Fassbender's hopes for X-Men sequel

Michael Fassbender hopes the X-Men: First Class sequel will examine the creation of Professor X

Michael Fassbender has revealed he's hoping the X-Men: First Class sequel will explore how Charles Xavier became Professor X.

The A Dangerous Method actor plays Erik Lensherr/Magneto in the franchise, and told Collider he thinks the spotlight might be thrown onto James McAvoy's character in the next instalment.

He said: "Hopefully, I'll get in at ground level and start putting some ideas together myself, with James and, hopefully, Matthew [Vaughn], and we can see what happens next.

"I'm really interested to see what happens to Charles, in the next one, and see how he becomes Professor X 'cause we got to see Erik turn into Magneto, in the first one."

He joked: "It will be interesting to see who shaves Charles' head. When he's drunk one night, the mutants will go in there and shave his head and shave off his eyebrows. Maybe."

Director Vaughn has previously speculated that the sequel could be set "in the latter part of the 1960s where you've got The Stones, The Beatles, Flower Power".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
