First Look: Bad Quality Leaked Cast Photo for 'X-Men: First Class'

X-Men: First Class

It's a small, low res photo that originally was released with a huge watermark on it before Bleeding Cool got their hands on a cleaner version. But that said, this new first look photo at the cast from Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class still makes it look like a soap opera superhero B-movie, which I know it's not, and Fox doesn't want it out there, but everyone's talking about it, so we have to jump on the bandwagon even though I wish we had a better first look. Seen below (from L->R): Magneto, Moira MacTaggert, Emma Frost, Azazel, Hank McCoy, Havok, Angel Salvadore, Raven Darkholme aka Mystique and of course, Prof. Charles Xavier.

As for the actors in X-Men: First Class, from left to right: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as the Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier. Stardust/Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn went into production very quickly late last year so that Fox could still make a June 3rd release date this summer. We haven't seen any official photos from it since (and this doesn't even count), but it's less than six months from opening, so stay tuned!

I'm gonna punch a baby, if this movie sucks! Get it right people!!

Chauncey on Jan 19, 2011


ooo not looking so nice. looks too cheesey. though i like that the costumes have the x-men yellow in them. The mutants chosen are sooo random so this is obviously going to be pretty unfaithful to the comics. I did really like Kick-Ass though so I have definitely not lost faith.

joey on Jan 19, 2011


I am scared! This movie gives me flashback of dragonball z movie! Movie Gods, help us!

Grey on Jan 19, 2011


I never had faith in this in the first place and this only confirms it considering how FAR off base they are.

tra la la la la di da on Jan 19, 2011


zoe kravitz hot as hell ditto for january jones

KeyNeezy on Jan 19, 2011


lol! i didn't need another reason to not see this, but I'm glad they've still got ammo in that department!

Dan on Jan 19, 2011


Looks like an homage to the roger corman fantastic four movie made on a 10,000 dollar budget.

h8t3r on Jan 19, 2011


EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww... Ever since he publicly stated that super hero movies are a dying breed, I have been worried about this.

Operation has been restored to normal sir, you may resume firing.

Alex Billington on Jan 19, 2011


You wait so long for these movies and they never deliver. Just let this francise r.i.p please no wolverine. just wait 10 years. maybe jj abrams or synder can remake this series...the right way. yeah stick with less characters unless you can handle it. Feels like x3 again. Im glad I forgot about this movie

Kevinnash on Jan 19, 2011


"The Wolverine" sounds like is going to be good with Darren Aronofsky in charge of the Project. Il give this movie a chance all I have seen are photos nothing more. But I would like to see all the orginal 6 X-Men in an actual real X=Men movie that has to do with the first X-Men comic.

i have no name on Jan 19, 2011


I dont care how small the lady's outfits are I'm still not gonna see this...Oh and Chauncey stay away from my kid...cause this is gonna suck.

Anonymous on Jan 19, 2011


Thank you Nolan for caring. Let the Brits take x-men. Hope Fox losses this francise. Fox I hate your comic book movies. Please kill yourselves for not getting it, lol not making great superhero movies. Okay maybe not kill but punch yourself in the mouth. This guy gets it

Deadpool on Jan 19, 2011


Why are they fucking up my favorite comic? Stop it

SmallWorld on Jan 19, 2011


If the trailer sucks or even hints wolverine and x3 than please don't see it the first weekend...atleast. What made x3 money was the first weekend opening. Thats why ratner got paid for building poop. I don't think this movie will be great. another waist of superhero genre. That's why they don't win awards.

Joker on Jan 19, 2011


Emma Frost looks like a stripper. 🙁

Angry Chief on Jan 19, 2011


Cool 🙂

It does take place a long time ago hence the vintage look. I loved Kick Ass and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. But a couple of them do look cheesy. We'll see. By the way Rose Byrne is my woman. Sunshine is my favorite movie so back off.

angelic on Jan 19, 2011


Wasn't interested before and I'm not any more interested now. Maybe even less interested.

Dan W on Jan 19, 2011


Emma Frost looks like the genie from I Dream of Jeannie! LOL! This looks so bad! 'Bad Quality' is an understatement! Hopefully this is some kind of test-photo of some sorts to look at how the characters would look or some kind of proposed idea for the costumes; and not the real thing. They did a decent job in the X-Men movies. They will be taking a huge step back if this ended up being in the actual movie.

Ron on Jan 19, 2011


ok, about half of them look completely ridiculous. This are Prof. X, Mystique, Hank aka the beast, and the red headed guy emma frost looks like a complete bitch and stripper if i were to not know about this movie and saw this picture, the first thing that would come to my mind would be that this movie would be like and epic movie, or the super hero movie with drake bell looks like its gonna suck, but we never know how its gonna turn out till Summer 11

LuIs_306 on Jan 19, 2011


Stop taking a dump on a favorite childhood comic! I'm assuming Fox still owns the X-men rights and is milking it for every dollar! If so... F U Fox!

McWilly on Jan 19, 2011


I don't care i'm going to see it, and so will you all. I hate 20th Century Fox for what it has done to my favorite group of mutants but i will enjoy the film none of the less.

Joe on Jan 19, 2011


wow looks like complete trash

BinaryChaos on Jan 19, 2011


look like the animated tv series costumes. I'm sure this has gotta be a test shot or something, it cant be this bad!!

Micah Wilkins on Jan 19, 2011


this has spiderman 3 written all over it...but i will still see it anyways, FOR THE POPCORN!!!!!!!

Jericho on Jan 19, 2011


Boy does this look lame! I feel kinda sorry for James Mcavoy.

John on Jan 19, 2011



Solo Calrissian on Jan 19, 2011


This looks bad.

Mattias Nielsen on Jan 19, 2011


WTF just about all of them were not in the original 6..... this makes me very very very sad, SCRAP IT START OVER it looks like a bad tv show

Splinter on Jan 19, 2011


I want to say cool, but half of the cast looks like they escaped from the porno version, 'Xmen: First Shaft'

Steven on Jan 19, 2011


This is going to suck. Suck bad. The special effects are going to look unfinished and the film itself will be bad!

Mithun Divakaran on Jan 19, 2011


Agreed. this looks like it will suck. I am dissapointed already. The mutants do not even resemble the comics. They probably will f**k up the story ... too.

Crabby on Jan 19, 2011


Made for TV movie!!!

Crabby on Jan 19, 2011


I have a boner. Emma Frost looks amazing. What movie is this?

Brian Ricci Movie Review on Jan 19, 2011


They did say from the beginning that it was going to look like older times (Silver Age) comic books.

M. on Jan 19, 2011


Marvel is gonna dominate the summer movies. Dominate. Although this looks like crap I cant wait for McAvoy vs. Fassbender

Voice of Reason on Jan 19, 2011


This is gonna be the first movie to get a reboot while still shooting.

The Douche on Jan 19, 2011


hollywood really knows how to fuck the x-men universe right in the ass. seriously. hopefully after this theyll give up on it

mr.truck on Jan 19, 2011


This looks like crap hope it gets better then this shit

Trevorscherer55 on Jan 19, 2011


Looks like crap !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don't like any of these actors

Jojo on Jan 19, 2011


It has already been confirmed this photo is a fake. I'm sorry to not have any references right in front of me, but in case anyone was wondering. Feel free to Google check the poo out of it... but it's a fake.

Mrorang3 on Jan 19, 2011


Bad fake, sheesh.

!5AAK on Jan 19, 2011


This looks so bad

Ostilad on Jan 20, 2011


I am not that hyped about The Prequel don't know why although this is one of my favorite comic book movies, the old franchise was great i loved it. I was hoping we could see a cameo for Wolverine as Hugh Jackman, this will be a great reason for me to watch the movie.

Ahmed Hozayen on Jan 19, 2011


I stand corrected but still dismayed. I can only go from what I've read and pics I've seen.
