Yes, this will do nicely. (via MSN)
UPDATE: MTV says that Fox has “indicated” that is “not an authorized image” from the film. “Not an authorized image” is a stupendously weasley-sounding use of language – especially when “fake” is so much simpler and easier to say. So, you can probably take to mean that it’s NOT a “fake” so much as it’s not a “final” piece of official production art – which is fairly clear from the photoshop used to get everyone into the image. Likely scenario: It’s a piece of “mockup” key-art that someone leaked – in other words, these ARE the actual costumes/makeups, but not “official” images thereof.
That, OR it’s an especially good con and Fox is just being needlessly coy about it. I doubt that, but I hope it’s not the case: I’m very fond of most of this, and it’d be a real shame if the “real thing” ended up not looking as good.
This is, apparently, the first of what may or may not be a big forthcoming “dump” of character-reveals from “X-Men: First Class.” Unless it’s an excellent fake, this is our first glimpse of what most of the new/younger characters will look like.
Let’s get the obvious question out of the way first: Yes, I think the outfits overall look much better – purely from a design standpoint – than they did in the previous films. Sure, partially because the yellow/blue scheme that (most) of them are wearing is more “classic” but it’s also just more aesthetically pleasing: They’re more immediately evocative of “uniforms” than the custom-molded-gimp-suit look used previously.
But let’s be real here: The most attention is going to be given to January Jones as Emma Frost/White Queen – who, even setting aside the more obvious appeal, literally looks like she just jumped right off the comics page. Holy Shit. I feel like I should send the producers a thank you note in advance for making Halloween 2011 that much better (to say nothing of the cosplay circuit the rest of the year…)
Obviously, there’s plenty of reason to be wary given that it’s a Fox production; but I trust Matthew Vaughn and this is a good indicator as to why.
