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.

He was beyond awesome in HUNGER!

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.

@Brightside: i second that! Can’t wait for the movie …

and AMBER HEARD will play Mystique!!!!!

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.

wait – thats not conan o’brien?!

Old news. He still hasn’t officially accepted the offer.

he was in inglorious ********. he is an ok actor. he is ok in the looks department. i wouldn’t pay $15 to see him in another movie though lol. anyways, doesn’t he have a drinking problem? he assaulted his girlfriend.

He was also great in Fishtank. He is always awesome.

This Man is PURE Talent. He is sexy and smart too, he is the one to watch for ( he has been for the last 3 years or so). I hate to say the next Daniel Day-Lewis but I am saying it!! He will rocks our socks off!!!!

He is so freaking yummy, I hope he makes a movie where he takes off his clothes!
