The movie “Magneto” is a look at the early life of Eric Lensherr and his friendship with Charles Xavier, and how the one-time allies became mortal enemies.
Shit ,Magneto On Hold
Magneto is Dead. Writer David Goyer says
I’m not sure that film is going to be made. The studio has a wealth of potential stories, and they have to stand back and decide which ones to make. And Magneto, I think, is at the back of the queue. Maybe it’ll get made in five years – who knows? I can tell you that Ian McKellen won’t be playing the character the whole way through. We used Lola technology in X-Men 3 to de-age Ian and Patrick for one scene, but it’s very expensive. To do that for a two-hour movie would be prohibitive financially. And to find a younger actor to fill Ian’s shoes, that’s pretty daunting. It’s not easy.
So that’s it then, the Magneto movie is dead with no reports to start script writing or anything further.
