According to Entertainment Weekly Lucas Till, who starred in Hannah Montana: The Movie and will be seen next year in Battle: Los Angeles, has been cast as Havok in X-Men: First Class. Alex Summers is the younger brother of Cyclops and can generate powerful plasma blasts which can be fired from his body (usually hands).
Yesterday Kick-Ass actor Aaron Johnson was reportedly cast as Cyclops, but EW say that isn’t the case. They also say that “these parts may not be the actual characters in the movie. Instead, this could be part of a misdirection campaign to keep some surprises from X-Men fans.” So Lucas Till may have actually been cast as Cyclops or another character instead.
Assuming what we have heard so far is correct James McAvoy will be playing Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender will be Magneto, Alice Eve is Emma Frost, and Rosamund Pike will play Moira MacTaggert. In the student department we have Nicholas Hoult as Beast and Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee. Amber Heard is thought to be up for the role of Mystique and we still have Jean, Storm and Cyclops to be confirmed.
Filming will begin next month in London under the direction of Matthew Vaughn.
