Kevin Bacon had signed on to play a villain in the upcoming movie X-Men: First Class.
However, Fox had declined to say which villain the actor would be playing and preferred to keep mum about it - no doubt to make an announcement at Comic-Con perhaps?
And most people, including me, were thinking that Bacon would be playing one of the X-Men's most nefarious villains, Mister Sinister.
Now, a story over at Forces of Geek (based on a source they have) is claiming that Bacon will play Sebastien Shaw - another nefarious villain - who is the leader of the Hellfire Club:
It seems that Sebastian Shaw figures heavily in the film's plot.

Keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed yet and list this news under rumour, though it's a very plausible one.
What say you - Sebastian Shaw or Mister Sinister for Kevin Bacon?
