Don't Look: Two New 'X-Men: First Class' Posters to Ruin Your Day
A few weeks ago, we featured some impressive character posters for Fox's X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, starring James McAvoy as Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. It's obvious Fox's marketing is focusing on how these are younger versions of the same guys from Bryan Singer's trilogy, and it's worked well so far - until now. Yes, these are real posters, they came from the official X-Men Facebook and they're atrocious. I think the comment from "Erik" on Facebook says it best: "You guys should be embarrassed. This is pure amateur." Please, Fox, redeem yourselves and release amazing X-Men posters!
If you dare wish to see either of these posters bigger, you can click on them for larger versions on Facebook.
Before Charles Xavier (McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) took the names Professor X & Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time, even working together as friends.
X-Men: First Class is directed by British director Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake, Stardust and Kick-Ass. Bryan Singer, director of X-Men 1 and 2, is producing and wrote the story. The screenplay was written by quite a few writers, including Josh Schwartz ("Gossip Girl" & "Chuck"), Jamie Moss (Street Kings), Ashley Miller ("Fringe", Thor), Zack Stentz, and finally Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass). Marv Films & 20th Century Fox are bringing X-Men: First Class to theaters everywhere on June 3rd this summer. Watch the first trailer.
