Fox Opening Registration for X-Men: First Class?
Source: D.Mac
July 28, 2008


An interesting listing at Production Weekly caught our eye - "X-Men: First Class." Could 20th Century Fox be developing a movie based on the series written by Jeff Parker and pencilled by Roger Cruz? Or are they using the title of that comic for their proposed Young X-Men spin-off?

What makes it even more interesting is that X-MenFirstClass.com redirects to FoxMovies.com.

The "X-Men: First Class" was an eight-issue mini-series published from September of 2006 through April of 2007. As Special was also released in May of 2007 followed by a monthly series that started in 2007 with the same creative team. The comic is described as follows:

For millions of years, mankind's place on Earth was unchallenged – until five young people paved the way for a new kind of human. While students at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Iceman taught the world what it meant to be X-Men. These are the hidden stories of the team that laid the foundation of a mutant dynasty!

We'll have to wait and see if official news on this hits.


The interesting thing is that this one was of the rumors for the "Origins" trilogy.....X3 connected Beast as a former member of the X-Men but Angel was made young and not an official member....should be interesting to see how they handle that continuity flub if this goes forward.

X-Men: First Class To Film In 2010

It would appear that Fox’s latest assault on The Franchise That Singer Built is set to start production in a scant few months, at least according to Tim Pocock (aka - one of the many things wrong with X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

You might remember Pocock as the young Scott Summers in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. You know, the actor in his 20s playing the high school-age version of a character that would have been in elementary school when the Three Mile Island incident occurred. It’s Ok if you forgot him though, he wasn’t particularly great in the part anyway.

http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/8607/firstclass.jpg

Well, he’s going to be back for X-Men: First Class. Soon.

Producer Lauren Schuler Donner has been playing coy about what’s next on on Fox’s X-Men slate, saying recently "I think there are some wonderful storylines I’d like to pursue in X-Men 4 and 5, but who knows? Obviously, Fox is my partner, so we’re in discussions about what will be next." However, this didn’t stop Pocock from telling his whopping 90 Twitter followers that he’s "currently shooting Australian TV series till February 2010…then X-men first class ;)"

Alright, the cast for the next X-Men movie, so far, is…the version of Cyclops from the X-Men movie people liked even less than X3. Awesome.

Hey, at least the script is from Josh Schwartz, the guy who created Chuck. Oh, and The O.C. and Gossip Girl. Wonderful.

I really hope those rumors that Bryan Singer might come back and direct this turn out to be true. This ship needs a ^^^^ing captain again.

Ugh. Such great potential with this franchise, but it all went wrong when Singer left. Oh, well. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but that kid did not scream "Cyclops" at all to me. Yeah, he was skinny and white with brown hair, but no potential leader vibes at all that I saw.

In the comic, Scott took over pretty early when Prof. went off after Lucifer, and so he always had that characteristic of being capable of leading, and of a willingness to accept the responsibilities involved in doing that. I just don't see this kid pulling that off.

Iceman is too young to be in the first class too. They'll probably give us two other people to replace Angel and Iceman.

All three series with snappy dialogue, intriguing, flawed characters and some very cool plot twists. Much, much better than the man who killed Superman.

Interesting News:


James McAvoy will step into Patrick Stewart's iconic shoes as a young Professor X in "X-Men: First Class," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Patrick played the role of the X-Men's telepathic, wheelchair-bound mentor in the three previous "X-Men" films and had a brief cameo in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

"First Class," directed by Matthew Vaughn, will follow the mutant superhero team during their early years. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story will include a look at Professor X's youthful friendship with Erik Lensherr -- later the villainous Magneto -- before the two became arch-rivals. Whether or not James will lose his full head of hair to play the bald psychic was not reported.

The film is scheduled for a June 3, 2011, theatrical release.

Memnoch
05-28-2010, 09:05 PM
The more I hear about it, the more I just go ugh. Reboot the damn series with age appropriate actors - or even CGI'ed Stewart and McKellen. Add in Moira, make the first class consist of Angel, Iceman, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Toad, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Mastermind. Have conflict between the two groups in the first film, and have them separate. Then at least you have the REAL first X-Men team and the REAL first Brotherhood. You can also then play out the family drama of Magneto and his kids, the romantic relationship between Charles and Moira to the point where she leaves him. It COULD be great - but wait, this is Hollywood - it's gonna suck.

Actually of you _____ing aren't up on your comic histories. Xavier is a genius, graduates from Harvard at 16, spends two years in Oxford and then gets drafted into the Korean War. That would place him 18 at 1950 the earliest he'd be able to be drafted into the Korean War. X-Men 1 was in 1963 which you add only 13 years to the age of Xavier. That would put him at 31 when he first forms the X-Men. McAvoy is 31 right now. What the ____ are all of you _____ing about?

Not to mention that Cyke, Jean, Hank were mentioned at being between the ages of 15-17 when they first joined the X-Men. What exactly did you want to see concerning First Class?

ShadowX81
05-28-2010, 10:01 PM
But this isnt the comics. The prequel films are clearly taking place in the same universe as the original movies. Xavier is obviously much older by 10 years than his first class of students students. He looks like he is in his 70s. He was already going into his middle ages when he met Jean in X3, and she was a child then. And considering that Cyke, Jean, and Beast are in thier late 30s at the apsolute oldest, that would put them graduating Highschool in the late 80s, meaning he would have been almost if not already 50 when he formed the X-men.

Here is the thing with prequels they ____ with continuity all the time. Do people forget how much stuff went down in the SW prequels that changes the original trilogy? Take Anakin being Sebastian Shaw when unmasked, no way in hell that connects to the timeline set by Hayden Christenson's portrayal in the prequels but it's there. This will be no different. I guarantee they are looking more at the comic than at the previous films for a driver.

I didn't realize Xavier was so young he founded the X-Men, I always thought he was significantly older. I don't think it'll wreak that much havoc with the little scene at the beginning of X3, most people dislike the movie so who cares if that continuity goes out the window. Or they can always do like Lucas and refilm it with the new actors so it fits. :lol

I don't wanna go too far off topic but...


Take Anakin being Sebastian Shaw when unmasked, no way in hell that connects to the timeline set by Hayden Christenson's portrayal in the prequels but it's there.

Palpatine's sudden aging pretty much explains that away. If anything that's why that was included. Lucas easily could have left McDiarmid as-is in the prequels and just used the passage of time between trilogies to explain his aged-by-makeup appearance in "Jedi" but he didn't, he showed the Dark Side corrupting and aging him almost instantly and it's not much of a stretch to assume that's why unmasked Vader doesn't look like Hayden Christensen in his 40's.

But hey, "no way in hell" sure is more dramatic than "1 rational way in RotS".

Rosamund Pike Up for Emma Frost?
by Silas Lesnick
Jun 9th, 2010
The British actress may be joining X-Men: First Class
Rosamund Pike, the British actress who appeared most recently in Surrogates may be playing Emma Frost, aka the White Queen in next summer's X-Men: First Class, according to a story at Forces of Geek.

According to the site, Pike has been spotted in the offices of X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn's casting director and also seen carrying Emma Frost comic books.

Casting rumors for the film are pouring in with, just earlier today, Michael Fassbender rumored to be in the running for the part of Magneto. With shooting set to begin in just a few months, it shouldn't be long before Fox offers official confirmation.

The latest issue of production weekly (via: playlist) is reporting that Amber Heard (The Informers, Zombieland) is in talks to play a young Mystique in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. Also, Pride & Prejudice/Surrogates star Rosamund Pike, who was previously rumored to be in line to play young Emma Frost, is now being pegged as a possible Moira McTaggert. Mystique was played by Rebecca Romijn-Stamos in the original Bryan Singer films while McTaggert was played by Olivia Williams in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand.

kevin bacon in talks to play x-men: First class villain
posted on friday, july 9th, 2010 by peter sciretta



kevin bacon (mystic river, apolo 13, sleepers) has been offered the role of the villain in matthew vaughn’s x-men: First class. Deadline reports that bacon has yet to sign on for the part and is in talks to come on board the project. Michael fassbender (inglourious basterds, hunger) is playing eric lensherr aka magneto, but the story is very much an origin story for all the players involved. So which character is bacon in line to play?


Update: Many readers think bacon might be playing mr. Sinister, who is described as the following on wikipedia:

Mister sinister is a genetically altered human with superhuman physical and mental abilities. Mister sinister was granted powers through genetic alterations by apocalypse, and throughout the years has used genetic material from other mutants to grant himself a truly vast array of superhuman abilities. Mister sinister possesses superhuman strength, stamina and reflexes. Mister sinister possesses the psionic abilities of telepathy, telekinesis, and mind control. Mister sinister has the ability to psionically paralyze a foe or “turn off” the power of another mutant. Mister sinister is capable of energy projection and flight through telekinesis. Using genetic material from the mutant courier, mister sinister gained complete control of his body at the cellular level, allowing him to shape-shift, regenerate and be virtually immune to injuries. The character has exhibited the ability to teleport, though the beast believes this is accomplished through his tesseract headquarters. Mister sinister is also a scientific genius, with expertise in the fields of biology, genetics, cloning, physics and engineering. The character is a master manipulator and planner, with decades of genetic research at his command.

Previously:

In case you’re confused, here is the official casting thus far:

James mcavoy is charles xavier aka professor x
nicholas hoult has been cast as dr. Henry philip “hank” mccoy aka beast
michael fassbender (inglourious basterds, hunger) is playing eric lensherr aka magneto
alice eve, the lead actress from she’s out of my league, was in talks with fox to play emma frost.
Caleb landry jones (friday night lights, the longshots, the last exorcism) is sean cassidy aka banshee.
19-year-old actor lucas till (walk the line, dance of the dead, hannah montana: The movie, the spy next door, and the upcoming battle: Los angeles) is alexander “alex” summers aka havok, the younger brother of the x-men’s cyclops.
And here is a list of the unconfirmed casting rumors:

Amber heard (the informers, zombieland) is in talks to play a young mystique
pride & prejudice/surrogates star rosamund pike is in talks to play moira mctaggert.
Spider-man shortlist actor frank dillane may also be up for a role.
Surfer erica hosseini auditioned for the role of willow.
Kick-ass star aaron johnson might be in line for the role oc cyclops. Ew claims the rumor is untrue.

Bryan Singer, who not only directed the first two 'X-Men' films from the trilogy, was also was offered the director's chair for FOX's latest installment X-Men: First Class. Now only serving as producer, Singer unfortunately had to turn it down due to his commitment to Jack the Giant Killer. And now with Matthew Vaughn tapped as director of the mutant-flick with an ensemble cast & filming set for next month, Singer now gives a great length update with Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News on the upcoming prequel.


"The film takes place in the 1960's. John F Kennedy is the President of the United States. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X are on TV doing marches. There is a spirit of a hopeful future that was prevalent in that time. We will see how Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr met - and how they dreamt of a future with Mutant & Human kind.

They're going to be in their late twenties. Xavier will not be in his wheelchair to begin the film - but we will see how he wound up in a wheelchair. We're going to see Professor X when he still had hair. We'll see McAvoy and Fassbender's Magneto formulate what it is they are attempting by creating the X-MEN.

Now Bryan wanted us to know this is not the conventional "First Class" comic, but rather a new beginning for "X-Men". Set in the 60s - Vaughn is technologically inspired by James Bond's tech of the time. The costumes will be far more comic bookish than we've seen before, and while Scott and Jean aren't here,Cyclops' brother Alex Summers aka Havoc will be

With January Jones and Kevin Bacon playing Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw, as speculated, we'll be getting the "Hellfire Club". AICN commented that the "Hellfire Club" has always felt like something that it would be wrong to modernize, as it felt as though it were something specific to the swinging Hefner era of the 60s... and Bryan said "that's exactly why they're making use of the HELLFIRE CLUB... the dress and the costumes associated with that glorious period of the X-MEN... belong in the 60s."

"filming will begin with Xavier at Oxford University in the 60s. And Bryan is excited that the film is going to have a much more international feel than the prior X-MEN movies. They'll be shooting in England & the United States - and they'll be representing other locales around the globe as well, but would only tell me that Russia (aka The Soviet Union... CCCP) will be amongst them. He doesn't want to show all the cards just yet. But the International flavor will give the film a more James Bond vibe... I get the idea that this is going to be something quite special."

More info:

The 1960s: it was a time of change, a time of upheaval, and a time of mutants.

For a film that hasn't even begun filming yet, "X-Men: First Class" has received a lot of attention. The movie will be a prequel to the highly successful "X-Men" film franchise based on Marvel Comics' long-running superhero series. Casting news has slipped out over the past few months, and it was announced last week that Emmy-nominated "Mad Men" star January Jones is joining the cast. But we didn't know much about what we'd see in the movie until now.

Producer Bryan Singer recently spoke to Ain't It Cool News head honcho Harry Knowles about "X-Men: First Class," and he revealed some notable details about the movie, including the fact that it is set in the 1960s. Singer, who also directed the first two "X-Men" films, states that the movie will show Charles Xavier, aka Professor X (played by James McAvoy) meeting Erik Lensherrr, better known as Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender) as young men in their late 20s.

The story will show Professor X and Magneto when they were still friends and how they assembled the first team of X-Men. McAvoy's Professor X will apparently look different than Patrick Stewart's older version from the first three films. He will have his hair, and he will still have the ability to walk. Singer did indicate that the movie will show what causes Xavier to be confined to a wheelchair. However, that could potentially conflict with the earlier movies, since there were flashbacks in "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" that showed Stewart's Professor X walking.

Singer also confirmed that Kevin Bacon will play the main villain of the movie: Sebastian Shaw, leader of the elite secret society, the Hellfire Club. Shaw is a mutant with the ability to absorb kinetic energy and adapt it into superhuman strength. The Hellfire Club, which covertly influences world events, also includes January Jones' character, the telepathic Emma Frost. Jones, of course, should feel right at home in the 1960s, since that's also the setting of her hit show, "Mad Men," though in the comics Emma Frost dresses a bit more provocatively than Betty Draper does.

With this film being a prequel, we won't see Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, and the other X-Men from the previous movies. One exception is the mutant Beast, played in "First Class" by Nicholas Hoult. It's not known yet if Beast will look human, like he was depicted in the early comics, or if he will be covered in blue fur like his later incarnations (and as he was played by Kelsey Grammer in "X-Men: The Last Stand"). Singer does state in the interview that the costumes in the film will look more like the original comic book versions than the leathery armor of the films.

Ultimately, it makes sense to place the "X-Men" prequel in the 1960s. The comic book was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1963, and the subtext of mutants being out of place in society was rooted in the civil rights issues of the time. Bryan Singer also states that the film's director, Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass"), hopes to give the movie an international tone inspired by the original James Bond adventures of the era.

"X-Men: First Class" isn't the only superhero movie that's looking to the past, though. "Captain America: The First Avenger" will be set during World War II, which is also when that character first appeared in Marvel Comics.

"X-Men: First Class" is scheduled to open on June 3, 2011.

Spoiler Pic:

http://bitcast-a-sm.bitgravity.com/slashfilm/wp/wp-content/images/xmenfirstclasssetpic1.jpg

Why? Click:

The most obvious thing we see in this photo is the cockpit of Blackbird, the famous jet flown by the X-Men. And while it does look like the jet has crashed, it could potentially just be being built by the crew for shooting in the future. Now that I think of it though, why would it be fully assembled on a beach? From these pics, it seems safe to say that the Blackbird crashes at some point in X-Men First Class, and that most of it will be completed with CGI – hence the huge green structure.

Well, that then begs this question: How far does X-Men First Class go into the X-Men history? We know that the film, which stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, and Kevin Bacon is about a young Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr before they became Professor X and Magneto and focuses on their friendship, powers and the events that lead to them becoming the leaders on either side of the battle for mutants. The inclusion of Blackbird, which is generally considered to be the X-Men’s main mode of transportation (in the movies, they called it the X-Jet), leads one to believe that the X-Men are pretty well established at some point in this movie.

Am I totally wrong in my assumption? Or does it make sense that Magneto and his Brotherhood would attack the X-Men and the Blackbird in this film? Could we be looking at one of the climactic battles?

Supposedly the trailer is 4-6 weeks away but it has apparently been screened.

Spoilers

- The trailer opens with the 20th Century Fox logo which pans up as the two spotlight beams cross and form a white "X" on the left of the screen. A white circle goes around the "X" forming the X-Men logo, as Magneto's helmet comes up on the right.

- Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan voice over the opening lines about destiny and which side will you stand for as scenes of each in their previous X-Men movie roles flash until the entire screen flashes from white to black.

- A very young Xavier and Erik meet for the first time, followed by a different angle of the scene from the opening of X-Men in the concentration camp.

- Camera pans outside of an old castle-style building that greatly resembles the X-mansion. McAvoy and Fassbender are seen walking through the halls. The words "One wanted peace" flash by Xavier.

- Scene transitions to Erik yelling dramatically as metal tables in the room begin to float around him. Xavier and Mags shake hands with a tall man in a lab coat introduced as Dr. McCoy.

- The words "The other was too far gone" flash as a very pissed off Erik storms through a hallway killing guards as he passes them.

- Cut scene to what appears to be a red Nightcrawler with swords taking out a room full of people; the close up reveals Azazel's face.

- The Hellfire Club stand next to Xavier on a bed as Emma goes into diamond form. Olver Platt and Kevin Bacon were next to Emma in black aristocratic clothes, with Emma wearing the exact same outfit from the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon.

- Mystigue on a bed with her skin turning black; Beast is shown transforming, with his feet growing and toes webbing and fur growing.

- Havok shoots a red beam of energy -- looks almost exactly like cyclops's eye beam, but larger -- from his chest (SIDE NOTE: Havok's powers in comics have always had a blue energy, this change may be to relate his character to Cyclops).

- It then shows Beast all blue and furry (looking almost exactly like Kelsey Grammer in make-up) in the pilot seat of a crashing jet, followed by several rockets flying towards an island.

- Xavier's face goes all CGI and his head begins to go bald as he mentally pulls a large ship that was sinking out of the water, as well as some smaller boats around it (seems to allude to Xavier have telekinesis).

- Back to Xavier (with hair) telling Erik he only wanted peace for him, and he replies there was never a chance for anyone to have that.

- Final scene: Erik picks up a black helmet, then he is shown from behind wearing a black and red suit (no cape or coat though) and the helmet. Screen cuts to black and the X-Men: First Class logo shows up (the one described above), then the release date.

Don't expect anything more than a popcorn flick at minimum here.

Let me clarify something that I'm starting to notice. The First Class "Angel" is not Angel as we know him. It's NOT Warren Worthington III better known as Angel or Archangel. It IS Angel Salvadore, a mutant with insectoid physiology that was introduced in New X-Men #118. Her "codename" is Tempest, although I'm not sure if they are using it in the film and just calling her by her first name "Angel".

Xavier should be 30 at this point. In this case it's the other way around, Magneto looks too old, it's possible that was done purposefully as his time in the concentration camp was supposed to harden him and age him older than his friend but who knows.


Xavier with uniform??? WTF!!!!!!, I collect comics and I have all the X-Men and Uncanny X-Men comics and this BULL !!! is CRAZY:(

Xavier has been in costume a ton of times.

Everytime they give him his ability to walk he wears one. Since he can walk in the beginning (remember Magneto is the one who paralyzes him in some continuities) it'd make sense he'd be out there at first. I fully expect him in a suit and chair by the end if not sooner in this flick.


Emma Frost and Magneto look good. I have a feeling those two are going to steal the show. I think I would have preferred solo posters though for the main, main characters. Mystique looks like she's wearing Silk Spectre's outfit. :lol

The jury is out on Magneto, I don't like this particular look and wanted the white hair off the bat but Emma looks better than I would have imagined.

I think this has to be considered an out of continuity re-boot. Otherwise, it just doesn't make sense to have Emma Frost as a 20-something in Wolvie: Origins (which I think was supposed to take place in the late 70s/early 80s?), and also as a 20-something here (which takes place in the early 1960s, if I recall?). Nor does it make sense for Beast to be a 30- or 40- something in the various X-movies (which took place in the early-mid 2000s?), but a teenager in this film. Though it is possible to say that Cyclops was a teenager (around 15-16 years old) in the early 80s, and that his brother was a teen in this film (meaning they were sired 20 years apart from one another), it is a pretty rare thing. Maybe they'll just say that they had the same father.

I guess they can get around this stuff by claiming that various people don't age for whatever reason (I guess they went that route with Mystique in the comics, since she was supposedly Nightcrawler's mom but always appeared to be 30-something at the oldest, and Nightcrawler was a fully grown man--or maybe they claimed that Nightcrawler aged quickly as a child?).

The thing about having your hair turn white (Rogue) or losing all your hair (Xavier) due to stress is stupid. But it isn't enough to say "he had male pattern baldness." They've got to come up with some stupid reason to explain every weird physical trait. Just like they went to great lengths to explain John Connor's scar in T:Salvation, even though it was pretty stupid and really didn't need to be explained at all.

Nor does it make sense for Beast to be a 30- or 40- something in the various X-movies (which took place in the early-mid 2000s?), but a teenager in this film. Though it is possible to say that Cyclops was a teenager (around 15-16 years old) in the early 80s, and that his brother was a teen in this film (meaning they were sired 20 years apart from one another), it is a pretty rare thing. Maybe they'll just say that they had the same father.

There is no other excuse than to decide it is a continuity reboot. Originally this was supposed to take the end of Wolverine: Origins and run with it. I remember Cyclops and Emma both being in the initial blurbs. Then Vaughn decided to do a period piece in the 1960s and everything went to hell, Havok replaced Cyclops and things continued to roll down hill. I often wonder if they just let the writers take any mutant they want and just call it a day.



The thing about having your hair turn white (Rogue) or losing all your hair (Xavier) due to stress is stupid. But it isn't enough to say "he had male pattern baldness." They've got to come up with some stupid reason to explain every weird physical trait. Just like they went to great lengths to explain John Connor's scar in T:Salvation, even though it was pretty stupid and really didn't need to be explained at all.

Apparently according to some details (I don't know if they are true or not) Xavier loses it when he has to use his telekinetic powers past its capacity. Which is just as stupid...

Let's face it, as decent as the first two movies were, the whole movie X-Men continuity was changed/screwed up from the very first movie anyway.

This should have been a complete franchise reboot with the original members of the X-Men.

This looks like it will be a train wreck and hopefully kill the franchise (other than Wolverine I'm sure) for years and then hopefully get a reboot that does pay proper homage to the comics.

The Mike
01-19-2011, 11:14 AM
That actually was the original plan to start with Jean Grey, Cyclops, Beast (non-furred), Angel and Iceman. I remember even after Vaughn was cast the rumors swirling that Aaron Johnson was signing up to be Cyclops. The script was rewritten a ton of times even to make it a period piece (originally it was set in modern times as if the X-Men started now) and then we ended up with this.

As hard as it may be to believe, that is an actual promo photo for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. It first leaked to the web yesterday afternoon and as soon as I saw it, I was confused. It had many things right (the costumes for example were too right on to be faked) but so many, many things wrong, I didn't know what to think. The first official photo from a highly anticipated geek property couldn't be this badly Photoshopped, could it? Fox wouldn't release it in such lo-res would they? As it turns out, they didn't.

The photo, as you see it above, was never meant to hit the web. MSN was set to debut the first image from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS on their site along with an early interview with Michael Fassbender (Magneto). Somehow an early comp of the image made it into their public image gallery, a fan found it and the rest is unfortunate history.

Fox tried to cram the genie back in the bottle last night (and that's the reason you're only first reading this on JoBlo.com now, as we politely complied with Fox's request that we not post) but sadly twas not to be. The pic was out there and the fanboys were freaking out (and rightfully so).

I'm told the official color-corrected, hi-res image will be up this morning but is the damage already done? If the idea was to start the pre-publicity campaign for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS off on the right foot, this was the opposite.

There will no doubtedly be more photos released to help quell the tide and assure fans that what you see above is not what to be expected when the film hits theaters this summer.

I like Magneto's helmet and from what I've read he ditches the "X-Uniform" and wears a black suit in combat so I'm hopefully he is the only saving grace. It DOES make me appreciate the Singer version more and I wasn't a fan of those outside of a couple of character portrayals.

I love how Kevin Bacon doesn't look like Sebastian Shaw, just Kevin Bacon sitting on a couch.

They're going to CG Hayden Christensen over him anyway.

Why would you release this photo? Why?

He looks like some fanboy who found a Magneto helmet sitting around at a con, puts it on, then does a cliche pose with a stupid expression.

Seriously guys, are you that stupid?

She looks like she's channeling Emma Peel in this pic.

With the money being spent to try and make a decent X-Men movie they could probably figure out a way to make real X-Men.

No way that image is real. Looks like they photoshopped heads on to bodies. Every person's head in that shot looks weird.

Really, it looks crappy. :p

Yeah, it looks really amateurish. I don't think it's real either...

Jennifer Lawrence on Being Painted Naked Daily for 'X-Men: First Class'

The "Winter's Bone" star spent eight hours a day in the make-up chair to become Mystique in the Fox prequel.

As if some of us here at Heat Vision don't already spend enough time fantasizing about becoming superheroes or working on the productions of our favorite comics adaptations, here's a fun little anecdote from the set of X-Men: First Class.

Winter's Bone star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the blue-bodied Mystique in the Fox prequel, spent nearly half of the five-month shoot in London and Georgia enduring an irritating diet, two-hour daily workouts and eight hours in full-body makeup per day. That's right, for eight hours every day for months the beautiful Lawrence had a coterie of seven girls ďall up in [my] business," as she puts it.

"Nothingís sacred anymore," Lawrence says. "Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover."

Funny, that's exactly how many of us picture female-only slumber parties.

Right. "Itís what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her,Ē she mocks.

As it turns out, the studio has options on Lawrence for two sequels, so if First Class does well, she could head "back to the paint" and her tight-knit crew. In the meantime, post-shoot she was psyched not only to get her own skin back, but to ditch the diet, as well, when she got back home to Kentucky and some cherished home cooking.

"It was awful, I was hungry for five months," says Lawrence, who felt herself bulking up and getting weirdly aggressive during the shoot. ďIím still pissed about it. Iím slowly working my way back because I have to be able to eat like an _______."

Man, you gotta love this girl.

Why does Magneto have the helmet this early on? In X-Men Mags acted like it was a new thing he created to keep Charles out of his head at the train station.

What does these quotes say?


Vaughn assures fans that he has the best intentions.

“I’m a fan of X-Men. We’re not bastardizing X-Men, I’m trying to get them back to being whole again.

Um....hate to break it to you Vaughn but you really are.


As for the costumes…

The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because ____ 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…”

Then...


Here you've got January Jones as Emma Frost and Kevin Bacon as the movie's big villain, Sebastian Shaw. A character he describes as:

"A very powerful billionaire and also, as it turns out, a mutant. He's the leader of the Hellfire Club, which is a nightclub for the rich and extremely powerful. And he has a plot to take over the world, so that's really fun. He's incredibly good at manipulating people and at taking whatever kind of energy or ability they have and using it to his advantage, like if he's talking to a German, he's fluent in German. He's very charming and able to get whatever he wants."

What? Those aren't his mutant powers...

And...


As for keeping the fans of the series happy, Vaughn says he did “a lot of research on the X-men comics” and is trying to be faithful to the mythology set-up over the years.

I’d say this is more like Casino Royale than [JJ Abrams] Star Trek. If you think about it, Casino Royale just totally rebooted Bond — they kept what they wanted and got rid of what didn’t work. You sort of saw Bond become a double O for the first time and yet it didn’t seem to matter [what they changed]. I think my rule is to make a stand alone movie that is as good as possible and do as many nods and winks towards the comics and the other films, but not get tied up in knots worrying about that. It’s sort of a stand-alone movie in my mind with a reboot being a real reboot. Because if you’re a stickler for continuity, in X3 when you see Patrick Stewart…. well, I don’t want to give away anything about the plot but we’ve been as respectful of the other movies and comics as we I can feasibly can be without compromising the story.”
