    With those rumors of Giancarlo Esposito being considered as Professir X and Bryan Cranston stated, that Mr. Sinister might be the character he‘s interested to play... were does Aaron Paul fit in?

    My fancast was that he could be Werwolf by Night in the Moon Knight series, but he might fit into the X-Men franchise as well.

    No to Sonequa Martin-Green as Storm. She is insufferable to watch in Star Trek Discovery. I'd rather have someone else more watchable and likeable.

    My idea for Magneto's origin story to fit with the modern day MCU is to make him a refugee of the wars that broke up Yugoslavia. Those wars took place in the early 90's, so it would put Magneto in his late 40's or early 50's. Instead of German, he could be Serb, Croatian or Bosnian. If they keep the Holocaust survivor origin story, they might have do the whole "let's freeze him in the late 1940's and revive him in the modern day" thing, but since they already did that to Cap and Bucky, I doubt they do that to Magneto. He could still hate humans, but it would be a war closer to the present time, rather than World War II.

    Bryan Cranston is too old for Mister Sinister. And no to Daniel Cudmore again. It's not like he was great at Colossus. No need to prolong our again by having him as Juggernaut now.

    Brenton as Scott. Very good idea. I can see that. He's a leader-type.

    It's starting to narrow down to some choices

    Cyclops: Brenton Thwaites?
    Jean Grey: Evan Rachel Wood/Imogen Poots?
    Mystique: Lily James/Imogen Poots?
    Wolverine: Jamie Bell/Michael Angarano/Daniel Radcliffe?

    Then I have one suggestion for Magneto.
    I don't care that he was in Logan, Richard E. Grant would suit the role.
    And Freddie Highmore can play Erik in Flashbacks, when he went from good guy to villain.

    Now we have to find a Xavier and a Storm

    Richard E.Grant is already in Loki - rumored to be Kang or Old Loki (no spoiler here because the only thing we know, is that he‘s cast)

    Don’t know, if you guys have watched Dark (best series right now)
    Mark Waschke was awesome and very sinister in it. Since he‘s german, he‘d be great as Magneto

    people suggesting actors that are already playing a superhero.... do you guys know there are many other talented and hot actors out there, and who would be fresh faces?

    I'll never understand why some fans just fancast the same names over and over.
    Totally uninspired

    Michael Keaton, Marissa Tomei, Jon Favreau AND above all Robert Downey Jr. we’re the vehicles to push this movie...
    RDJ‘s role was bigger than any of the supporting cast

    I really want to see a confident, bad ass Cyclops. He’s supposed to be an awesome fighter, strategist, and leader. Someone like
    Jonathan Groff maybe? Love him in Mindhunters. I could see someone like Armie Hammer as well.

    Not Brenton Thwaites? Do people really have to keep suggesting names for the mutants when we have found ones that work.

    Who knows how much longer he’ll play night wing, especially with the multiverse concept being introduced and HBO Max.
