Teaser Poster for X-Men: First Class
01.20.11 by BJSprecher
Adding to the recently released new still images from Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class is the first teaser poster for the movie, which we're pretty sure is legit—unlike the leaked cast lineup that Vaughn said he did he not approve for release—because Harry Knowles over at AICN claims that it comes directly from producer Bryan Singer.
Vaughn recently confirmed that he is still filming First Class, even though the release date of the movie is less than five months away, and it was noticeably absent from the list of summer movies that will have their trailers air during the upcoming Super Bowl. When asked about the trailer, Singer told AICN that he has seen a mock-up of the first trailer, but it apparently requires "a ton of visual effects shots" and is far from ready for release.
Set in the 1960s, First Class is a prequel to the X-Men trilogy of movies and follows Charles "Prof. X" Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik "Magneto" Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) as they battle against a threat to humanity while struggling with their own conflicting ideas about how to protect the emerging species of Homo Sapiens Superior (mutants) from a world that fears and hates them.
