New ‘X-Men: First Class’ Image & International Posters

X-Men: First Class” hits theaters in June, but a trio of new promotional images from the film arrived online this week.

Foremost among the new “First Class” shots is a photo of January Jones and Kevin Bacon as villainous Hellfire Club members Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw, respectively. The shot, which debuted in the latest issue of Empire, features the pair in what the outlet describes as their “snazzy secret lair.”

Along with the aforementioned photo, a pair of international posters for “X-Men: First Class” also appeared on the ’net this week (via Filmz/SuperHeroHype) featuring James McAvoy as Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto). The posters reiterate the push to frame “First Class” as a prequel to the prior “X-Men” films, with each sporting a variation of the tagline “Before He Was … He Was …”

“X-Men: First Class” is scheduled to hit theaters June 3, 2011.
