IS "KICK-ASS" AARON JOHNSON A NEW CYCLOPS OR MAGNETO IN "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS"

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?

  1. Wouldn't Cyclops be just a baby though? If Magneto and Xavier are young men in the movie? Otherwise it messes with the timeline established in the previous movies. Or are they chucking those all together?

  2. I've no idea whatsoever, Alex, but I guess all is possible when you are a superhero :))

  4. He's way too young to play Cyclops, although I don't mind this to happen. He's a cool guy - charming and hilarious! :)

  5. Who is he? What have we seen him in? This should be a good movie, but I'd see anything with James McAvoy in it.

    he would be a smokin' and magnetizing Magneto :))

    @Neb
    well, as far as I've got it, everybody will be young in this movie :) He is very charming :)

    @Michele
    you've seen him last month in KICK-ASS in the lead role, and he is also popular as a model, as you can see in this pictures he is also a Calvin Klein model :)) I'm sure you've enjoyed the pics :)

  8. I can't look at him the same after I found out his girlfriend is like 3 times his age and pregnant.

  9. Angie, I was shocked too when I've discovered that. He didn't strike me as a guy with such taste. He is like 18 and she is like more than 40 .... if I remember correctly...

  10. He should be 40 (and not his girlfriend) if he wants to play the role of Magneto. :)). Even James McAvoy is a little young to play Charles Xavier ("First Class" title notwithstanding). They could "age" McAvoy, but not Aaron Johnson. Not enough for role of Magneto anyway.

    Aaron could become Cyclops, or some other student.

  11. Bels, FIRST CLASS will see both Xavier and Magneto as very young people, it's sort of a teen version of X-MEN :)

  12. You're not right about that Dezz. First Class features Cyclops, Jean, and other X-Men as teenagers. Charles Xavier and Magneto are still their seniors. Almost all of X-Men were little kids, babies, or mot even born, in the time when Charles and Magneto were young.

  13. yes, Bels, but no one said that those super heroes will be in the movie. Xavier and Magneto will be meeting some new heroes we haven't met before. The Cyclops story is just a rumor.

  14. I hope Aaron Johnson will play Cyclops.
