X-Men: First Class

Recently we've seen some cool stuff highlighting X-Men: First Class in the form some vintage magazine covers featuring several of the characters, and a killer fan-made 1960's style opening credit sequence for the film. Now we have a bit or promotional material that you'll probably see at your local theater in the form of what very well could be the last poster for the film as the June 3rd release date looms closer. Honestly, it looks a little too photoshopped for my tastes, but it's not as bad as that one Fast Five poster and it does fit in with the style that we've previously seen on the poster for X2: X-Men United. See for yourself in full below!

Here's the new poster for X-Men: First Class from Empire (updated - we've added another below!):

There was another poster that I think looks MUCH better debuted as well. Check it out below via TDB!

X-Men: First Class Poster

Before Charles Xavier (McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) took the names Professor X & Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for their 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 will be bringing X-Men: First Class to theaters everywhere June 3rd this summer. Watch the first trailer.

    I have faith in this movie, but they can't get a poster right to save their mutant loving lives...
    • BigMike23
      the very first one with the reflections in the water was the best so far
  • g'd gawd, their heads look photoshopped onto their bodies... LOL
  • They couldn't make a better poster than the previous X men movies ??? .. The size of the heads with their bodies are not perfect and the places where two bodies are on each other is just show how much unprofessional this poster is ... !!! Even the reflection in the ground are all in half and it is not good too .... I was waiting for more powerful posters to come .. Disappointed ..

    X-Men: First Class will not apparently be the definitive depiction of the Hellfire Club as they do not seem to have included anyone apart from Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost. As it stands it will only be them and a bunch of nameless henchmen in the film. They should have included Harry Leland, Donald Pierce, Tessa and Selene.

      Didn't you write this exact paragraph over on Slashfilm?
      • And every other article on the web. When we don't even know whether or not those characters are in it. Selene wasn't even in the original Hellfire Club anyway
  • Marty Martin
