A new photo has been released from X-Men First Class, and it features two members of the villainous Hellfire Club. The heads of this elite group are Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost, as played by Kevin Bacon and January Jones. This image debuted over on Empire, and it has an interesting tone to say the least. Check out the full photo…
In the comics and the cartoons, the Hellfire Club is a group of snobby mutants who think they’re superior not only to humans but also their own kind. They typically live in a decadent mansion sprawled with Victorian era furnishings and books. Whatever it takes to make them look like they’re above it all is in their arsenal but judging from this photo they’ve switched it up a bit.
Director Matthew Vaughn obviously puts a new spin on the Hellfire lair. Instead of it looking like a study, it looks like Shaw and Frost are hanging out at a rave. The bright blue lights and all the mirrors make us want to whip out some glow sticks and dance.
X-Men First Class will open in theaters nationwide on June 3, 2011.
