Updated: Who’s Enrolling in X-Men: First Class?

Update (July 28th, 2010):  Looks like some TWILIGHT stars are getting in on the action in X-Men: First Class.  TWILIGHT baddie Edi Gathegi is the newest addition to the class roster as the adaptable mutant Darwin.  Rumors have been circling around that even Edi’s castmate Taylor Lautner might make an appearance in the film as a young Wolverine.  Thankfully that will not happen because not only would that suck, but it would make senses in the X-Men movie time-line.

Update:Add Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) to the cast of X-Men. She’ll be portraying Mystique. Thanks to Hollywood Reporter for the scoop.

Update:Kevin Bacon has been added to the cast for X-Men: First Class. He will be a central villain. The question is, who could it be? The fans have been speculating Mr. Sinister.

From Entertainment Weekly, Lucas Till (Hannah Montana: The Movie) is in negotiations to play Alex “Havok” Summers. He’s Cyclops’ little brother and has the power to shoot plasma blasts out of his body. As Cyclops’ little brother, he resents him because he feels like a shadow behind him and would rather do his own thing, like becoming a leader in a government-formed team, X-Factor. I wonder of Polaris will be in this too. As for the rest of the cast so far:

As for Hank “Beast” McCoy, it has been said that Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, Clash of the Titans) will cover for him. Seems like Hank is looking really boyish.

Caleb Landry Jones (The Last Exorcism, The Social Network) will fill in for Sean “Banshee” Cassidy, who’s a real loudmouth.

James McAvoy (Narnia, Wanted) will be playing Professor Charles Xavier, the creator of the X-Men and is the most powerful telepath.

Michael Fassbender (300, Inglourious Basterds) will bend metal as Eric “Magneto” Lensherr.

Update: January Jones has been confirmed as Emma Frost.

And last but not least, Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) will be the sexy Emma Frost, the hottest X-babe, second only to Psylocke (my opinion of course).
