The next X-Men film, First Class, is moving further into production. With filimng to begin in August, Kick Ass director Matthew Vaughn has been on the hunt to cast the roles for the numerous characters appearing in the prequel. Both Aaron Johnson ( Kick Ass) and Andrew Garfield (Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus) have reportedly read for roles, and this week further casting rumors have surfaced.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Fassbender has now signed on for the role of Magneto, turning down offers to play the villain in the upcoming Spider-man film. (Does this shoot down rumors of the Lizar's involvement? No idea).

Also Showbiz 411 claims that Benjamin Walker, most notable for his role in Flags of Our Fathers, will play the role of Hank McCoy, more commonly known as Beast.
