It seems that Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) is destined for the Marvel universe, though which project should he sign on for? Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class or the Marc Webb Spider-Man reboot? Decisions, decisions.
Vaughn wants Fassbender to play a young Magneto opposite James McAvoy's Professor Charles Xavier in Fox's X-Men prequel, while Sony thinks the actor would be perfect for an unnamed villainous role in the Webb take on Spider-Man. More after the jump:
Ideally Fassbender could do both, but Showbiz 411 says the production schedules will not permit such harmony, especially since the projects are in development at two different studios. First Class is targeting a June 3, 2011 release date, though so far they only have a director (Vaughn), a writer (Kick-Ass' Jane Goldman), and a single cast member (McAvoy). Official news will likely replace the rumors soon enough if the prequel is truly on track for release next summer.
