Director Matthew Vaughn, upset with the leaked unofficial cast image from his upcoming film X-Men: First Class, has sent /Film two new images of the film and set the record straight on that leaked image:
“I freaked out on them [Fox] yesterday. I don’t know where the hell that came from. I don’t think it’s a Fox image. It’s not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the fuck is this shit, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It’s like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn’t reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like ‘Jesus Christ’…I’m a fan of X-Men. We’re not bastardizing X-Men, I’m trying to get them back to being whole again.
But what about those costumes? Will they be in the movie? Yes…but their presence will be very minimal according to Vaughn:
“The costumes are blue and yellow as well, because fuck it, lets take it back it the original. Also, by the way, those costumes are hardly in the movie. The main costumes are like these cool 60’s James Bond…”
