'X-Men: First Class' Pictures Hit The Internet Hard And Fast

Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming prequel X-Men: First Class hit the internet like a juggernaut yesterday, with one site after another posting new and exciting images from the upcoming film. We’re not going to pester you with too many words, since these pictures qualify as a thousand each.

From SlashFilm comes these fabulous new pics of Atonement‘s James McAvoy (Charles Xavier, ‘Professor X’) and Inglourious Basterds‘ Michael Fassbender (Erik Lensherr, ‘Magneto’) using their mutant powers. Or possibly doing improv exercises. Sweet helmet, Michael. And we’re loving the old school blue and yellow costumes. It’s about time. Click the link for more of SlashFilm’s coverage.

From Hero Complex comes these three great pictures of the cast doing what appears to be… ‘talking?’ And standing too? Neat. Vaughn has appeared to embrace Bryan Singer’s recurring chess motif, and we’re digging the toned down but still theatrical costumes for Emma Frost (Mad Men‘s January Jones) and Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon, who’s in everything).

And from Ain’t It Cool comes our first look at the teaser poster for X-Men: First Class. Surprise! It has an ‘X’ on it. You expected something else? Click the link for more of Ain’t It Cool’s coverage.

We’re loving the look of the film, the feel of the costumes and the cast is pretty stellar to begin with. Very encouraging, Mr. Vaughn. You’ll see us in the theater opening day, June 3rd, 2011.
