First Official Look at the X-Men: First Class Cast! (Updated: New Pictures!)

Heat Vision blog of the Hollywood Reporter has gotten a hold of a first look at Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men in this new universe prequel/reboot of the Marvel franchise. The cast is mostly all there and you can check out the entire photo after the jump!

Hopefully a better/higher quality image can be found eventually, but right now this is it. THR has taken it from the downed MSN Entertainment link.

Starting from the left you can see Michael Fassbender (300, Inglorious Basterds) as Magneto without his infamous Magenta wardrobe as this is a precursor to the rivalry between Erik and Charles. Perhaps we’ll see the helmet at the end of the movie?

Next is Rose Byrne (28 Weeks Later, Get Him To The Greek) as Moira MacTaggert. I’m not too sure if she is a love interest of Charles Xavier in this movie, but if my memory serves me correctly they are some what of a thing in the comics.

The lovely January Jones (Mad Men, American Wedding) as Emma Frost aka The White Queen from the Hellfire Club. Ms. Jones looks to be filling in the Frost outfit very well.

Heat Vision didn’t know who the red face guy is, but my money is on Azazel (Nightcrawler’s father) played by Jason Flemyng (Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels)

Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, A Single Man) is next as Hank McCoy aka The Beast.

Lucas Till (Walk the line) plays the part of Havoc (Cyclops’ brother). Havok is a mutant with the superhuman ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body, transform it in an unknown manner, and release it as waves of energy that heat the air in their path enough to turn it into plasma, which is a super-heated state of matter consisting of charged subatomic particles. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms. Havok is himself immune to the intense heat he creates, as well as the power blasts generated by his brother Cyclops. (Marvel)

Zoe Kravitz (Twelve, The Brave One) as Angel Salvadore. Angel possessed several superhuman abilities akin to those of the common housefly. She had a pair of veined wings growing from her back that allowed her to fly and which she could vibrate at high speed to create a deafening ultrasonic sound. She possessed a reproductive system that involved laying eggs with a complete gestation period of only five days from conception to birth. Angel was also able to vomit a highly acidic substance that she used to partially digest her food prior to consumption. (Marvel)

Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) as Raven Darkholme aka Mystique.

and of course James McAvoy (Wanted, Atonement) as Charles Xavier leader of the X-Men.
