So finally the first official cast image from X-Men: First Class has arrived online, and my initial reaction is a resounding 'Meh'. There's something about this project that says either 'TV Pilot' or simply 'Huge flop' all over it.
Of course, I have no basis for that, but the image just looks kinda like a cosplay photo and the concept of the film just feels rather weak. It'll be great for comics nuts to see Charles and Erik as friends and whatnot, but after X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine were both less than stellar, do movie audiences still give a hoot about the X-Men?
Oh, and will this one somehow tie in with the Marvel Movie Universe that has been established?
