2 stunning new international X-Men: First Class posters

Two international posters for X-Men: First Class have been released, and in them we get to see Charles Xavier (the budding Professor X) and Erik Lensherr (the nascent Magneto) reflect on the future ... literally.

(Take a look at the water at their feet.)

The posters are cool, but we're strongly reminded of a poster for Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace, where young Anakin cast a shadow of Darth Vader onto the wall of his Tattooine home. And then there's the poster for Smallville.

Even though these posters are "international," they seem targeted at the European market: Charles stands in front of a stately home, and Erik is framed by a concentration camp. They're also very spare. If they were Asian posters, they would have a lot more going on.

Still, we're officially counting the time until we get to see more of that origin story (as of today, three months and two days).
