Actor shot to fame thanks to Inglourious Basterds

Michael Fassbender Receives Magneto Offer

on June 18, 2010


The X-Men franchise is about to start from scratch, and it looks like Michael Fassbender will take on the coveted role of Magneto. The actor is still being eyed for a gig in Marc Webb's Spider-Man, but a deal with 20th Century for X-Men: First Class is reportedly closer to happening.

The X-Men franchise is still a lucrative one. Despite receiving harsh reviews, 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand raked in more than $450 million worldwide. 

X-Men: First Class is slated to hit theaters on June 3, 2011.
