Tuesday afternoon, we got our first look at the world of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. The prequel to the X-Men movie trilogy will be led by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Kevin Bacon. Two of those three dynamos appear in the first cast photo, which features the characters on opposite ends of the spectrum. Check out the high quality close ups below…

Even though the photo quality is better, we’re still not interested in what this movie has to offer. The character choices are all over the place. Half of them don’t even appear in the First Class comic, yet they make it into the movie. And don’t get us started on how Havok (the blond teenage boy), is in this film, but his older brother Cyclops isn’t.

Official Plot Synopsis:

X-Men: First Class 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 Lensherr 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 stop 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.

X-Men First Class will open in theaters nationwide on June 3, 2011.
