David S. Goyer will be directing Foxâ€™ Magneto which revolves around a young mutant from the marvel universe before he eventually turns into a villain.
Goyer is well known for his work on Super Hero films having worked on Batman Begins and Blade.
Not only will we see a young Magneto but there is also a very good chance that we will see a young Professor Xavier, mentor to the X-Men. Both characters should be in their twenties and so Ian McKellen’s services will not be needed.
