Oliver Platt discusses ‘X-Men: First Class’, Man in Black

Oliver Platt plays the role of “Man in Black” in X-Men: First Class and Reelzchannel spoke with Platt, beginning with asking who “exactly is the Man in Black?”

“The Man In Black runs a super secret division of the CIA devoted to investigating the application of mental telepathy and paranormal power in military defense,” Platt tells Reelzchannel. :He has long been a laughing stock of the Agency because of this. His department is known as ‘Division X.'”

The he explains how the role fits in, saying that “When Charles [James McAvoy] and Mystique [Jennifer Lawrence] become ensnared with the Agency, the Man in Black diverts them to his division with a deft bureaucratic sleight of hand. Erik [aka Magneto (Michael Fassbender)] soon joins them and The X-Men flourish under MIB’s protection.”

Platt then joked about his ideal mutant power, “it would be to plant ideas in powerful people’s minds” and listed his favorite comic books: “Grew up with Superman, Batman, Green Hornet, Asterix (yes he’s a superhero!!). Love the new Batman and Iron Man flicks.”
