Lots of speculation over how good X-Men First Class movie was going to be, as still images, casting questions, and odd costumes have appeared on the Intardwebz these last couple of months. The official trailer has been unleashed, and gives us our first look at the 1960s Marvel hero group.
If you were wondering if that other X-Men: First Class image was fake or not, Matthew Vaughn confirms it wasn’t approved by him.
“I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f*ck is this sh*t, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…
Instead, Ain’t It Cool News landed the real first First Class teaser poster, that you should see in your local theater soon.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of New Mutants #22, which kicks off the second chapter of the Age of X arc.
It’s been all over the Intardwebz today, and while it does look cool, there are many wondering if this first image of the cast of X-Men: First Class is the real deal, or an Adobe Photoshop joby.
Michael Fassbender as Erik “Magneto” Lensherr, Rose Byrne as Dr. Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma “The White Queen” Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Hank “The Beast” McCoy, Lucas Till as Alex “Havok” Summers, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as Charles “Professor X” Xavier. The film also stars Oliver Platt, Caleb Landry Jones and Kevin Bacon.
MSN.com had the image up first, before they took it down, only to show up moments later on the Daily Blam site with a full watermark all over it. The image was then removed from the site with a message that reads “at the request of the studio.”
The thing that is most surprising about the image isn’t the hottie hot January Jones, but that the image is so damn small. Surely if this were the real deal, someone would have a 240000 x 10000 pixel version floating on their website somewhere (like the Spider-Man image that showed tons of detail). Interestingly, both Marvel and 20th Century Fox are quiet as… well as quiet as Marvel and 20th Century Fox can be.
Take it for what it is worth. If it is true, then go to town, but if it isn’t, remember the Intardwebz are the last bastion of truth in the world…
