X-Men First Class Gets a Shiny Metal-ish Teaser Poster

It’s raining mutants today! So far, we’ve had confirmation that the much-debated costumed cast photo was real, gotten three new swanky pics from the movie, and now, the teaser poster has arrived. Word is, the trailer is still being assembled as we speak, so I’m guessing Superbowl Sunday as the most obvious debut.

“X-Men: First Class” charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

Starring Michael Fassbender, January Jones, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till, Zoë Kravitz, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones and directed by Matthew Vaugn.
