Ben Walker, who was formerly set to play Beast/Hank McCoy until Fox went back on his offer, has signed up for another stint on Broadway and will no longer be available for X-Men: First Class. In a bigger tragedy, sources say that Fox did NOT let Ben go due to what fans wanted with age, but due to THE POPULARITY OF TWILIGHT. They’ve supposedly even gone as far as to check Taylor Lautner’s availability and want the X-Men to basically be the X-Boys. And with that, I quit this b*tch. TRAGEDY.
In another rumor, an obscure mutant named Willow from X-Nation 2009 is rumored to be in X-Men: First Class. But who cares anymore, am I right?
