Re-shoots well under way, the first image from “X-Men: First Class” has emerged — sort of. Starting from left to right is Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Emma Frost (January Jones), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvador (Zoe Kravitz), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy).
The photo first appeared hours ago at The Daily Blam, but it has since been removed from that site. Then, multiple other sites such as MSN and MTV blogged about it as well. But you’ll find no image there either.
So, HERE it is in all its glory!
Does it look fan made? Yes. Is it a mediocre Photoshop job? Mmhmm. Is the look similar to that of Fantastic Four? Hell, yes. That said I believe and hope the leaked image is just a rough rendering. It’s definitely not terrible, but it’s not even close to astonishing. January Jones looks out of place. The Beast looks like a Na’vi. Azazel, Darth Maul on Rogaine. Mystique … well, did we really want to see a baby version?
My gripes aside, what do you think? Is the image authentic? If it is, do you like it?
