Re: What is DOFP setting the groundwork for?
I think Fassbender's portrayal of Magneto would be the greatest loss if they were to leave the FIRST CLASS series behind. For me that's the big one. McKellen's wonderful as Magneto, but he's getting on a bit, and his age will definitely limit what they can show Magneto doing in future sequels. Is that agist? Maybe I'm wrong, but I see much more potential for Fassbender as Mags...Magneto in all his fierce, powerful glory is something we still haven't seen on film yet.
However, I guess some people would argue that we've seen enough of him, perhaps it's time to move onto other villains.
