Two Sleek Character Posters Revealed for Fox's 'X-Men: First Class'!

We've already seen the first sleek trailer for this summer's anticipated comic book flick X-Men: First Class, but now the marketing machine is getting into full swing with the film's June 3rd release date inching closer and closer. Today we have two fantastic character posters that take the same approach as the first trailer by focusing on who Magneto and Professor X were before they became two of the most powerful mutants the world has ever seen. The reflections of the two mutants can be seen in puddles of water as Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier pose dramatically. Check out both posters below!
Here's the two new posters courtesy of Comic Book Movie:
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 starting June 3rd this summer. Thoughts?
I like the overall feel of these, however, i am not a fan of the typography on the bottom - it looks great but a little too sleek for this film. I sorta feel like it would have went better with the original two films. nit-picking i know.

LOL, yeah...And I'm not sure they should force that association on us, the other movies weren't all that great.

Before he was in retirement home he looked like a British guy! Before he was crippled he could walk!

looks extremely photo shopped. lol. The text on teh top, i feel like should tilt along with the over all poster. it just looks off that its horizontal while the entire thing is tilted. plus i feel like alot of posters these days are jacking off of inception poster, where all the characters are fare off and the image is tilted at a weird angle...

Yes, but at least they look photoshopped in a good way, rather than the usual oversized heads or hands.

Some of the most beautiful posters I've seen in a while.

I understand that Erik was imprisoned at Auschwitz, but this might cause a bit of controversy.

The concept is cool, but not unseen before. I recall that when Star Wars Episode I came out, they released a teaser poster featuring young Anakin walking away from his Tatooine home, and the shadow that he cast upon the hut was the silhouette of Darth Vader. It was simple. Effective. While these try to grasp that idea, and do so with some rather beautiful settings, they lack the charm and ominousness that the Star Wars poster had.

Professor X needs to look into his reflection and realize hes going to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. and if they throw in how Erik was saved from Auschwitz it'll be completely bad ass

I like it 'cause it's a pretty colorful attempt to a movie poster for a movie like this.
Matt NotDamon on Mar 1, 2011
Why are there bodies with big flying heads stuck on onto these posters ? That looks so amateurish... Colors will make me puke if I keep looking at it any longer.
Emmanuel on Mar 3, 2011
As a matter a fact they do have the usual oversized heads of the most recent photoshopped posters. Take a good look at Eric... he looks like is the crippled one with is little body and skinny legs...
