It’s our first real glimpse of the film, which has come up against numerous roadblocks since it was first announced back in 2010, losing two leading men (Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Whishaw) and a director (Bryan Singer, who was fired from the project after an on-set clash) along the way.

However, the movie is finally nearing completion, now with Kick Ass director Dexter Fletcher at the helm – and the new pics look pretty spectacular. Check them out below.
