Michael Fassbender talks to SHH about how much of Magneto’s origin story we’ll see in X-Men: First Class:
“We see the stuff that’s happening in the concentration camp, you see that, but you don’t see that relationship (with Magda). I’ve just held that for my own personal use (in developing) the character, so when we meet him at the beginning of this film, he’s definitely a lone wolf. He’s on a mission and he’s uncompromising and then he bumps into Charles, literally collides into him, and then it’s the development of their relationship and really exploring that during the ’60s and the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King an Malcolm X.”
