After the mediocre X-Men Last Stand that wiped out most of the mutants for no good reason, leaving Magneto alive and recovering his powers– we’re apparently now destined or doomed to endure “Young Magneto: The Early Years”.
Hollywood executives who have all the originally or a mental defective with a three word vocabulary are apparently planning to capitalize on the utter lack of success of Young Hannibal or Hannibal Begins or whatever that abomination was called to produce Young Magneto.
[Ian] McKellen’s participation in “Magneto” will likely be limited, since the film is an origin story. In a storyline hinted at by the original “X-Men” films, Magneto comes to grips with his mutant ability to manipulate metal objects as he and his parents try to survive in Auschwitz. Magneto meets Professor Xavier (played as the wheelchair-bound mutant leader by Patrick Stewart) when Xavier is a soldier liberating the concentration camp.
Magneto hones his powers by hunting down and killing Nazi war criminals that tortured him, and his lust for vengeance turns Xavier and Magneto into enemies. Both characters will be played by actors in their 20s.
I could point out that this is the same concept as Young Hannibal but I’d be wasting precious breath. What was the definition of insanity again?
