New X-Men: First Class Posters
Less mutant, more moody

01 March 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Coming Soon

We’re getting to the point where the X-Men: First Class marketing strategy is less a release schedule and more a barrage, with two new posters arriving online today. You can check them both out in the gallery below.

Originally spotted on the Danish FilmZ site by Coming Soon, the images go more for moody emotion and ties between the past and the future than OTT superhero imagery, continuing the theme of the recent trailer. We’ve constantly been told that First Class features the early days of Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) before they became the wheelchair-bound Professor X and driven enemy Magneto.

While the posters also continue the slightly iffy Photoshop work, the use of reflections to show what each man will end up as is a nice touch. Take a look at the posters and let us know your thoughts.

X-Men First Class also features Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng, Zoe Kravitz, Jennifer Lawrence and Lucas Till. Director Matthew Vaughn is racing to get this one finished in time for its May 30 release date.

Hmmph
There is heavy rain, and Fassbender doesn't even look half as soaked as he should do. But yes, it is a great concept for the posters. More

RE: Script Prediction
Dreadful.  Interesting ideas but neither of the guys look like they actually belong in the posters, and Fassbender in particular looks like he's floating in front of it, instead of being in it. The guy in the Professor X poster barely even looks like James McAvoy  More
