Here Are Actual Approved Photos and Poster for X-Men: First Class. Seriously.
Oh, internet! First you give us an unofficial, grainy looks at the first photo of the characters in X-Men: First Class, then you give us a supposedly official, high-res look at the same photo...and now you tell us that wasn't official either. In fact, director Matthew Vaughn is furious about that last photo. So furious, that he's going to say the F-word several times and give us actual official photos of Michael Fassbender as Magneto and James McAvoy as Professor Xavier. Meanwhile, an equally approved poster for the film has hit as well. See all three and read more about Vaughn's take on the film after the jump.
Apparently, Vaughn has no idea where the photo came from, but immediately "freaked out" on Fox and also called up / Film. Quoth Vaughn:
"...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."
Vaughn also added, that they "are not bastardizing the X-Men" and that "The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because f*ck it, lets take it back it the original." Sound logic, I suppose. He insists the movie will be more grounded and serious and much closer to Casino Royale than J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot.
Anyway, here's Magneto karate chopping the air with his hand (and probably manipulating some off-screen metal). But will it be any match for Professor Xavier's "I-know exactly-what-I'm-doing-and-how-I'm-going-to-do-it" stare? Doubtful. Also, we've got the first mutant-less poster for the film, courtesy of Ain't It Cool News.
