The odds of audiences seeing Sir Ian McKellan as Magneto again are getting dimmer.
According to producer Lauren Shuler-Donner, the long rumored project centering on the X-Men villain has been “swallowed up” by production on “X-Men: First Class.”
“You know, there’s internal discussions but probably not. It kind of got incorporated into this one, a lot of it,” she said.
Hrm… Compelling drama canceled in favor of teen angst… Well, there’s another reason not to go to the movies.
Here is yet another frannchise being flushed down the toilet. Let’s see- A world Class Star vs some unknowns most likely. Seems a sure winner to me LOL. Well this will pay for another month or 2 of Netflix by me missing this one.
KG from DC says
This is bad news, why?
Well it seems the Twilight bandwagon has even struck the X-Men. Cutesy young actors, pretending to be younger than they really are, with super powers. The movie theaters will be packed and story purists be damned!! Get ready for a whole stream of formulaic, mediore, and special effects laden sequels.
