Many people face tough decisions in life, and I feel for them. I really do. Well, I don’t, but for argument’s sake, I do. And then there’s Michael Fassbender, who is facing a quandary of epic proportions. I mean, I can’t imagine what the man is going through right now, torn, divided and downright ravished. Don’t you feel for him, too?
Yes, Michael Fassbender is in the awkward, unbearable position that no one – especially not us average Joe’s – would ever want to be in: he has to decide whether he wants to play the villain in X-Men: First Class or the villain in the Spider-Man Reboot. Can’t you just relate to him? Can’t you just feel what he’s going through? I pity him, I really do.
I mean, in one corner, he has potentially millions of dollars waiting for him, fame and a blockbuster movie. In the other, he simply has millions of dollars, fame and a blockbuster movie. Michael Fassbender, I wouldn’t want to be you.
To be serious for a moment, Fassbender has been offered both the roles of Magneto and an unknown villain in Spider-Man, according to Showbiz 411. Even though both are Marvel films, they’re being developed at two different studios and, due to scheduling issues, won’t be able to do both. The guy should just fire his agent right now.
Personally, I’d go with the Spider-Man Reboot. If he takes on Magneto, then he’ll be compared to Ian McKellan, and that’s not an easy battle to win.
