Is ‘X-Men’ Cast Pic Fake? Is Spider-Man Jay Walking?

Tuesday, January 18 by

We’ve got new photos for both the new Marc Web Spider-Man and X-Men: First Class. So DC comics can officially eat it today. The Spider-Man shot isn’t an official still. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to tell what it really is. It’s blurry, it’s got a Spider-Man-shaped person running through traffic in downtown LA (filmed to be NYC, of course), and that’s pretty much it. I guess this proves that they are actually filming the movie. Of course, no one doubted that they were filming, but still, it’s nice to be sure. No word on whether the pictured Spidey is Andrew Garfield or a stuntman. One thing’s for certain. It’s not Tobey Maguire. (/Film)

In seemingly more “official” news, we’ve got a somewhat obscured photo of the cast of X-Men: First Class in their costumes. It would appear that Professor X is standing. He could be in a very tall, backless wheelchair, but that’s pretty unlikely. Beyond that, it’s hard to know what to make of their outfits, except for January Jones as Emma Frost. She is looking pretty sharp. (Playlist)

NOTE: MSN has pulled the pic for unspecified reasons, and some rumors are circulating that it’s fake, while others are saying it’s simply “unauthorized.” We will leave this post up until we get some definitive proof, if only because James McAvoy and January Jones are so damn attractive.
