      I agree, but I think Professor X should be the potted plant and Magneto the parakeet.

    I dunno. The comparison would be too direct when Xavier and Magnus relationship in terms of racial ideology was almost directly based on MLK/Malcolm X. Also, I think Magnus being a holocaust survivor is way too big of an aspect of his character to give up like that.

      You could have it so that Mangus is a survivor of the Rwandan Genocide. The ages would work, and it stops Magneto from being 90+ years old.

        I don't think you understand why dropping the holocaust survivor aspect won't be moving forward.

        I'll give you a hint: it's not because of the genocide survivor part.

      This has always been 100% wrong and idiotic projection by morons who can't see two feet in front of them. Claremont was explicit about how their relationship was based on moderate vs. radical Israeli politics.

          >Actually, Claremont says he always saw Professor X and Magneto as echoes of David Ben-Gurion and Menachem Begin. “My view of Magneto” – originally created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby as a magnetic-powered supervillain who wanted to take over the world – “is that he’s the terrorist who might someday evolve into a statesman.”
          https://nymag.com/nymetro/arts/features/3522/
          >There’s a lot of talk online now that Magneto stands in for Malcolm X and Xavier stands in for Martin Luther King, which is totally valid but for me, being an immigrant white (Claremont was born in England), to make that analogy felt incredibly presumptuous. An equivalent analogy could be made to [Israeli prime minister] Menachem Begin as Magneto, evolving through his life from a terrorist in 1947 to a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 30 years later.
          https://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/x-men-wolverine-jean-grey-chris-claremont-five-key-storylines/
          >When asked about the [MLK-Malcolm X] comparisons, Claremont said, regarding his early work in the 1970s, "It was too close. It had only been a few years since the assassinations. In a way, it seemed like that would be too raw. My resonance to Magneto and Xavier was borne more out of the Holocaust. It was coming face to face with evil, and how do you respond to it? In Magneto's case it was violence begets violence. In Xavier's it was the constant attempt to find a better way."
          http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Movies/06/03/xmen.legacy.go/
          Claremont does admit that the MLK-Malcolm X comparison made more sense later on in the 80s and 90s, but his initial inspiration was always Israel.

            You dont know shit about Malcolm, right?

            It doesn't matter if that was the original inspiration or not, it's clear that the american writers would base this ideological conflict more and more around those two as the story came to modern days. It's all about perception, My point still stands that, for me, it would bring the subtext to the overtext when Mutants were always supposed to be used as a allegory to whichever minority is the focus in each generation.

      If they use Esposito, I would love it if they had him be much more fatherly and shit.
      I know its just a snippet of a snippet and there's no real characterization, and its a stupid thing to favourite, but my favourite thing he's done is a Destiny trailer waaaay back in the day. Where he's just reading a tale to his kid, and its mostly voice over while Guardians do shit. But that sort of kind, fatherly, but mythical vibe is what I want from a role for him.
      Which. I think would be spot on for a take on Xavier, without the creepy and dickhead Xavier stuff.

      I'm not an actor but I can't imagine it feels too terrible to be typecast after a beloved performance. Like from an artistic perspective, the fact that people keep begging you to do The Role means that you've created a culturally important piece of art. You're a living legend.
      Oh, and the fat sacks of cash from new roles. Those help ease the pain too.

    Giancarlo Esposito gets typecast as villains for a reason. He's damn good at it. I don't want him to be Prof. X because I see him as cold and calculating, not the father figure who deeply cares about every student.

    I'd be fine with it. I think current audience's would like it with the only issue being Magneto losing the holocaust background.

    It's also a good way for the movie to set itself apart more from other adaptations.

      Tbh you could pretty easily replace it with him being a survivor of any more recent genocide and not really lose anything.

    You feel like an actor who was as big as he was would've pursued doing something in capes by now if he really wanted.

      A lot of the 80s- early2000s wave of big actors seem to have the same stance on MCU films, "alright give me a role where I can show up, play the support or villain, and then be done with this weird constant green screen shit".
      It's pretty much confirmed acting in those things is a fricking nightmare for actors who rely on sets and props to help anchor them to the role

    Guess that the only way for a modern day Magneto to stop being a leftover from Uncle Adolf's funny summer camps is if somebody carries about a bigger israelite killing operation in the future.

    A far more interesting angle would be for MCU Erik to be the son or grandson of Holocaust survivors, while being a hardcore Zionist, prior to his mutant powers emerging. But there's no way Disney would allow that for obvious reasons.

    We're never going to get a better comics-accurate version of these characters than Stewart and McKellen, they might as well try something a little different this time around. It's not like this is our one shot to get the characters exactly like in the comics, we already got THAT. So sure, make them both black, make Mags a Rwandan genocide survivor. I'm down.
