large explosions. I’m sorta over that. I’d contend it’s got some-more character-driven movement than movement for a consequence of action.

And is a reboot or isn’t it?

“I’d contend this is some-more identical to Casino Royale than [JJ Abrams] Star Trek. If we consider about it, Casino Royale only all rebooted Bond — they kept what they longed for as great as got absolved of what didn’t work. You arrange of saw Bond turn a mount in O for a initial time as great as nonetheless it didn’t appear to have a difference [what they changed]. we consider my order is to have a mount alone film which is as great as probable as great as do as many nods as great as winks towards a comics as great as a alternative films, though not get scored equally up in knots worrying about that. It’s arrange of a st-alone film in my thoughts with a reboot being a genuine reboot. Because if you’re a stickler for continuity, in X3 when we see Patrick Stewart…. well, we don’t wish to give divided anything about a tract though we’ve been as deferential of a alternative cinema as great as comics as we we can feasibly can be though compromising a story.”

So that’s not all a X-Men: First Class details. Whilst Matthew Vaughn called /film from his modifying brook in London, X-Men writer Bryan Singer was we do his repairs reduction duties by job a sanatorium ridden Harry Knowles during AICN (get great shortly mate!) as great as upon condition which him a disdainful entrance of a teaser poster, certainly a many identical to a prior authorization picture we’ve had so far;

Harry says;

Bryan tells me which he’s seen a ridicule up for a trailer, though they’ve still got a ton of visible goods shots left to knock in to a thing.

I suppose a approach Fox have been perplexing to greatfully us, we’ll be saying a trailer earlier rsther than than later!

X-Men: First Class opens in June. we would adore to listen to what we consider of all that’s left upon this week….
