After receiving some fan backlash from some early posters for X-Men: First Class, 20th Century Fox and producers seem to be content with passing along the semi-weekly screenshots of the characters themselves. Just weeks after revealing the Hellfire Club with January Jones and Kevin Bacon and another snapshot with Lucas Til as Havok, the studio has unleashed this latest screenshot.
This pic involves Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme (aka Mystique) and Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy (aka Beast). Check it out below.
Helmer Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake) led from the director's chair, based on a screenplay by Josh Schwartz, Jamie Moss, Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz and Jane Goldman.
Plot Concept: The prequel 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 Lehnsherr 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 prevent nuclear 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.
