SpiderMedia has two new character posters for Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming X-Men: First Class. In them, we get some liquid portent of who James McAvoy’s and Michael Fassbender’s characters of Charles and Erik will become in thefuture. The poster taglines go hand in hand with the previously released synopsis for the film:
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. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
Other stars include Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, January Jones as Emma Frost / White Queen, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Nicholas Hoult as Dr. Henry “Hank” McCoy / Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme / Mystique, Morgan Lily as a young Raven Darkholme, Oliver Platt as The Man in Black, Ray Wise as the Secretary of State, Zoë Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Caleb Landry Jones as Sean Cassidy / Banshee, Lucas Till as Alex Summers / Havok, Edi Gathegi as Armando Muñoz / Darwin, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Álex González as Janos Quested / Riptide, Andy Callaghan as a member of the Hellfire Club, Tony Rich as Thomas. X-Men: First Class opens on June 3rd.
Thanks to Brian as always for the tip.
