3. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen
Now with Patrick Stewart all but signed, I feel that this needs to be said: As much as I disliked much of Singer’s first two X-films, where the films shined was the relationship between Professor X and Magneto. This relationship was also very strong in “X-Men: First Class”, and I think that both Professors and Magnetos should appear and be in the new film. You can see the relationship come full circle and it would actually be nice to see the Magneto character become somewhat of a hero in order to save basically ALL of existence…human AND mutant. This inner turmoil was essential to the Magneto character in the 80’s and still lasts today. It would be interesting to see how both Ian McKellen (“Old” Magneto) and Michael Fassbender (“Young” Magneto) deal with this dilemma.
