Mr. Sinister Smells Like Bacon



?Kevin Bacon, who has been officially cast as the villain in X-Men: First Class. Please note that the villain is unknown; rumors are it’ll be Mr. Sinister, hence by ridiculous article title, but I guess he could be Apocalypse or Mojo or someone else. The only X-Men villain he can’t be is Magneto, since Michael Fassbender is playing the younger version of Mags… although that makes me wonder why they’re shoehorning Magneto into yet another movie which doesn’t seem to need him. Who told Fox that Magneto needs to be in every X-Men film? He doesn’t. Really. I promise. He is just one of many X-villains. Yes, he hates humanity, but he still deserves a break now and then.
