Photos of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), and Moria MacTaggert (Rose Bryne) from Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class have premiered online. The photos are from the 1960’s set of the film in Oxford, England. X-Men: First Class plot and synopsis: “It will take place during the 1960s and will parallel the history of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. The X-Men costumes will look much more as they did in the original comics compared with the first three films, although the original team members with the exception of Beast will not appear. For most of the film Professor X will not be bald or in a wheelchair, but the reason why Xavier is later forced to use a wheelchair will be explained. The villains of the film will be the Hellfire Club. The plot is as follows: “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. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.” Check out the photos below. X-Men: First Class will be released on June 3, 2011.
