First Look: The Cast of ‘X-Men: First Class’

Here’s the first small image of the assembled cast for Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class. Left to right, we see: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.

I expect that we’ll see a better version of this image later today — I’d initially held off posting this one because it looks like an early, not quite finished look. And, frankly, I’m a bit disappointed in how this looks. It’s a lot more modern than I’d expected, but perhaps a high-res version will showcase the small costume details in a better way. What about you — is this what you expected to see from the ’60s-set X-Men prequel ? [Originally from MSN; link dead; via TheDailyBlam! and Bleeding Cool]
