When it rains it pours when it comes to the past few weeks, not only for comic book films in general, but for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS specifically. Aside from recently getting our first look at Andrew Garfield in the Spidey suit, an image of Thor looking pissed off at the world, multiple photos of Captain America both still and in motion, and of course the big announcement yesterday surrounding THE DARK KNIGHT RISES casting, we got "our first glimpse" at the younger, newer, and hopefully improved X-Men. But that's not all, folks.

Today we bring you a look the mutants of Matthew Vaughn's X-MEN: FIRST CLASS sans silly costumes, not to mention our first look at Michael Fassenbender as the chrome-domed Magneto, plus a few more production stills featuring the likes of Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw conversing with a boobaliscious Emma Frost played by January Jones. And, as a bonus for clicking the more button in the next few minutes, we'll give you the first teaser poster for the film totally free!

It's an offer you can't refuse but better act fast, as quantities are...oh wait, no they're not. Photos from the film seem to be quite abundant after that whole botched first look fiasco from earlier in the week, which apparently pissed Vaughn off quite a bit. Check out what he had to say about the unapproved images, along with some approved ones.

Addressing the issue of the leaked cast photo first-hand to /Film, Vaughn stated:

"I freaked out on them yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the fuck is this shit, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…"

As for the costumes seen in the photo, which seemed to raise a few eyebrows not in the way you want them raised, Vaughn said:

"The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because fuck it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60’s James Bond…”

Head over to /Film to read more of what the director had to say about his James Bond/CASINO ROYALE-esque take on the FIRST CLASS origin story.
