'X-Men: First Class': Time Crunch!

'X-Men: First Class': Time Crunch!

Check out this shot from the set of X-Men: First Class from the L.A. Times!

The film, out June 3, stars Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, and Jason Flemyng as Azazel.

Also starring are Lucas Till as Havok, Zoe Kravitz as Angel, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.

The Times reports that the cast is still at work finishing the film before it hits theaters this summer!

“I’ve never worked under such time pressure,” director Matthew Vaughn said. “The good thing about the independent world is I never even knew if I was going to get distribution. I’m used to finishing a film and then crossing your fingers that someone is going to like it. This is totally doing it the other way around. We’ve definitely got a release date and we’ve got to make it.”

They should replace James McAvoy with Ben Mckenzie.

James McAvoy. <3 Such a great actor!! ..I love most of the movies where he is in, so I’ll probably watch it. But ehm, seriously that’s supposed to be the X-Men?!…
