After first appearance of the image of the X-Men: First Class align in their specific costumes, today we’ve got more delights from Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming movie. We’ve got our hands on the first official teaser poster from the film, as well as five new images from the movie.
Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) and company are still heavy labor of ‘ First Class,’ the prequel story set to show up the origins of Charles Xavier‘s merry gang of super-powered mutants. While maybe not quite like a third Batman movie, Fox bets on big bucks that Vaughn will deliver a film guaranteed to bring Marvel’s “true believers” into the theater in droves this June 3rd.
I’ve never worked under such time pressure. We’ve definitely got a release date and we’ve got to make it.”
‘First Class’ will go up against three other superhero films for box office domination, counting Thor, The Green Lantern and Captain America: The First Avenger. Vaughn has positive attitude in beating all of them,
… look, I will say the following: X-Men as a brand is bigger than Captain America, Thor and the Green Lantern, all put together.”
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 Emma Frost (January Jones), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) and Havok (Lucas Till).
A new screen arrival Kevin Bacon (Sebastian Shaw) has explained a bit about what’s the coolest part of the film:
I think the youth of the movie, that is really exciting. You’ve got Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Zoë Kravitz (Angel) and James McAvoy (Professor Xavier) and all these young actors who are about to explode. When you see them become what we know of as the X-Men, to me, that’s really cool.”
He has said of his appearance:
My look is very different from the guy in the comic books. We decided pretty early on that that was not going to translate to film. But there’s a certain kind of style to the suits that I wear, but I don’t have anything extreme in the makeup department.”
