    'X-Men's 'Magneto' gets his own spinoff

    Fox attracts Goyer for 'Magneto'

    David Goyer has been drawn in by the power of "Magneto."

    The multihyphenate, whose thriller "The Invisible" opens today, has come aboard to develop with an eye to direct the "X-Men" spin-off for Twentieth Century Fox.

    The project, which is in the early stages of development, focuses on a young Magneto, the villain of the "X-Men" movies, and his friendship with a young Professor X, and how the two eventually became mortal enemies. The characters would not be played by Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart, who originated them in the series, but by actors in their 20s.
    Fox and Marvel are already hard at work on another "X-Men" spin-off, "Wolverine." That project, which already has a working screenplay, is on the fast-track hunt for a director and will likely be made before "Magneto."

    These are some wonderful characters, and a fantastic opportunity for some young actors. Any candidates?

    Sounds interesting.

    I thought the original plan was to use the technology that made Magneto and Professor Xavier look younger in X3 for the Magneto spin-off. I guess it would have worked if the characters weren't planned to be in their 20s for this film.

    It'll be weird, but interesting to see how this film works out without Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.
