Hey Film Fans… or more specially X-MEN fans!
HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY! Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox, we have FIVE X-MEN: FIRST CLASS first look images that were released in the U.S. today! WOOT!
Did you know that before Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen became the revered Marvel stalwarts Professor X and Magneto in the box-office superhero franchise X-Men, they were James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender discovering their powers for the first time in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS?

And the nemesis they have to battle is none other than Kevin Bacon as master villain Sebastian Shaw. Shaw is known as one of the greatest X-Men villains ever since his inception three decades ago.

The highly anticipated addition to the franchise charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, a time before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before best buds Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took on their famous monikers and became arch-enemies.
A recent unauthorized picture circulating the web ( seen here on PEREZ HILTON’S BLOG ) which featured the entire group of characters (including Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost and Nicholas Hoult as Beast) decked out in costume had director Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass) all “freaked out”.
“I don’t know where the hell that came from,” Vaughn told several movie websites. “It’s not a pre-approved image… it didn’t reflect the movie “. He explained that the costumes worn by the characters go back to the original costumes from the Marvel comic book. “The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because f**k it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60’s James Bond…”
