Benjamin Walker Leaves X-Men: First Class

It was reported not long ago that the 28 year old actor had nabbed the role of Beast on X-Men: First Class. Now the actor has left the project and will return to theatre.

According to showbizz411 it has a lot to do with the success of Twilight and Fox's lack of success with it's own recent movies. Well, partly. Seems Walker may have been too old for the role which was making Fox nervous and the studio apparently even looked at Taylor Lautner's filming availabilities!

Go read the full report here.

Do we really need more emo teenagers on screen?


  1. So basically X-Men first class is going to try and cash in on the 'teens with powers' craze - which means we can kiss an entertaining, well written X-Men movie goodbye. That's what I read.

  2. That's unfortunately what I'm getting too.
