X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Character Posters for Magneto, Mystique & Riptide

Here are three new X-Men: First Class character posters featuring Magneto, Mystique and Riptide. A couple of the posters are international. I've also included quotes from the actors describing the characters they play.

Michael Fassbender on Magneto:

At the start of the movie we get introduced to Erik as a boy. We start in the concentration camps with him and it cuts to 20 years later and it's the early 60s and it's Erik as a grown man. He's on a quest to get Sebastian Shaw, played by Kevin Bacon. Shaw had him in these concentration camps - and as we know the Nazis were doing lots of experimentation with all sorts of things like measuring skull size and brain size and running experiments on human beings, essentially. Shaw is trying to unleash this power in Magneto - he's recognised that he can manipulate metal - and so we catch up with Erik on a quest to basically hunt Shaw down.

Jennifer Lawrence on Mystique:

Raven, or Mystique, is a shape shifter, and when she's in her natural, blue, scaly, red hair form she also has superhuman agility. She's young and she's a normal teenager, really, just dealing with insecurities. She's insecure about being a mutant and she slowly grows to really accept it and evolve herself. She's been shape shifting for a long time, but she's really just learning about her superhuman ability. She discovers that in the movie.

Alex Gonzalez on Riptide:

My character is Riptide. Riptide is not very popular as a villain, but in the beginning he started working with Mr. Sinister. In the movie he doesn’t have any relationship with Mr. Sinister, so it’s not like in the comic book. He’s working with Sebastian Shaw, played by Kevin Bacon. Basically, he can control the wind – he can throw gusts with his hand. But when he’s very angry, he can create a tornado around him. It’s fun, but it’s a little bit difficult to create in real life. I have to put myself on a spinning trailer, which spins very fast. So the first fifteen minutes it’s funny, but after that it’s a bit dangerous for other people. They need to carry umbrellas, because I feel like I’m about to throw up at any second! It’s very easy to get sick.
