Last month X-Men producer Lauren Shulder Donner pretty much confirmed that X-Men Origins: Magneto, which had been in development limbo for 2 years, was dead. I can understand why, I mean out of all the planned X-Men movies Magneto would probably perform worst at the box office, unless they could somehow get Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt involved.
The script revolved around a young Magneto getting revenge on Nazi’s and befriending a young Charles Xavier. It’s not really blockbuster material, however I would love to see a Magneto movie at some point in the future. The character may not be as commercial as Wolverine but he is far more interesting. 20th Century Fox just need to find a director who could make a dark, gritty and badass movie.
In the meantime (which could be a few years) here’s a cool X-Men Origins: Magneto fan made trailer you can be watching. It uses footage from all three movies, so (if you can) just imagine everyone looking younger. It also doubles up as a tribute to the character Ian McKellen brought to life so magnificently.
