Michael Fassbender has recent controversial statement which could be interpreted that he is bored with his role as Magneto in the X-Men movies and could leave the franchise based on the Marvel comic books.
In a recent interview, Fassbender described his acting in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” playing Magneto, as just some “dude shouting” doing it for the “ridiculousness.”
“I don’t actually like that performance there, to be honest. I just think it’s me shouting. It’s just like some dude shouting. The actor scowled and flapped his arms to emphasize the ridiculousness of his performance,” Fassbender, who plays the villain “Magneto” in the X-Men movies, stated via CBR.com.
The article notes that Fassbender made the comments while speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival fundraiser in Toronto, Canada.
The statement can be interpreted that he’s bored with his role as Magneto and could leave the X-Men franchise soon. The 39-year-old Fassbender, who was born in Germany, also claimed that shooting Marvel movies are easy compared to his other films.
Michael Fassbender is known for his role as Steve Jobs in the film with the same title in 2015. He also has starred in other movies like “Jonah Hex”, “Shame” and “Haywire”, among other movies recently.
Fassbender also played the same villain Magneto in “X-Men: First Class” in 2011 and
“X-Men: Apocalypse” released earlier this year.
Michael Fassbender is likely to return to the X-Men franchise with the popular super hero movie one of the top earners in his movies in his career despite being unchallenged by his Magneto role.
