Yeah, we all know that banner from the other day was leaked/not leaked/official/unofficial/completely naff, but Fox have responded by going right ahead with the release of the first official photos of X-Men: First Class. And they're a lot more reassuring to look at, especially in terms of the period costumes.
YOU WILL NEED A NEW PAIR OF PANTS
Read on for the other images and the rather awesome teaser poster that turned up at AICN. Maybe it's Professor X's stylish beige jacket, Kevin Bacon's sideburns or THAT white jumpsuit on January Jones, but things are starting to a lot more like the film I was hoping for...
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.
There now, isn't that all better? I'm particularly looking forward to the bit where Xavier (James McAvoy) loses that pivotal game of chess to Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and tears his hair out in anger.
Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class is released on Friday 2nd June. Head this way for the official Facebook page.
