Finally, we get a look at the cast of Matthew Vaughn’s origin tale, X-Men: First Class and it’s… well… it’s OK. Not really much to rally around, but then again, it’s just a promo shot, not in high resolution, and without seeing anyone in action, there isn’t much ado to be made of it. Take a look:
Doesn’t exactly pull my zipper down, but it at least feels a little less clunky than the Captain America stills we showed a couple of days ago. For those non-nerds,

What’s curious is how many mutants that will be in the film that aren’t shown, including Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon), Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones), Armando Muñoz / Darwin (Edi Gathegi), Riptide (Alex Gonzalez), and Thomas (Tony Rich).
Which is to say, there are a fuckload of mutants in this thing. It makes sense, when you think about it, since part of the film’s focus is on the formation of Xavier’s mutant academy. But still, history has shown us that too many characters can fuck up a superhero movie faster than you can say “Ratnerfucking.”
Don’t disappoint me, Matthew Vaughn.
