Okay, so you see them in costume only from the waist up, but that’s more than you previously saw aside from all those set images with the cast in ridiculous ’60s-era clothes. Here’s the first cast photo, which is the real thing despite its very photoshop-py looks. MSN was apparently the culprits who released it before FOX wanted them to, and the site has since pulled them as a result.
According to Heat Vision/Collider, the characters/actors in the picture are, from left to right: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost aka the White Queen, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as the Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme aka Mystigue, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, “First Class” is in session June 3, 2011.
UPDATED: Yes, the cast photo looks to be real after all. MSN, who jumped the gun yesterday, has now put the bigger version of the photo back on their site. Click on the image below to get a bigger look at the cast in costume, then head over here for three more images.
