These truly awful X-Men:First Class posters are NOT fan-made...

Mar. 9, 2011by: George Merchan

...unless of course Fox's official X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Facebook page got hacked by the denizens of the Superhero Hype forums!

But seriously, what was Fox thinking? To date, they've released some fun and interesting still images, a terrific trailer... but now they completely drop the ball with two ridiculously amateurish one sheets depicting Magneto and Professor X and the faded visages of the men they once were? Gah.

Synopsis: 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.

Oh God....

Whoever is behind these posters has zero creativity. I'm not even talking "designer creativity", I'm just saying his brain is incapable of simple thought processes. In simpler terms, he's what you'd generally call " a stupid shitbomb that should never be allowed to do anything by himself because he might f**k it up really bad, that's how completely moronic he is".

On a sidenote, are Fox trying to get people NOT to see this? Is there some silly bet going on in the office against Vaugn?

Those are pretty terrible. If they took out the faces and just left the shadows, it wouldn't be too too bad.

I don't think they're terrible, just uninspired.

It's good to see Eddie Vedder finally get some work while he waits for that band thing to take off.

If they wanted the shadow look they should have had McAvoy and Fassbender in the foreground and had either their shadows be Professor X and Magneto, granted that's a total and complete rip off Phantom Menace but it'd still be better. Or they should have them standing in front of a pond with the Xavier Institute in the background with water casting their reflections of their future selves.

I know this is bad publicity, but let's hope the actual movie matches the incredible trailer and not this amateurish home-made posters.. As far as I know, the director doesn't make the posters for the movie..

The difference is that the trailer contains actual parts from the movie directed by Vaughn, and these posters, aside from the title, they vaguely reflect the content from the movie..

I thought this movie was going to be absolutely awful until I saw the trailer--and now they're trying to convince me it will suck again with these hideous things? Ugh.

Poster design seems to be a lost art. Now with Photoshop any talentless loser can slap a few images together and call it a day. Where's Drew Struzan when you need him?

these posters fit with the "first class" theme b/c they look like they were made by some students in photoshop 101.

The best part is the horrible positioning of McAvoy's face. I love how the bit of white between Xavier's leg and armrest is cutting into his face right about the eye.

Fail, lol.

Hopefully these posters are the only things that Rothman and his cronies manages to fuck up this time. They have the most exiting looking superhero film amongst a bunch of others and yet they manage to shoot themselves in the foot in a spectacular way.

With these two new posters, they make the previous 2 posters (Before they were Prof. X and so on) look like Masterpiece.

Kuato lives!

Probably another example of Hollywood's obsession with 'brand awareness'. Corporations are ruining the creativity of once-great studios.

For wanting to make First Class a new start to the X-Men series, as has been said numerous times, they really are reaching back to the old movies quite a bit. Its really turning me off since its starting to look like a big time, studio intervention in this case.
