Magneto Killed By Young Upstarts

“X-Men” film producer Lauren Shuler Donner tells Crave Online that we won’t be seeing an “X-Men Origins: Magneto” movie any more, mainly because the upcoming ‘First Class’ will use much of it.

Asked about the possibility of a Magneto stand-alone film, she said “there’s internal discussions but probably not It kind of got incorporated into [X-Men: First Class], a lot of it.”

She confirmed that parts of David Goyer’s “Magneto” script will appear in “First Class” which chronicles the young Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) when they were close friends who worked together to stop a common threat.
