‘Magneto’ Movie Seems Even More Unlikely
The man who penned X-Men Origins: Magneto, David Goyer, has said the movie should not be a priority for Fox, further increasing doubts that it will ever be made.
Franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner recently claimed that – while Goyer’s script is ‘brilliant’ – the film was a lower priority than the planned Deadpool movie, a Wolverine sequel and X-Men: First Class.
“I tend to agree with her,” FlashForward co-creator Goyer told MTV News. “Fox is still trying to figure out what they want to do, whether or not they’ll do a different X-Men movie next or another Wolverine movie next.
“If they want to make Magneto, that’s awesome. In the meantime, I’m just going to move on with my other projects.
“Even taking FlashForward aside, I’m booked up for another year and a half. I have no complaints.”
It’s a good job that Ian McKellan has already said that he wouldn’t play the comic villain anymore – he might not live to see a Magneto movie anyway.
