Xavier, Moira And Mystique – Bleeding Cool’s First Shots From X-Men: First Class

UPDATE: More shots here

Oxford is a lovely city. Let’s have a tourist’s eye view of the place. As Matthew Vaughan’s X-Men First Class comes to town. Fox has sent us a Cease And Desist notice over this post, featuring public shots taken in public by a member of the public. Which we think is nonsense, but Bleeding Cool is not in a position to argue. Not yet anyway. Their lawyer says we can post pictures of the sets but not of the principle actors in costume. Yes, folks this apparanetly counts as costume. But thankfully a Russian site has chosen fit to upload our photos, so for those we’ve provided links below. Thank you Russia! Okay, so…

Firstly, a part of Oxford University dressed up to look like the exterior of an old pub. The Eagle is the name of the first British sci-fi comic that spawned Dan Dare. The Eagle And Child was the Oxford pub that J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis used to meet at.

It’s a wonderful place to move heavy machinery around.

People just wander around in sixties period dress, and there’s even a bus stop to match.

But people do get wet quite a lot. Even famous people. James McAvoy as Professor X on the left spotting us, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggart on the right, oblivious.

And as James walks through the streets of Oxford with Jennifer Lawrence playing Mystique …out come the cameras. Say, I wonder if Fox will send her a Cease And Desist too?

Here’s Jennifer avoiding the wet, a closer shot of one of the happy couplesdefinitely some love triangle stuff going on here in the English rain.

Sorry about the weather folks! And the legal posturing!!
