David Goyer directing "Magneto" spin off

The story focuses on a young Magneo as he comes to grips with his mutant ability to manipulate metal objects as he and his parents try to survive in Auschwitz. Magneto meets Professor Xavier when the latter is a soldier liberating the concentration camp.

Magneto hones his powers by hunting down and killing Nazi war criminals who tortured him, and his lust for vengeance turns Xavier and Magneto into enemies.

That could actually be cool. Since they are younger, McKellan and Stewart won't be in it, but younger, fresher actors. Head over to Dark Horizons for more.
