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.”
