When it comes to casting a large group of superheroes, Matthew Vaughn has his hands full with X-Men: First Class.  The latest casting news has Caleb Landry Jones to play Banshee.


An Irish mutant, Banshee possesses a “sonic scream,” capable of harming enemies’ auditory systems and causing physical vibrations. He is named after the banshee, a legendary ghost from Irish mythology, said to possess a powerful cry, although the banshee spirit is invariably female.

A former Interpol agent and NYPD officer, Banshee was always a decade older than most of the X-Men and had only a relatively short tenure as a full-time X-Man.

    I think he really looks the part. I can’t wait for Xmen: Evolution the Movie to come out. The cast looks great. Wait … what? This is First Class you say? I’m confused….
