<i>X-Men: First Class</i> Gets Earlier UK Release Date, Plus New Character Details Revealed!

As well as a new release date, there are some interesting details about the characters that Kevin Bacon and Rose Byrne are playing. Who is Dr. Schmidt and which one of them is a CIA Agent? Hit the jump for details...

It's already been confirmed that the movie will be released in the US on June 3rd, but as has been the trend of late with comic book movies such as Kick-Ass, Iron Man 2 and Thor, the UK will get to see X-Men: First Class a little sooner. (although not weeks sooner as was the case with those listed above) Here's an excerpt from the report at RWD.

"The news that X-Men First Class, the film focussed on the early days of the mutant movement has finally been given a UK release date excites us a lot."

"...which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men is released June 2 2011 in the UK and Ireland."

Interestingly, the site also mentions that the cast was "revealed" to them along with the release date. Although we already know whose playing who, I'm pretty sure we've not heard Kevin Bacon's Sebastian Shaw also referred to as Dr. Schmidt in the past and Rose Byrne's Moira McTagger as a CIA Agent. What do you guys think about that?

X-Men: First Class also stars James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fasbender as Magneto, January Jones as Emma Frost, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Oliver Platt as The Man in Black, Lucas Till as Havok, Jason Flemying as Azazel, Edi Gathegi as Darwin and Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore.
