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.

    This is a chance for kids to connect to WW2 history even if it is peripheral. The fact that many young kids do not know their history is all the more reason to show them a glimpse of it through a medium they understand: comics, movies, tv. Perhaps it will encourage them to investigate history further and in more detail. Kids are curious by nature. It is only a matter of how the information is presented to them. A good story will connect the viewer to anything — even a movie about a rock and a feather.

    Do not place your values upon youth. There is more to the world beyond your own scope.
