Michael Fassbender: Young Magneto in X-Men: First Class!

Michael Fassbender is rumored to play a young Magneto, aka Erik Lensherr, in X-Men: First Class.

The 33-year-old German-Irish actor, who starred in Inglorious Basterds, will be directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) starting this summer in London.

According to EW, “the film will depict the early years of the relationship between Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Lensherr, two young mutants who are first discovering their powers… They later become enemies, leading to an eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

    A masculine guy…..I so love the masculine guys. JJ should feature more masculine guys instead of mop haired teeny tots and gimpy looking metros. We girls want hot looking men like Michael to ogle…with muscles and scruff and sweat. He’s gorgeous.

    Yesss–Michael is fantastic, in his indie films, television series, and big screen appearances. I’m happy he’s gotten a lead; he deserves it.

    If only it was really going to be that fight. LoL. But this is good news as this has a potenital to have better cast in it than the original. I just hope some fool doesn’t try and add a Young Wolverine to the cast. It sounds more like they’re going with a group closer to the comics, but that Magneto’s first Brotherhood may be different.
