Aaron Johnson as a "Kick-Ass" Cyclops in X-Men: First Class?
Posted 07.08.10 by BrentJS
After a photo surfaced online last month showing director Matthew Vaughn with his Kick-Ass star, Aaron Johnson, and James McAvoy, recently cast in the lead role of Prof. X in Vaughn's new movie, X-Men: First Class, rumors began spreading that Johnson would also be joining the X-Men prequel. It was speculated that Johnson might portray Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, the mutant with the devastating red eye blasts portrayed by James Marsden in the original trilogy.
Now, AICN is reporting that two different sources have confirmed that Johnson is "one hundred percent locked" in the role of young Cyclops. Obviously, this is still just another rumor in a long list of recent rumors about the movie, but if it turns out to be true the official confirmation should be forthcoming as First Class is expected to go into production in the next couple months.
