Day in and day out, I can’t keep these rumours straight. He’s in, he’s out, he’s refused, he’s negotiating…it’s all speculation until it’s confirmed. Entertainment Weekly is the most notable source to date. EW states that Michael Fassbender is indeed up for the role of Magneto in Matthew Vaughn’s X-men: First Class, and is currently in negotiations. Hollywood Reporter is singing the same tune, and also mentions that Aaron Johnson, and Andrew Garfield have tested for roles.
Building on another casting rumour, Showbiz 411 confirms Benjamin Walker as Beast.
So, video clips for some (miniature America flags for others)!
