Meet the new Prof. X and Magneto for X-Men: First Class
A few weeks ago, James McAvoy (Wanted), right picture, signed on to play a young Professor Charles Xavier for the new movie X-Men: First Class. Now the Michael Fassbender (300, Inglourious Basterds) has signed on and will play a young Erick Lehnsherr/Magneto. Fassbender had the choice to play either Magneto or The Lizard in the new Spider-Man reboot. I am very happy he chose the role of Magneto because there are more options to come out of it in the future. X-Men: First Class will focus on Xavier and Lehnsherr as young mutants who dream of a better tomorrow for mutants and humans but ultimately split ways. An official plot hasn't been released but you should probably expect the original X-Men class to show up at some point in the film.
