I don't see how. They're different locations.

First Class mansion = Englefield House, Berkshire

Downton Abbey = Highclere Castle, Hampshire

This was all before LOTR too. If you think McKellen was a big star and was on every director and casting director's list for every older British character pre-2000, then you are sadly mistaken.
McKellen worked out great, ultimately. Partly because of the dynamic/chemistry he has with Patrick Stewart - both are solid British stage actors.

But if we were wanting someone more intense/embittered and more European (ie truer to the comics and cartoons), then Rutger Hauer would have been a more fitting choice (and certainly more believable as the older version of Fassbender).

They are probally filing Mansion scenes In Canada.We have had no Indication of any
filming In London.

If the past scenes are In 1960's then havok Is probally coming back.

From past It will likely be around march till full cast Is revealed.

I wonder, if for whatever reason they can't get Halle, Anna or Ellen back... they might at least bring back some of the background characters seen in the original movies such as, Jubilee, or Siryn,...

too, round out the team with some female characters, as well as it could be a good way to show that some time has past between the movies, and that these characters that we saw as young students, are now grown, an are now on the team...

They may do some location filming In Washington DC but likely the bulk of filming will be In canada.Bryan went to Aulstralia In a viewing of X-Men films so It's possable some work could be done there as well.

By feeling the next casting announcement will be like In november at least a couple more first Class returnees confired and at least 1 of the Original trilogy returnees
announced.

The picture of the Mansions on that board were of all the different mansions they used for all past films, not just one.

Oy! I hope you're not saying (I'm pretty sure you're not) McKellen should be more like Fassbender. I'll take McKellen's Magneto over Fassbender's anyday.

The other major Magneto COntender was Terrence Stamp.

The younger Magneto should be more like Mckellen.

I am looking forward to seeing with singer now firmly at helm again what he does with James Mcavoy,Michael fassbender,and Jennifer Lawrence as younger versions of
Xavier,Magneto,and Mystique.Bryan I am sure will do better creating contunity between First Class and trilogy.

Gotcha. Couldnt they technically use both here given the story and multiple timeline possibilities?

Even though it would be great to read more casting news/announcement, I don't think Bryan Singer has to announce every returning actor from the original trilogy/First Class cast. The casting news could just start popping out again once they start filming the movie.

Yes and if they bring those two back, they would have been promoted as a teacher or as a X-woman already. X3 already happened 6 to 8 years ago and they should be done being a student in the Xavier Institute. I don't see the younger characters in the X-men trilogy like Rogue, Colossus, Iceman, Shadowcat, Jubilee and Siryn (even though I don't really think they would bring her back) as students anymore well unless the Xavier Institute also offers college education.
