The 2011 movie marketing is heating up. First we had new photos for Spider-Man, Thor and Captain America and now X-Men: First Class, the origins story set in the 1960′s and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass). The movie, which is of course about the first X-Men team and takes during a time when Magneto and Professor X were still friends, opens this summer and we’re finally get our first real look at the cast and characters.
Personally, I’m excited for this project, not only because I suspect Marvel is trying very hard to avoid the stink of X-Men: The Last Stand but because putting mutants in the middle of the Civil Rights movement is pretty cool.
Without further ado, check out the new X-Men First Class photos.
