David Goyer to Direct ‘X-Men’ Spin-Off

Batman Begins writer David Goyer is setting his sights on another superhero property–he is directing the spin-off movie to the X-Men trilogy, Magneto.

The movie will focus on the young Magneto, the villain of the X-Men pictures, and how he became mortal enemies with character Professor X, played by Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart in the trilogy.

The main characters in the spin-off will be played by actors in their twenties instead of the original cast.

Goyer has previously worked on superhero movies Batman Begins and the Blade trilogy as well as new movie The Invisible.
