First there was the lofty rumor from a limo driver that Hugh Jackman had shot a cameo as Wolverine for Matthew Vaughn's upcoming Marvel Comics prequel X-Men: First Class, which producer Bryan Singer quickly shot down. Now, Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar is creating another cameo dust-up by claiming that the character of Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, is set to appear in the movie.
Still no Cyclops in X-Men: First Class
Millar, whose Kick-Ass comic book adaptation was directed by Vaughn, had this to say via his Twitter account:
"Text from Vaughn about X-Men set visit. Family excited not because it's X-Men but coz wee guy from Hannah Montana is Cyclops! Dare I say?"
As it has been stated in the past by Bryan Singer, neither Scott Summers/Cyclops nor Jean Grey will be appearing in X-Men: First Class. And Mark Millar doesn't quite know what he is talking about. The Hannah Montana kid in question is Lucas Till, and he will actually be playing Scott's brother Alex Summers, aka Havok. As the rumor started to spread, someone on Twitter called Millar on his facts. Here is what Millar said, which should prove that Cyclops is not in X-Men: First Class:
"Is (Lucas Till) Havok? I've no idea. We just heard he's in it and the only thing more exciting to them would be Taylor Lautner in it."
So, there you go. No Cyclops in X-Men: First Class.
X-Men: First Class was released June 3rd, 2011 and stars James McAvoy, Laurence Belcher, Michael Fassbender, Bill Milner, Kevin Bacon, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Beth Goddard. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn.
