X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be hitting theaters on May 1st but there's been little information on the 'Magneto' origin movie.
spoke with the X-men Origins Producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, who confirmed that the film is still in the works.
“I think first we wanted to make Wolverine, and then David [Goyer, the attached director] took another film, and there wasn’t a lot of time,” she said. “But I’d like to make that – we’ll have to see.”
Details of the plot have remained vague thus far, but Shuler Donner was happy to tell us shed a little light on things. “We have a script on Magneto which is actually sort of Magneto and Charles Xavier,” she said. “It’s Erik and Charles in their early, early years.”
“The professor meets Magneto after the war and while they bond over the realisation that they are alike in their special powers, their differences soon turn them into enemies.”
