X Men First Class Character Posters International X Men: First Class Character Posters

The marketing for X-Men: First Class began on the wrong foot when its very first image released, depicting a poorly photoshopped banner of the principal cast in costume, yet totally out of context. Most of the posters since then didn’t make up for that mess, but the X-Men: First Class trailers certainly did, and then some.

First Class will be the most challenging sell of the X-Men film franchise to date, bringing back no actors from the series thus far, basing itself as a period piece set in the ’60s and filling out its supporting mutant roster with B-list characters. Let’s take a closer look at these younger mutants with the following international X-Men: First Class character posters.

The international one-sheets depict Angel Salvadore, Azazel, Beast, Emma Frost, Havok and Professor Charles Xavier in familiar poses, sporting their costumes, but this time, each gets their own spotlight. Take a look and pick out your favorite:

For the most part, director Matthew Vaughn and producer/story provider Bryan Singer have kept true to the comics in terms of the character designs, even down to the blue and yellow costumes sported by the original X-Men team.

For a more in depth look at some of the key characters of X-Men: First Class, check out the following two clips released by Twentieth Century Fox:

The X-Men: First Class cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng, Zoë Kravitz, Lucas Till, Oliver Platt, Ray Wise, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones and Álex González.

X-Men: First Class hits theaters June 3rd, 2011.

  1. So much better than the horrible earlier posters. I like all of these. :)

    • your kidding right? the earlier posters were classy these all suck

      and to every one else, yes the beast sucks

      • should see beast in X-men the last stand. Much better with new hair style ftw~

  2. I don’t know what that blue thing is but it ain’t Beast.

    • Dude, that’s the Blue Panther, cousin of the Black Panther, ain’t you heard?

      • I was thinking more of the Wolf Man but someone punked him and put blue dye in his shampoo. :D

  3. The Azazel one is sick!

  4. and if I remember the old beast actually was a rather large “hairless” human…the transformation had better be like in the last 20 min…I am just not impressed at all with that costume.

    • Not to mention that Beast didn’t turn blue until X3 in movie continuity.

  5. Better than those awful posters

  6. Her boobs are so huge! I’m pretty sure she could smother a man to death between those boobs. It would be one of the most pleasant deaths a man could die.

    • Sorry, I saw was boobs.

  7. Sadly, Emma Frost does not impress me :(

  8. My big question is how come no one has seen or commented on this movie as of yet, no early reviews not one comment from someone saying hey I’ve seen an early cut and it looks great nothing. I ve said that I think there are major issues with this movie and I still believe there is something up with the overall film.
    Maybe I’ll be wrong, im going to pass on it mainly cause I think this is a horrible representation of the X-men franchise and just a continuation of Fox’s need to have a comic book franchise under their control, this has become Singers FOX-Men rather then the X-men. Hopefully for the fan its good and happens to redeem the franchise after the last two bombs, but I doubt it. For me I’ll stick to the comics and the animation and Pass on Fox related Marvel Products

    • @Loco Lobo 1127 They held a cast & crew screening Tuesday and very good word came from it. This week some press screenings are happening so you’ll hear a lot more.

      • Certainly the cast & crew wouldn’t have any reason to say the movie was good if it wasn’t.

      • If true this will be a sad day for us all because it will set them up to make at least two more incarnations of this X-Men farce. :(

    • Actually, Lobo, there ARE good reviews of that movie. From a writer of Bleeding Cool for instance:

      “First Class contains some of the briskest and most efficient storytelling I’ve seen in any recent blockbuster. An awful lot happens, and awfully quickly at times, but it’s all clear and while some nice moments might be over in the blink of an eye, this can only reward repeat viewers.

      There’s a sequence later in the film, from which much of the material for the “character trailers” was gathered, that actually uses split screen to crack the pace up one more notch. This film does not hang around – and at over two hours of running time, that’s a virtue, because when nothing drags, and the audience don’t get bored, the minutes just whistle by.”

    • The Animated X-Men series are all just as bad as the movies when it comes to rearranging stories, characters and sagas. Wolverine and the X-Men? Even X3 wasnt that bad.

      • Check the original X-Men cartoon that ran from 1992-1997 on Fox. It took some liberties due to it being a Saturday morning cartoon that could not depict allot of the more adult aspects of the books but, it was as close as one could get. During the Phoenix episodes it actually took a panel from the end of an issue of Wolverine and recreated it exactly. They tried.

      • Last time I looked no X-Men has EVER included characters that were traditionally villains, chucking nearly the ENTIRE original X-Men team out the window, taken characters from the recent episodes and made them founding members, created a sibling paradox……need I go on (and I can)?

        Yes, most incarnations have taken their share of liberties but this one pretty much chews up the the canon and spits it out into the mess you see in this movie.

        • “Last time I looked no X-Men has EVER included characters that were traditionally villains.”

          You might wanna look again. Magneto was an X-Man before, so was Juggernaut, Sabretooth, Quicksilver, Tessa (Sage), etc. The list goes on and on. Right now even Legion (Xavier´s insane son who was responsible for the Age Of Apocalypse) is now in the X-Men.
          And before you complain about the canon, this movie is BASED ON SINGER´S X-MEN MOVIES, not the comic books! When will people finally accept that?!

            • your original statement was no x-men team ever had characters which were traditionally villians. scapegoat gave examples that prove your statement false. and is azael even part of the x-men in this movie. still havent seen him in costume.

  9. How come Xavier looks like a live-action Astro-Boy?

  10. FACT: This movie is based on characters and events which have been established in Singer’s version of the X-Men universe. It should be simple enough to conclude why the original first class isnt in this movie. This is an original story based on those characters from the comics. It in no way needs to follow stories or ideas established in said comics. Feel free to hate it, but please provide a better reason than ‘But in the comics….’
