Michael Fassbender: Choice Between Spider Man and X Men
By Roger Friedman
hollywoodnews.com: Michael Fassbender had a hot year last year, in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” and in Steve McQueen’s “The Hunger.”
He also proved himself a good dancer in Cannes with Robin Wright Penn at the big “Basterds” party.
Now Fassbender is in–as his “Basterds” David Nivenish character might say, a bit of a pickle.
He’s being pursued, I hear, for two different Marvel comics movies. Matthew Vaughn is said to want him for “X Men: First Class.” Fassbender would play young Professor X, played in the first three films by Ian McKellen.
At the same time, Fassbender is being pursued to play the villain in “Spider Man 4,” aka “No Toby Maguire Here.”
Two different movies from Marvel, but two different studios: Fox for the first, and Columbia for the second. He can’t do both.
