Michael Fassbender portrays Erik Lehnsherr, who has the power to control magnetism. Lehnsherr is determined to exact revenge on the monstrous evil who “created” him.

Michael Fassbender’s fame has had a slow-build over the last few years — appearing in “300” and “Inglorious Bastards” in addition to a few artsy, well-respected movies that us Americans aren’t as interested in. But his notoriety is about to go through the roof with this coming summer’s release of the X-men prequel, “X-Men: First Class” in which he plays Erik Lensherr, i.e. the evil Magneto, as a young man.

While he was promoting “Jane Eyre” – Cary Fukunaga’s interpretation of the Charlotte Bronte novel in which Fassbender plays the smoldering Mr. Rochester — we got the Irish-German actor to spill a few details about the highly anticipated X-Men film.

How much will this “X-Men” go into your character Magneto’s past?

You will see a little bit of that, yeah, at the beginning but I thought what was interesting was what happened to him after the war – he gets that young gypsy girl out of the concentration camp that he falls in love with. They take off together and have a baby and the mob ends up going crazy and burning down the house and the child dies in the blaze. Magneto goes ape s$#! and kills everybody. She’s freaked out and leaves him. So by the time we get to him in the movie, he’s a bit of a loner, really.

Metro: Performing opposite James McAvoy who plays Professor X - who your character is close friends with before you become mortal enemies - must’ve been an attractive component to doing this film.

Fassbender: Definitely a big draw for me. At signing up, I only knew that James was attached to be in the film so I thought okay, he’s an intelligent guy and he’ll bring something to it.

Can you talk a little bit about the changes we see Magneto go through in the film?

It’s kind of like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X — Charles [Professor X] being Martin Luther and Erik [Magneto] being Malcolm X — these two ideals, two intelligent guys but with different methods of achieving what they want. Erik doesn’t trust humans and thinks they need to be wiped away and I can kind of see his point. It’s like Homo Sapiens, Neanderthals … it’s like it’s the next stage of evolution. And humans have made a bit of balls of it. We have, haven’t we?

How was working with the special effects?

Ah that’s John Dykstra — he’s the guy who did the original Star Wars and sh—t. There’s something for the fanatics out there. He’s an amazing guy. But how do I feel about acting with a tennis ball? That didn’t bother me so much. It’s like saying in theater that it’s supposed to be cold and you see a town off in the distance — it’s kind of the same thing.

How do you feel about the fact that after this movie comes out, you won’t be able to walk down the street in peace.

It’s going to be an interesting thing. There are so many X-Men fans out there. Hopefully, they’re going to be happy. They didn’t seem to be happy with the last two installments so hopefully this will please them again.

Fassbender Chats About Magneto's Past In 'X-Men: First Class'

Last week we all feast our eyes on the first official teaser trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class,” the prequel to the highly popular movie franchise that helped kick-start a new era in comic book films. Throughout the movies there has been mention of the complicated past between X-Men leader Charles Xavier and the villainous Magneto/Erik Lehnsherr.

Now we finally get to see that friendship blossom and wither away on screen, but how much will we find out about the “pro-homo superior” villain in “First Class”?

During an interview, actor Michael Fassbender gives a bit more insight on how much of Magneto’s past will be shown.

“You will see a little bit of that, yeah, at the beginning, but I thought what was interesting was what happened to him after the war - he gets the young gypsy girl out of the concentration camp that he falls in love with. They take off together and have a baby and the mob ends up going crazy and burning down the house and the child dies in the blaze. Magneto goes ape sh*t and kills everybody. She’s freaked out and leaves him. So by the time we get to him in the movie, he’s a bit of a loner, really.”

If you’ve read the X-Men comics, you know the gypsy girl is actually the mother of mutants Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. She gives birth to the two shortly after she leaves Lehnsherr. Does that mean there’s a possibility that their existence will be hinted in “First Class”? We’ll just have to wait and see when “X-Men: First Class” arrives in theaters on June 3rd.

Michael Fassbender Reveals What We Will See Of Magneto's Past In X-Men: First Class

In a recent interview Fassbender speaks about what Eric Lensherr goes through between getting out of the concentration camp and meeting up with Charles Xavier and how it will affect his performance in the movie..
In an interview with Metro US Michael Fassbender speaks about what we can expect to see from Eric Lensher's past in Mathew Vaughn's X prequel..

When asked what we will be seeing of Magento's past..

"You will see a little bit of that, yeah, at the beginning but I thought what was interesting was what happened to him after the war – he gets that young gypsy girl out of the concentration camp that he falls in love with. They take off together and have a baby and the mob ends up going crazy and burning down the house and the child dies in the blaze. Magneto goes ape s$#! and kills everybody. She’s freaked out and leaves him. So by the time we get to him in the movie, he’s a bit of a loner, really."

Fassbender also reiterates that he will be playing this role (along with James McCavoy as Charles Xavier)as was always originally intended for the characters. One mirroring Malcolm X, and the other Martin Luther King..

"It’s kind of like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X — Charles [Professor X] being Martin Luther and Erik [Magneto] being Malcolm X — these two ideals, two intelligent guys but with different methods of achieving what they want. Erik doesn’t trust humans and thinks they need to be wiped away and I can kind of see his point. It’s like Homo Sapiens, Neanderthals … it’s like it’s the next stage of evolution. And humans have made a bit of balls of it. We have, haven’t we?"

When asked about how he will feel about being recognized wherever he goes after the movie Fassbender responds by recognizing that Fox's last two X movies left a lot to be desired in the eyes of many fans..

"It’s going to be an interesting thing. There are so many X-Men fans out there. Hopefully, they’re going to be happy. They didn’t seem to be happy with the last two installments so hopefully this will please them again."
