First Offical Photo from X-Men: First Class
Posted 01.18.11 by Ryan
The first (purportedly) official photo from director Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of X-Men: First Class confirms the rumor that the team will wear the yellow and blue costumes from the comic books.
The photo reveals (from left to right) Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemying as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as the Beast (in blue fur),
Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X.
First Class is currently undergoing reshoots according to actor Edi Gathegi. Academy-Award winning editor Lee Smith inadvertently confirmed this by telling FlickeringMyth that he is working on First Class while Vaughn finishes shooting.
Matthew Vaughn has his own unique view. I’m not seeing much of him yet as we’re still shooting. It’s a big film being done in a short amount of time. It’s going to be intense but so far what I’ve got has been very good. Everyone is happy with it. So fingers crossed.
Smith added that he is "booked to start" on The Dark Knight Rises on May 1, which means, considering First Class' June 3 release date, that Smith will have to be finished with First Class by then.
Kevin Bacon, Caleb Landry Jones and Oliver Platt co-star.
