X-Men: First Class did such a grade-A job of bringing the sexy. You remember, right? Of course you do. The coats and the turtlenecks and the jaunty headgear?
Not even January Jones’ bouffant or Jennifer Lawrence’s five head could put us off. But what in Xavier’s name have they done to poor Evan Peters as Quicksilver?
That’s some deeply unsexy styling. That’s like Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka bad. What, what, what is he wearing? For the record, in case you’re unfamiliar, this is the kind of smolder young Peters is capable of. He’s the darling of tumblr.
They’ve also released a new photo of Beast and Wolverine.
I mean it’s honestly bad enough that they gave McAvoy terrible hair and have to hide that Hoult light under a blue fur bushel without all this silly Quicksilver nonsense. What, do they expect us to focus on plot and character development? Ugh, it’s like they don’t even know us.
Your move, Whedon and Johnson.
