Director David Goyer is set to work on a Magneto movie. No release date yet though, as the movie has not even kicked in production. But the screenplay has already been drafted by Scriptwriter Sheldon Turner. That’s why we may nonetheless have an official synopsis of this Magneto movie:
The storyline will heavily involve Professor X, the wheelchair-using X-Men leader. That character was a soldier in the allied force that liberated the concentration camps. 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.
Unfortunately the movie Magneto is in stand by for now because Fox can’t devote resources to a new project until Wolverine is out. Too bad Marvel can’t take back the rights of the Magneto movie! But if Fox keep postponing it, Marvel will get it back around 2012 (would be sad to have to wait so long though…).
Let’s hope there will be some crossover between the upcoming Wolverine movie and Magneto. I pray for Fox to learn from Marvel’s success!
