This story has been the number one mystery around the Net last few days: is young Aaron Johnson going to put on a new super hero suit after playing the lead role in "Kick-Ass" recently? He was spotted on a meeting with director Matthew Vaughn and James McAvoy last week in London, which immediately raised rumors about Aaron possibly getting a role in "X-Men: First Class" which is being directed by Matthew Vaughn (who also directed "Kick-Ass") and we already know that James McAvoy got the part of young professor Xavier in it, so which role could Aaron get? Guys over at "SlashFilm" suspect it could be either the role of young Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, or the role of young Magneto. What's even more interesting about this mystery is the fact that earlier this month Aaron has met with Bryan Singer (the man who was supposed to direct the "First Class" in the first place) about the role in "Jack the Giant Killer", the project that stopped Singer from helming the "X-Men" prequel. Since Singer is still producing "First Class" did he draft Aaron for the role of Cyclops or Magneto then?
