I thought the teaser poster for X-Men: First Class was terrific. It was followed by a couple of nice international posters. Then it all suddenly went downhill with two posters that were so awful that they looked fake. The posters were so bad that it even spurred Super Punch to hold a contest were artists could submit their own designs. I presumed that Fox would get the message and up their game. Sadly, that message was clearly not received as a new poster for the film is beyond bland, awkwardly photoshopped, and sticks poor Lucas Till all the way in the back that’s he rendered insignificant.
Hit the jump to check out the poster along with a new image of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique. X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. The film opens June 3rd. For all of our coverage on the flick, click here.

Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: First Class:
X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
