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.


Thanks to my good mate RealIrOnMaN from "SpiderMedia", we have the following two character posters for X-Men: First Class!





X-Men: First Class is set to be released on June 3, later this year!

PaulRom - 2/28/2011, 12:34 PM

marvel72 - 2/28/2011, 12:35 PM

MrSuperheromoviefan - 2/28/2011, 12:41 PM
meh
luckylu - 2/28/2011, 12:41 PM
thw whole "before he was magneto before he was the professor" is getting real corny and campy imo
soberchimera - 2/28/2011, 12:41 PM
reminds me of the anakin skywalker/darth vader shadow poster for star wars episode I
ThaMessenger07 - 2/28/2011, 12:41 PM
These are cool!
WolvieCBM - 2/28/2011, 12:41 PM
Awesome! Great find Josh!
the1egend1ives - 2/28/2011, 12:43 PM
@luckylu

I agree. The beginning of the trailer looked like the beginning to a 90's sitcom.

Bandrews1 - 2/28/2011, 12:44 PM
These are awesome, I like the Magneto one the best though.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/28/2011, 12:46 PM
Keep hating lol
BatLantern - 2/28/2011, 12:46 PM
meh,..before he was Charles he was Gnomeo.
the1egend1ives - 2/28/2011, 12:47 PM
I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned that Magneto looks like he's standing in front of a concentration camp.
skidz - 2/28/2011, 12:48 PM
Great posters! I wonder if they're going to show what left Chuck (yes, I just called him that) in the wheelchair. The juxtaposition and contrast of the school and concentration camp is fantastic. I'm CAUTIOUSLY optimistic about this movie.

Where is the Havok one?! Ooo I got a good quote for his poster!

"Before he was Havok he was Cyclops' younger brother that is actually his older brother in the movies because making him his younger brother and putting the actual First Class in the movie would just make too much darn sense!"

Too much? Okay just cut it down and put in "Before he was Havok he was Cyke's younger brother...his mutant power? Rapid Aging of course!"

Coooooooooool.....better than the Thor poster. :P
the1egend1ives - 2/28/2011, 12:58 PM
@Slaine and intruder

Sorry for thinking that people might be interested in a glimpse of Magneto revisiting his origins. I don't think we ever saw that in any of the previous films.
Comedian03 - 2/28/2011, 12:58 PM
I cant help thinking that in all the the pictures of Magneto in this movie he looks really short.
Swanky - 2/28/2011, 12:58 PM
Shweett!!! Magneto is the coolest
bearPalm - 2/28/2011, 12:59 PM
Im sooo psycked for this movie
vermillion - 2/28/2011, 1:00 PM
Very awesome.
Retardo - 2/28/2011, 1:04 PM
The tagline of "before they were this, they were this..." is crap but the posters are ok
RorMachine - 2/28/2011, 1:05 PM
Great fond dude. And savage posters. They are indeed better than anything we have seen so far from Thor or Cap! At least they attempt a bit of imagination.
Dusk - 2/28/2011, 1:07 PM
@BATLANTERN- Or, 'Before he was Charles, he was that wimpy, traitor goat-dude from that boring Narnia movie.'
JosePetrelli12 - 2/28/2011, 1:11 PM
lmao@ TwilightMutant....

... but he was also a bad-ass assassin from Wanted... I guess we will see.
CapFan79 - 2/28/2011, 1:12 PM
Not that creative. They're a lot like the 1st Phantom menace poster with the Anakin shadow of Darth Vader. it's better than anything I've seen for GL though.
RorMachine - 2/28/2011, 1:14 PM
They do have the same idea to them, but at least it's an idea. And a good one at that. Better than the generic crap marvel love to use to promote their movies. I'm not saying the movies themselves will be bad, but you have to admit(or I should say, any reasonable person has to admit) that their advertising SUCKS!
blue18 - 2/28/2011, 1:16 PM
Weeeeeeeell, it is the same thing as 'The Phantom Menace' poster, but who cares? Why should that have any bearing on this film? Besides, I've ALWAYS LOVED 'The Phantom Menace'. BOOM! Can't wait for First Class! That stuff is gonna be epic!!!
RorMachine - 2/28/2011, 1:19 PM
Really? One other movie poster uses character foreshadowing and it's a cliche?
JoshWilding - 2/28/2011, 1:19 PM
Thanks guys! :) I'm also shocked to also admit that these are MUCH better than the ones for Thor. Rather than a rather bland shot of Xavier or Magneto just standing there with a blank background, these actually have a deeper meaning to them, and are quite honestly, pretty [frick]ing cool.
JediMasterJimMorrison - 2/28/2011, 1:21 PM
Zzzz...
TheBatman938865 - 2/28/2011, 1:21 PM
i think its pretty cool
CBMDeadpool - 2/28/2011, 1:22 PM
These are actually really cool I'm going to kinkos right now to get a Magneto poster made in a few!
CBArtist - 2/28/2011, 1:28 PM
My anger management class pisses me off!!!

Off topic, I know.

Just needed to vent:)
Eugene - 2/28/2011, 1:36 PM
mmmm...nice
Vital - 2/28/2011, 1:36 PM
Wait, I'm confused, I thought Magneto was a kid when he was in the Nazi con. camp? Why is he an adult, in 60s clothing, standing in front of the camp? Makes no sense lol. They chose the wrong background for him. Graphic designer fail lol.
RorMachine - 2/28/2011, 1:38 PM
@Intruder, Um, what? Oh you resorted to silliness. Ok, have fun.

I could do without the "before they were this and that" taglines I must say. But it doesn't take away from the general awesomeness.
Jer3miah - 2/28/2011, 1:38 PM
Clever. Not bad at all.
SKGannbit - 2/28/2011, 1:40 PM
before he was so and so he was so and so... that's so damn stupid. i hope to all that is holy that this movie bombs! boycott.
