Matthew Vaughn may have found his Magneto for the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie.  The Hollywood Reporter has Michael Fassbender donning the red and purple duds and using his power to shape the future of the X-Men universe.

Fassbender’s big Hollywood break came with a key turn in “Inglourious Basterds,” where he played Canadian spy Archie Hicox. He has a role in “Jonah Hex,” which opens tomorrow, and stars in Neil Marshall’s Roman action movie “Centurion,” which opens in August.

It’s all in early negotiations, but we can probably expect an answer before the San Diego Comic-Con arrives, as I’m sure Marvel and everyone else will be hyping the heck out of this movie.
