Since the announcement of James McAvoy as Prof. X in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, rumors have been circling about who else will fill out the cast. ShowBiz411.com reports that Michael Fassbender (INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS) is director Matthew Vaughn's choice to play Magneto. It's also rumored that he's talking to Sony about playing a villain in the SPIDER-MAN reboot. So he's certainly making the Marvel villain rounds.
