Is Multiple Man Enrolling in Matthew Vaughn’s X-MEN: FIRST CLASS?

     July 2, 2010

Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters may be getting a lot more mutants.  Well, actually just a lot of the same mutant.  Comic Book Movie reports that the character Multiple Man (real name: Jamie Maddrox) will among the students in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class.  For those who can’t already guess, Maddrox’s power is that he can make copies of himself.  He was a villain in X-Men: The Last Stand (played by Eric Dane), which leads me to wonder which “X-Men” movies are canon at this point and which are being ignored.  It’s possible that Maddrox is a pupil who “went bad”, but I continue to advocate that The Last Stand should be forgotten.

Hit the jump for a list of the other mutants we can expect to see in the upcoming film.  X-Men: First Class is set to open on June 3, 2011.

Here’s how the current cast lines up:

And as for rumored casting:

Based off a treatment by Bryan Singer, First Class is about the beginnings of the X-Men and the falling out between Xavier and Magneto.
