Michael Fassbender Confirmed For Magneto In Next X-Men Movie

Michael Fassbender Confirmed For Magneto In Next X-Men Movie


Jay Cochran - June 25, 2010
As we reported last week, actor Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) had been offered the role of Magneto in the upcoming Matthew Vaughn directed 'X-Men: First Class' movie. Now according to the website Showbiz411, which first broke word that Fassbender was being considered for the role, we now have confirmation that the actor has accepted the part and will in fact be playing the Master of Magnetism.

Fassbender will join actor James McAvoy (Wanted) who will play Charles Xavier and the only other cast member to be confirmed for First Class at this time.

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS begins production this summer for a June 3, 2011 release. Bryan Singer, who conceived the story for FIRST CLASS and directed the original X-Men and its sequel X2, is producing along with Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.
