     October 4, 2010

People with digital cameras are quite pesky these days. If you shoot your film out in the open, you are usually setting yourself up to have photos from your ongoing shoot to show up online. That’s exactly what has happened during Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming X-Men: First Class, as we showcased a few photos featuring Emma Frost (January Jones) in the past. Hit the jump for new set photos that feature Charles Xavier, Mystique, and Moira MacTaggert and a recap of what we know so far.

While these shots might look familiar, I promise you the previous ones were extremely blurry and had to be labeled just to know who was being shown. Now, thanks to OhNoTheyDidn’t, we can clearly see all the fine details of the First Class set and the wardrobe decisions they have made. What is clear is that Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is not worried about how cold and wet it is outside as long as she has Xavier (James McAvoy) on her arm. Additionally, we get to see some of the Oxford set and a clear photo of Xavier’s love interest Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne).

For more on the film, check out how McAvoy  plans to play Professor X in respects to Sir Patrick Stewart’s version and what producer Bryan Singer details about the focus of the film. The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass), X-Men: First Class is slated to open on June 3, 2011.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. 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.
