X-Men Reboot Fan Cast Part 1—Xavier's X-Men
This is part 1 of a 3-part fan cast of a rebooted X-Men Trilogy.
The first film would be titled "Xavier's X-Men." Magneto has recently been elected President of Genosha, the newly created mutant state, defeating his longtime friend and foe Professor Charles Xavier. Xavier accepts his defeat, but has suspicions about Magneto's leadership. While Magneto, Jason Wyngarde/Mastermind represents the island nation in the U.N., ensuring that the international community has the proper impression of Genosha. Still, suspicious, Xavier sends his team of mutants Cyclops, Jean, Angel, Beast, and Iceman on a mission to investigate the true conditions of the island. The X-Men are stunned by what they find, but before they could act, they are confronted and defeated by Magneto and the Brotherhood. Cyclops manages to escape the island, and returns to Xavier alone.
This would not be a direct adaption of the comics, but rather a combination of different stories (i.e., Giant X-Men #1 and others).
The Cast of Xavier's X-Men
The X-Men—consisting of leader and mentor Professor Xavier, and his team and former students Cyclops, Jean Grey, Angel, Beast, and Iceman.
Professor Charles Xavier—Ralph Fiennes
Ralph Fiennes is a fine and accomplished actor who, like Patrick Stewart, would bring the intellectual and refined presence that is required of the leader of the X-Men.
Scott Summers/Cyclops—Chris Pine
Chris Pine, to me, has shown that he has what it takes to be a leading man, and that is what I would intend for Cyclops to be. He’s a little taller and would bring a bigger presence to the role than the last actor.
Jean Grey—Bryce Dallas Howard
As a beautiful, talented, and most importantly, natural redheaded actress, Bryce Dallas Howard would be an excellent Jean Grey.
Warren Worthington III/Angel—Philip Wincester
Philip Wincester is a charming and handsome actor who would bring those qualities out as the young, wealthy Warren Worthington III and his alter ego Angel.
Hank McCoy/Beast—Joel Edgerton
Despite what the image shows, this version of Beast would be his pre-transformation form, and Joel Edgerton has the physique to portray this version of Beast well. I’m also sure that he’d be able to eloquently deliver a few, concise lines from Shakespeare and other literary works.
Bobby Drake/Iceman—Charlie Hunnam
Charlie Hunnam would be a good choice to portray Iceman, particularly his jovial, funny, and tough personality.
The Brotherhood—consisting of Magneto, Jason Wyngarde/Mastermind, Magneto's twin children Pietro Maximoff Lensherr/Quicksilver and Wanda Maximoff Lensherr/Scarlet Witch, and former X-Men Havok and Magneto's youngest daughter Polaris, who have defected in support of Magneto's leadership of Genosha.
Eric Lensherr/Magneto—Vladimir Kulich
Vladimir Kulich has the imposing stature and the commanding voice required to play Magneto. He is 6’5”, and while he may not be German, his Czech accent is much closer than some generic European (British) accent. From what I have seen, Kulich is a good actor who I think could rival, maybe even surpass McKellen’s Magneto.
Jason Wyngarde/Mastermind—Hugh Laurie
It would be interesting to see Hugh Laurie as a charming, persuasive, and of course, manipulative Mastermind, who I believe would do a terrific job portraying two sides of Jason Wyngarde.
Pietro Maximoff Lensherr/Quicksilver—Alexander Skarsgård
A brooding, dry, and quick-witted Quicksilver would be well portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård.
Wanda Maximoff Lensherr/Scarlet Witch—Rachel McAdams
I’ve seen Rachel McAdams in a few movies, and she has the talent to play a very passionate Scarlet Witch.
Alex Summers/Havok—Mike Vogel
To be honest, I don’t have any particular reasons why I chose Mike Vogel to play Havok. He’s a good-looking guy, and I’ll assume that he’s a decent actor as I don’t recall seeing him in anything.
Lorna Dane Lensherr/Polaris—Kate Bosworth
I think that Kate Bosworth has bit of a resemblance to Vladimir Kulich, so she would be a good choice to play Magneto’s youngest and “favourite” child.
President Robert Kelly—Eric Roberts
Eric Roberts is a great actor who looks and sounds like a leader, and thus, would be an excellent choice to play President Kelly.
