The cast is really shaping up for X-Men: First Class now. We’ve had a slew of casting confirmations over recent days and now Deadline are reporting that Kevin Bacon has been offered the villain role in the film.
Magneto has been the main villain throughout the trilogy, however there was a time when he and Xavier worked together to fight a common enemy. We’ve had no word so far on who that will be, however it could be Mr. Sinister who uses genetic material from other mutants to give himself a vast array of superhuman abilities. Having an all-powerful villain will definitely give Magneto and Xavier a challenge.
I’m actually quite impressed with the cast Matthew Vaughn has managed to get together over the past two months. Most of the cast are talented up and coming actors who were thought to have a bright future before being cast. Hopefully Bryan Singer and Vaughn have put together a great script for them to work with.
