Bryan Singer Tweets Magneto Pic
Fassbender goes flying

Michael Fassbender, you absolute cheat. Here we were, thinking that all your powers in X-Men: First Class were the result of pure mind control and astonishing acting, and now Bryan Singer has revealed you as a rank liar needing a platform to levitate while shooting Days Of Future Past. We may never trust you again. Next you’ll be telling us the runway in Fast & Furious 6 isn’t real either. 

Fass-bitterness aside, we’re happy to be back on Singer’s one-man photo PR parade for Future Past, this time with the director tweeting an image of Erik Lehnsherr levitating via the assistance of the effects crew with the tongue-in-cheek caption, “The dark knight rises.”

It’s just the latest dispatch from the Robert Capa of the mutant movie world. Singer is clearly aiming for some sort of record for the director tweeting the most pictures while also shooting a film. Joss Whedon, the gauntlet lies at the toes of your stylish yet affordable boots.

Days Of Future Past finds the X-Men in two time periods fighting to stop a dark alternate future. In addition to the Fass-man, the cast includes James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin and Daniel Cudmore. The film itself will be out on July 17 next year.

RE: It's obvious really
L: JPMARTIN I think a degree of creative licence has to be afforded here, because I agree with Belfast Boy - the way in which he 'flies' is a bit suspect. If he can effectively project a magnetic field around himself, this would seem to suggest he could either push metal away, or pull it toward him (like a magnet). Once he contacts the metal though gravity would just pull him and his magic boots/metal platform back to earth. I think the idea in the comics is that he dire More

RE: Fass-man?
L: BelfastBoy Very nerdy question, but as a non-comic book reader, can anyone tell me if there's a comic book explanation for how Magneto can fly? There's no obvious connection to his mutant ability, so how does he manage it? n a similar way to a maglev train - he uses the natural magnetic field of the earth and repels/propels himself along. Not sure if it's ever written that way in the comics, but it would seem to make sense. More

Empire, how did you miss the fact that what Magneto is standing on is metal? It is fairly obvious to me that the Fass-Man is elevating himself using his mutant abilities on the platform In response to BelfastBoy, I always thought there were strips of metal in his shoes/outfit which when moved would make hime 'fly' More

Fass-man?
Jeez, Empire ... is the 'Fass-Man' connected to the film's 'big bad'? Cringe, cringe, cringe. More
