Yes the first look at the complete cast (costumes and all) for Matthew Vaughn's superhero prequel 'X-Men: First Class' we posted the other day may have been a bit flimsy but the 'rough around the edges' first look was still a first look! Thankfully though we've been gifted with much glossier new stills, thanks to the L.A Times and Slashfilm.com respectively. And even a new still of January Jones in her tight white Emma Frost outfit. The first class superhero lineup consists of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), the fore-mentioned January Jones (Emma Frost), Jason Flemyng (Azazel), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok), Zoe Kravitz (Angel), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and James McAvoy (Professor Charles Xavier). Check out the new stills below.
"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. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN."
