We held off on releasing the group image of the cast from the upcoming X-Men: First Class last week, as we weren’t too sure of it’s authenticity. As it turns out, we were right. The image from last week, showing off everyone from January Jones as Emma Frost to James McAvoy as Professor Xavier, was a complete hoax by a fan. Which is good, considering that it looked pretty awful.
Now, probably in retaliation to last week’s bogus image, Fox has released three brand new images and a poster for the upcoming film, all totally legitimate.
In the images you can check out after the jump, we get a first look at both McAvoy as Professor X playing chess with Michael Fassbender’s Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto. Also we’ve got a very 60’s looking January Jones and Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw and the very first image of the titular Class.
Check out all of these new images after the jump, along with the brand new poster, and expect to see the first trailer for the film soon, as its currently in it’s post-production phase.
The film is set to hit theaters on June 3rd.
