Wait For Magneto

In an interview with SuperHero Hype, director of the "X-men" spin-off "X-Men Origins: Magneto," David Goyer said that the release date of "Magneto" would decide on the how "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" does in theaters this May.

"I think they like the script and they're just waiting to see what happens with 'Wolverine,'" Goyer said in the interview. "I don't think they would consider moving forward until the movie comes out."

According to MTV News, "According to the official plot synopsis for 'X-Men Origins: Magneto,' the film explores the World War II time period in which Eric Lensherr (who later becomes Magneto) is a prisoner of a concentration camp and discovers his mutant abilities — a period which was briefly touched upon in the first 'X-Men' movie. Charles Xavier (Professor X) will also factor into the story, and the meeting between Xavier and Lensherr, their subsequent friendship and eventual parting of ways is detailed in the film.

Naturally, young versions of each character would be required for the film, but no casting has been announced thus far."

Yes, I've always thought they should do a movie on the backstory between Xavier and Magneto...

It would make an interesting set-up for "First Class" in my opinion.
