Because I’m sure that there are people in the world that have no idea what’s going on with the X-Men franchise, part of Fox’s marketing department’s job is going to be convincing people that X-Men: First Class is a prequel rather than a reboot. This process has already started with the film’s first trailer opening with the lines “Before he was Professor X” and “Before he was Magneto” , but now it appears that it’s extending to the posters.
The Flickr account for French website Filmosphere has revealed what may be the first two character one-sheets from Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming superhero film. The posters have the exact same taglines as the trailer did and have a pretty cool reflection effect going on, but it’s unknown how real these are. They could very well just be fan Photoshop jobs, but they could also be foreign advertisements.
