Michael Fassbender returning as Magneto for ‘Dark Phoenix’ but not ‘New Mutants’

While the future of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise was a little unclear after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, the studio finally confirmed their next three films last month as Deadpool 2New Mutants, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

The first two films have already begun casting, while Dark Phoenix has been rather silent, though many have assumed it will be continuing where Apocalypse left off with its cast.

A prior report from THR also made mention that James McAvoy would return as Professor Xavier for Dark Phoenix, but would remain absent for Josh Boone’s New Mutants.

Now the same can be said for Michael Fassbender as Magneto, according to reports from MTV: “Want to know Fassbender’s X-MEN future? Bet big on him appearing in DARK PHOENIX but not NEW MUTANTS. Oh, I just saw Michael Fassbender BTW,” Horotwitz wrote on Twitter.

The core cast’s contracts expired with Apocalypse, but both actors expressed willingness to return for future films shows promise for the new film and future plans. Look to hear if the studio can lock in Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, though given her vocal disinterest in the role and franchise.

Sophie Turner will return to play Jean with Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee all back to play Storm, Cyclops, and the Nightcrawler respectively.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set for release on November 2, 2018.
